Born of the original king of the mountain, our Elite e2 brings super-premium clarity and brightness within the reach of most avid enthusiasts.

Our revolutionary Rainguard coating eliminates lens fogging and scatters water droplets for an infallibly clear view. Elite e2 binoculars are also 100% waterproof, fogproof* and built around a tough, lightweight magnesium chassis. Rugged rubber armor seals the deal, along with another place at the top of the optical food chain.

From the Manufacturer

Advanced technology makes the Elite the standard against which other spotting scopes are measured for brightness, clarity and resolution of detail. Fully multi-coated optical surfaces provide maximum light transmission and enhanced image brightness. Large objectives allow maximum light gathering ability. Sealed and nitrogen-purged for water and fogproof performance. Now with Bushnell's exclusive Rainguard, you'll see crisp, clear views even in inclement weather. Complete with a water-resistant, black canvas zippered carrying case.

Specifications for this Bushnell spotting scope include:

  • Magnification: 20-60x
  • Objective lens: 80mm
  • Field of view (feet at 1,000 yards): 98 at 20x, 50 at 60x

Tech Talk
Magnification: Spotting scopes are often referred to by two numbers separated by an "x". For example: 15-45x60. The first number is the power or magnification of the spotting scope. With a 15-45x60 variable power spotting scope, the object being viewed appears to be 15-45 times closer than you would see it with the unaided eye.

Field of View: Field of view is the side-to-side measurement of the circular viewing field or subject area. It is defined by the width in feet or meters of the area visible at 1000 yards or meters. A wide field of view is better for following fast-moving action or scanning for wildlife. Generally, the higher the magnification, the narrower the field of view.

Rainguard: Our exclusive, patent-pending, hydrophobic (water-repellent) coating on which condensation from rain, fog or snow forms in much smaller droplets than on standard coatings. Smaller droplets scatter less light which results in increased light transmission and a clearer image.

Not having any experience with binoculars to speak of, or another fairly expensive pair to compare these against, these may actually be 5 star binoculars in this price range. Anyway some descriptions state that the eyepieces are rollup to allow for different eyeglasses. I took rollup to mean you bend the rubber cups up or down, actually they twist up, counter clockwise to move each lens further away and clockwise to make them flush with the unit. Each lens moves as one piece while the rubber eyecup stays as it is.

I bought these for my wife to view a football game without having to take off her pretty high prescription(correction) glasses every time she wanted to see something. Now the theory was that the closer the eyes were to the binoculars the better, so the adjustable eyepieces were closed completly and held up against her glasses after the adjustments for the distance between her eyes and the diopter setting were made. This resulted in black spots where she could not see anything where as I could see everything. Moving the adjustable eyepieces out to their maximun distance from the binoculars resulted in her seeing everything and my seeing double images.

But my prescription strength is way less than hers and these were just for her to use. Any set of binoculars would have had the same result. I like the fact that the diopter setting can be locked in place, even the focus knob can be locked in place. Both adjust by simply pulling them out toward the eyepieces or pushing them in toward the front to lock them in place.

Once we found the combination that worked for her, she could see crystal clear images while wearing her glasses and is very happy with them. I also can see clearly when I change her settings while wearing my glasses.
