The original Leica TELEVID 77 and Apo-TELEVID 77 were among the most durable, shock resistant, and water proof field telescopes ever made. The latest generation, replacing the TELEVID 77, is the Leica Apo-TELEVID 82. The Leica Apo-TELEVID 82 carries on the tradition and brings with it noteworthy increase in light gathering power and resolution. In addition to its optical properties, the Leica Apo-TELEVID 82 is even more compact than its predecessor and the Leica Apo-TELEVID 82 is supported by a selection of the best engineered accessories which include several cases. Our optional Field case is an attractive, protective option for your straight or angled Leica TELEVID telescope. The durable Cordura Ever Ready Case makes it easier to carry the telescope, while providing peace of mind against moderate impact or cosmetic damage.
The Ever Ready Case is designed to:
The case succeeds in most of these aspects very well.
A Matter of Preference
The Leica APO-TELEVID 82 and APO-TELEVID 82 are available in the customer's choice of either straight or 45 degree angled body.
The case is precisely fitted, padded, and available in your choice for either the Straight Through View, or Angled (shown above) TELEVID 77 telescopes. This case includes a padded carrying strap to facilitate carrying the telescope in the field. With the telescope in this case, adn the covers in palce, one can throw the TELEVID into the trunk of a car, hike around rocky ledges, or store it in a backpack with the comfort of mind that the exterior finish is protected from scrapes. Our case also offers protection of the TELEVID from an environment where dirt or dust may contaminate the telescope or work into the eyepiece or focus mechanics. The shoulder strap of this case is well padded though somewhat stiff when new; in time it should break in yet remain durable.

Close But Not Perfect
The Ever Ready Case for this generation of the TELEVID is in some ways an improvement over the original TELEVID cases, and yet in someways this is simply poorly designed. Some aspects of this case are impractical, while other aspects overlook what happens when the user is wearing gloves and has reduced dexterity.
