A high-end spotting 'scope without the high-end price tag, the new Vortex Viper HD 15-45x65 Spotting Scope series offers highly competitive features and food for thought when choosing a new scope within its price bracket.
Packed with features and incredible optical performance thanks to, but not limited to HD glass, XR Lens coatings, Dielectric prism coatings and Armortek external lens protection, these 'scopes bring far off subjects in for you to take a closer look – and do so with impressive clarity, resolution and colour fidelity.
The smooth and sleek helical focus allows you to focus on your subject quickly and smoothly for ultra sharp viewing as well as keeping its profile slim for easy storage. Argon gas purging offers superior internal waterproofing and fogproofing and the all-over rubber armouring protects the exterior of your scope.
Add to that the included stay-on Neoprene cover and you have one very highly specified all-in-one scope package!
HD Lens Elements - Optimised optical system delivers impressive resolution, cuts chromatic aberration and provides excellent colour fidelity, edge-to-edge sharpness and light transmission - resulting in High Definition views.
XR Lens Coatings - Vortex proprietary coatings increase light transmission with multiple anti-reflective coatings on all air-to-glass surfaces.
Dielectric Prism Coatings - Multi-layer prism coatings provide bright, clear, colour-accurate images.
Porro Prism - Offers maximum image quality and performance in a traditional design.
Angled Body Design - Valued for allowing an overall lower mounting height which maximises stability in wind, offers greater comfort when viewing for extended periods, and permits the use of a smaller, lighter tripod.
Waterproof - Optics are sealed with O-rings to prevent moisture, dust, and debris from getting inside the spotting scope.
Fogproof - Argon gas purging guarantees superior fogproof and waterproof performance.
ArmorTek - Exterior lenses are protected by ArmorTek - an ultra-hard, scratch-resistant compound that repels oil, dirt and the corrosive salts of fingerprints.
Adjustable Eyecup - Twists up and down to precise 'click-stop' settings for comfortable viewing with or without spectacles.
Helical / Barrel Focus - New Dual geared focus system allows for fast yet precise adjustments.
Sunshade - Reduces glare and shields the objective lens from raindrops and snow.
Rotating Tripod Collar - Allows rotation of the eyepiece to a sideways position - most useful for viewing through an angled spotting scope body on a car window mount.
