Avocet 50mm compact telescope with 8-24x eyepiece & case
Introducing our most compact telescope! This truly compact birdwatching scope packs high quality optics and surprising specs into a lightweight body with an affordable price tag. Incredibly versatile, you may find this becoming your 'go-to' scope. It's ideal for travel due to its portability, size and weight but equally at home as a first spotting scope for those of you new to using telescopes to watch wildlife. This wonderfully portable birding scope could also become a favourite for the more experienced birder - with no tripod required and some serious optics including impressive close focus, the Avocet 50mm compact scope has to be a strong contender for your next scope purchase.
- LIGHTWEIGHT - Weighs only 530g, less than many full-sized binoculars!
- SMALL FORM - Compact 17.6cm body means this can be held in one hand, will fit inside a car glove compartment and some coat pockets.
- SEE WILDLIFE CLOSE TO YOU - Incredibly close focus of just 1.5m, making this one of the best scopes you'll find for watching wildlife close up such as dragonflies, butterflies, small mammals and reptiles.
- WIDE FIELD OF VIEW - Up to 5 degrees / 87.5m/1000m, so it's easier to use than many other scopes
- QUALITY GLASS - Fully multi-coated optics, meaning every glass surface has multiple coatings, resulting in higher contrast, resolution and brightness.
- SERIOUS OPTICS - High quality BAK-4 (beating BK-7) prisms delivering a crisp and clear view right to the edges of the image.
- WATERPROOF - Fully waterproof, nitrogen filled to prevent fogging
- COMFORTABLE - Durable rubber body armour plus 18mm eye relief
- TRIPOD OPTION - Can be mounted on any conventional tripod.
- ACCESSORIES INCLUDED - No need to hunt around for accessories - arrives with everything you need to go out birdwatching straightaway.

If, like me, your budget won't extend to a better one, or you want a small scope, I would still recommend this scope, but only if you're prepared for some back and forth getting it up to scratch.
Thank you. We are pleased you are enjoying the quality of the optics, but are sorry to hear of the issues you have described. The focus wheel should loosen with use. Please contact our customer services team if you believe there is a fault with the cap.
We are very sorry to hear that you were disappointed. New optics can have stiff focus wheels initially, but should loosen quickly with use. If you do not see an improvement with the wheel, please contact customer services who will be happy to help.
