The name Hummingbird reflects many of the qualities of hummingbirds: very small size, highly mobile (they can fly in most any direction at will), and capable of long-distance travel (many migrate between South and North America). The Celestron Hummingbird is a “micro” ED spotting scope, and like its namesake, the Hummingbird Micro Spotting Scope is as well suited to long-distance travel as it is to the backyard.
Ideally suited for travel – the Hummingbird will easily fit into a pocket, shoulder bag, or carry-on luggage. This spotting scope is perfect for traveling birders as a more travel-friendly alternative to a full-size spotting scope. The lowest magnification level can also serve as a substitute for a binocular.
The Waterproof / Nitrogen filled construction of the Hummingbird keep it protected against wet weather, humid conditions, and other environmental challenges. The durable armor works to keep the Hummingbird protected against bumps and jolts both during transport and in the field.
The Hummingbird is tripod / monopod / window mount adaptable providing a variety of options for viewing. This spotting scope can easily be secured to a stable platform for comfortable long-duration or long-distance viewing.
"The Hummingbird exceeds my expectations and has exceptional value. It delivered a crisp, bright view that was similar to the larger scopes and the angled eyepiece helped me avoid warbler’s neck. Durable and portable, the Hummingbird is fun to use and hassle-free on the go." - Bird Watcher's Digest
"The design is clean and modern. The 50ED weighs less than eight Clif Bars and is not much bigger than the head of a tripod, about the size of a pair of binoculars. Combine it with a lightweight carbon tripod and you can literally shed pounds." - ABA Magazine
