Swarovski has announced its new ATC (Angled) and STC (Straight) line of compact spotting scopes. With a removable half shell, these spotters can be used with or without a tripod, which allows those who are seeking to cut as much weight as possible to retain a magnified viewing experience.

The new ATC and STC compact spotting scopes are available in green or orange armor, and weigh in under 35 ounces. The STC comes in at 11.2 inches in length and the ATC at just 10.2 inches, making both options a versatile optic to pack on any adventure.
