German Precision Optics’ SPECTRA™ 5X 3-15x56i: The Ultimate Low-Light Riflescope

Built as the ultimate low-light, high-performance riflescope, the German Precision Optics (GPO) SPECTRA 3-15x56i has been built to give you the premium performance serious hunters and shooters require in both low- or no-light shooting situations.

The SPECTRA 3-15x56i’s large 56mm objective lens system transmits an incredible amount of light to your eye, while the 3-15X variable power range provides ample magnification for both close and long-range shots. Throw in the proprietary iCONTROL™ microdot illumination and shot placement on dark targets will make you a believer. This scope comes standard with DoubleHD™ objective lens technology, iCONTROL illumination, PASSIONtrac™ turrets to assist your shooting scenario, and a G4i reticle. The turrets, designed for 0.36-inch adjustment at 100 yards (or 0.1 mrad), provide 90 inches of adjustment range. Custom turrets also are available. The main features of the SPECTRA 5X 3-15x56i include:

* GPObright™: A proprietary coating process that maximizes light transmission through each surface of an optical element. As light hits an optical surface, normal uncoated high-performance glass can reflect up to five percent of that light, redirecting this light so it does not transmit through the optical system. However, when these high-performance lenses are vacuum-coated with GPObright lens coatings, up to 99.7 percent of the available light passes through each optical surface. Furthermore, when every surface of the entire optical system is properly coated, total light transmission can reach up to more than 92 percent, making the optical image of a GPO binocular or riflescope “bright,” even in the lowest light conditions.

* Double HD Objective Lens Technology: This is the final product, created when multiple extra-low dispersion lenses are chemically laminated to make a single, multilayer high-performance optical lens. Laminating multiple lenses minimizes light reflection on the surface of multiple lenses, creates enhanced resolution and color contrast images, and minimizes chromatic aberrations. This benefit is clearly visible with all GPO products supporting this feature. This high-performance process is routinely found in the photographic market and with the highest-quality photographic lens manufacturers but has now transitioned into premium sporting optics.

* iControl™ Illumination: This assures users always have a live battery by automatically powering down the illumination when the electronic module has been stationary for more than 3 hours, and alerts users when the battery has only 15 percent remaining battery life. It also offers bright, fiber optic technology.
