The Ares 15-45 family of spotting scopes were designed with advanced optical quality and ease of use in mind. Designed with bright, razor-sharp imagery and a rugged, weatherproof design, the Ares is ready for any condition. The interchangeable eyepiece allows you to swap the standard variable power eyepiece with a fixed 22 power eyepiece (sold separately) with a MIL ranging reticle in it for your long range shooting/tactical application.   They have Extra-Low Dispersion glass lenses for color resolution and contrast, our AFMC (advance fully multi-coatings), and feature BaK4 prisms with the new ESP Dielectric Coating. They bring clarity and brightness within the reach of most enthusiasts. The tough full metal chassis is fog proof and waterproof and filled with Argon gas to prevent internal fogging and better thermal stability. The lenses are then treated externally with our XPL coating to withstand dirt, oil, and grime of constant use. Choose from three different models – each distinctly different in size so you have a scope tailor-made for your specific activity.



Aprochromatic Lens System Apochromatic lense system gives you the result of images which have greater contrast, sharpness and color definition
UHD Glass Extra-low dispersion glass gives you an image with little or no chromatic fringe so the final result brings an ultimate clearest and sharpest image to your eyes
Interchangeable Eyepiece Interchangeable Eyepiece allows you to swap the standard variable power eyepiece with a fixed 24 power eyepiece with a MIL ranging reticle in it.
ESP Dielectric Coating ESP Dielectric Coating is a multi layer prism coating that reflects over 99% of the light to your eyes bringing you a clear, bright image that displays accurate color reproduction.
Aluminum Alloy Chassis Aluminum alloy chassis offers you the strength of a metal chassis and the life time durability.
XPL Coating XPL Coating gives you an extra protection on the exterior lenses from dirt, oil and scratches
Bak4 Prism Bak-4 glass prisms reflect more light to your eyes thus will give you brighter and sharper image.
Advanced Fully Multi-Coated Advanced Fully Multi-Coated lenses bring you better light transmission to bring optimum brightness and true color across the entire light spectrum.
Argon Purged Argon Purging uses the inertia gas with bigger size molecules to purge any moisture out of the tube giving you better waterproofing and thermal stability .
Waterproof Waterproof to protect the spotting scope in the harshest weather conditions or if accidently submerged underwater

    Been using this Spotter for over a year now for hunting, shooting and digiscope. Was really concerned about spending $1K on a spotter (my price point) but was blown away at the performance of this scope and would do it again in a heartbeat. The &700.00 price point competes with &1K scopes for sure. I spend over 70 days a year in the field and was looking for a high quality scope for a reasonable price (I think us hunters are always looking for the best bang for the buck). The glass is exceptional in this scope. I have owned two other scopes in the $300.00 range, one of which is a 60x scope and the Athlon 45x is a much more crisp, clear and focused scope than any of the other two I own. I was blown away at how this 45X power scope could outperform a 60x scope (you truly get what you pay for). I am a believer in HD glass! The size is perfect for the backpack hunter. It’s compact and takes up less room in a pack than a 60x scope for sure. This is a very high quality scope and I would recommend it to anyone looking for a compact, high quality scope. I have not had the opportunity to test the warranty and hope I never have to but Athlon’s warranty is complete peace of mind. Do your homework if you’re are in the market for a compact scope in the $1k price range. This scope is the ticket!

    In March, 2020 I bought the Ares 15-45 x 65 ED , as part of my guiding equipment. I decided to go with this model because of compact size and close focus(very useful in the tropical forest since animals can be very close to you). Since COVID, I was not able to try it with costumers. I did used for bird watching in Costa Rica and I think is an excellent option for someone in a budget. Very sharp image, even at 45x. I love the eye piece and objective cover. I also got a Phone Skope and they work great together. Something to consider is that the rubber armor that protects the scope started to break(open) and I had to send it back to warranty. I understand that this year things are very different but I had to wait 2 month to get a new unid. I did not like that they called me to talk about the scope(I personally rather email, more formal). I got this new version last week (Ares G2 UHD 15-45×65 – 45 Degree) and I really like. I hope to use it more to have a more reliable feedback on this new model.
