Maven Expands Line of CS.1 Spotting Scopes to Offer Straight and Angled Configurations

Maven, the Wyoming-based manufacturer of premium optics, today announced a new variation of the award-winning CS.1 spotting scope equipped with a straight eyepiece. Now available in two variations, with straight or angled eyepieces, both CS.1 spotting scopes provide the user with the same level of optical performance and clarity in the field.

With a 15-45x magnification range and a 65mm objective lens, the CS.1 line was developed to provide powerful yet compact spotting scopes that won’t break the bank. With the introduction of the CS.1S, customers can now choose a straight or angled eyepiece to best suit their needs.

“Feedback and reviews for CS.1A have been great, but we get a lot of requests for a direct version,” said Brendon Weaver, Maven co-founder and director of design and marketing. “We are always looking for ways to give customers what they need and fill in the gaps in our product offering, so we went to work on the CS.1S and are excited to have it available.”

Built to the same pedigree as the original CS.1A, as well as the brand’s other C-Series optics, the CS.1S features a well-balanced, lightweight magnesium/aluminum frame and fully multi-coated lenses. It also uses the brand’s Extra-low Dispersion (ED) glass to produce an exceptionally clear, bright, high-contrast image with incredible color reproduction and excellent low-light performance.

At just 12.13 inches long and 40.4 ounces in weight, it’s an excellent choice for hunters, bird watchers, wildlife watchers, and tourists looking for a mid-range spotting scope that’s easy to carry, use, and store in the field or at home.

Like all other Maven products, the CS.1S is covered by a lifetime warranty and, thanks to Maven’s direct-to-consumer business model, offers great value ($800) to match its exceptional performance.
