Swarovski Scope - close focus detail example (1 Viewer)

Hi everyone,

Here are some very short videos giving a close focus view of some teasels through a Swarovski scope, for anyone who might find it interesting.

I borrowed this model, so I believe it was an ATX 65mm (someone please correct me if I'm wrong). The video is broken up to allow for file size; one gives the view, the other gives distance and POV context. The camera was on a 2018 iPhone, and the location was RSBP Pulborough Brooks.

The detail is absolutely gorgeous. I'm going to do a comparison with my Vortex Razor soon.

ATS 65 HD. Lovely indeed, considering scopes aren't optimized for this. Then again, designers must have backyard feeders in mind.
