Melville, NY (June 2019) –Nikon continues to expand its commitment to the precision long-range community with the introduction of two new reticle eyepieces for its flagship MONARCH Fieldscope series. The new MONARCH MEP-30 reticle eyepiece is offered with a choice of MRAD or MOA reticle—each allowing a spotter to locate and focus on the same target as their counterpart to communicate reference points and follow-up impact corrections.
Adaptable to all MONARCH Fieldscope bodies, the all-new MEP-30 reticle eyepieces provide 30x magnification on 82mm bodies and 24x on 60mm bodies. The integral FS-MRAD or FS-MOA glass-etched reticles also include an appropriate milling scale for highly detailed measurements of targets.
Engineered to match the optical system of the MONARCH Fieldscope, the Field Flattener Lens System in the new MEP-30 eyepieces provide exceptional edge-to-edge clarity, resolution, life-like color and contrast. The new eyepieces feature a type-1 bayonet mount for simple and secure attachment to the MONARCH Fieldscope body. Like the Fieldscope body, the eyepieces are waterproof and fogproof (when attached to the body).
Current owners of MONARCH Fieldscopes can fit either eyepiece to a straight or angled 82mm or 60mm body. Nikon also offers the MEP-30 eyepiece with either FS-MRAD or FS-MOA reticle and the MONARCH Fieldscope 82A body as a package.
