Made to the absolute highest standards the Razor HD 20-60x85 Straight Spotting Scope from Vortex delivers the pinnacle of sport optic performance available today. The Razor HD starts off with an apochromatic triplet objective lens system, which aims to precisely align renderings of all colors exactly within a single point. Employing extra-low dispersion glass within the objective, the apochromatic performance advantage is especially notable when you're sighting darker subjects cast in front of washed-out, bright backgrounds. This scenario occurs all the time when birdwatching and observing wildlife. Edges are crisp, and highlights well controlled.
Beyond optical brilliance, the Razor HD's functionality is beyond reproach. The included zoom eyepiece yields 20-60x magnification with an impressive apparent field of view at higher powers. Dual-ratio focusing, favored on many of the best, gets you roughly where you want in a jiffy and allows especially-refined fine tuning capacity. A side-mounted, removable peepsight helps get subjects in the scope's view, and the body's magnesium alloy construction, ArmorTek water & oil repelling coating on the eyepiece and objective, and argon purging keep it fully operational in all conditions for years to come.
The Razor HD makes for a great digiscoping base, and is backed by a direct, unconditional warranty: if it breaks or if you break it, they'll fix it, and if you should sell your scope secondhand, they'll do the same for the new owner. There is no time limit on this promise.
