NEWINGTON, N.H., (August 27, 2020) – SIG SAUER Electro-Optics is pleased to announce the OSCAR8 HDX Variable Power Spotting Scope has received the Outdoor Life “2020 Editor’s Choice Award” for Best New Spotting Scope. 

The prestigious “Editor’s Choice” honor from Outdoor Life magazine is given to the best new products of 2020, across multiple product categories, after a rigorous testing and evaluation process.  The official award noted that the OSCAR8 27-55×80 Spotting Scope featured, “excellent optics in a hard-wearing package,” with “tight, responsive controls, from the removable angled eyepiece to the rubberized center-barrel focus, and the sunshade seemed to glide as though mounted on ball-bearing tracks.”

Andy York, SIG SAUER Electro-Optics President began, “the OSCAR8 offers hunters and shooters our highest-powered magnification capabilities, along with durability, versatility, and the latest advancements in glass, coatings and technology, resulting in a superior performance that can be counted on in the field.”

The OSCAR8 HDX Variable Power Spotting Scope combines extra-low dispersion glass with high light transmittance glass, a SCHMIDT-PECHAN prism, and fully multi-coated lenses to provide unmatched resolution, image contrast, color clarity, and image brightness.  Also featuring Spectracoat™ anti-reflection lens coatings to reduce surface reflections across the entire visible spectrum for superior light transmission.

The OSCAR8 has a 45-degree angled eyepiece and comes equipped with a rotating tripod collar for multiple viewing angles, a variable power eyepiece (can be locked into place or removed to accept other variable or fixed power eye-pieces), fast focus adjustment, and an ergonomic rubber armor for durability to accommodate setup and built specifically for hunters and shooters that demand the best in all-weather performance and durability in the field.

“We are honored to receive this top honor from Outdoor Life and have our continued advancements in product development recognized by our peers,” concluded York.
