This straight Victory DiaScope 15-56x65 T* FL Spotting Scope with Tripod from Zeiss is bundled with the Zeiss light-weight Carbon Fiber Tripod. The Victory Diascope offers crystal-clear high-powered viewing that reveals the subtle visual nuances of each subject. Vivid and accurate color rendition combined with maximum clarity and detail - even at twilight - becomes a tangible experience. The Zeiss 3-Section Carbon Fiber Tripod with Fluid head is an ideal lightweight support solution for long-distance spotting optics.

Employing an advanced optical path that delivers maximum contrast and superior color fidelity, the DiaScope spotter provides high-resolution viewing and excellent twilight performance. Featuring T* multicoated fluoride glass lenses, the DiaScope's field of view offers crisp edge-to-edge clarity with crystal-sharp pin-point details. To ensure optimum viewing regardless of the climate - the rugged ergonomic housing is nitrogen filled, waterproof and fogproof. A significant increase in the DiaScope's all-weather performance has been achieved by treating the exterior lens surfaces with Zeiss' LotuTec water-repellent protective coating to ensure the clearest views possible in any weather conditions.

This particular DiaScope provides straight viewing and it's configured with a 65 mm objective lens. Without its eyepiece, it measures 11.1"/28.2 cm in length and it weighs in at 39 oz/1.1 kg. The mounting foot is threaded to accept either 1/4"-20 or 3/8"-16 studs, and its rotating collar can be adjusted to provide a comfortable viewing position in nearly every situation.

The DiaScope's Dual Speed Focus (DSF) system is easy and intuitive to operate. The DSF's centered focus knob is geared for fine focusing within a 270° radius of an established focus - outside of that zone the focusing speed increases rapidly. When the observer finds a new focus, the DSF automatically resets to precision mode for fine-tuning the view.

This spotting scope package includes the Vario 15-56x/20-75x eyepiece. Its variable magnification capability adds versatility and flexibility that accommodates a variety of viewing situations. When used with the 65 mm DiaScope, this eyepiece provides 15-56x magnification.

Optically, the Vario DiaScope eyepiece has been engineered to match the performance of the DiaScope T* FL spotters. Achromatic fluoride-glass lenses have been implemented for their exceedingly high level of visual acuity and accurate color rendition. The exterior lens surfaces have been graced with a protective LotuTec coating that sheds water, mist, fog, and oils. By minimizing the presence of these image-dispersing contaminants, the LotuTec coating maximizes the lens' optical qualities. Every air-to-glass surface of each lens has been fully multicoated with Zeiss' proprietary T* coating to ensure optimum light transmission, contrast, and color fidelity.

A simple yet robust bayonet mount with a locking button ensures that the eyepiece fits securely to the DiaScope's housing - a simple twist-to-attach operation puts the ocular into its working position. A security lock button has to be held down to disengage the eyepiece. Eye/sunglass wearers will greatly appreciate the eyepiece's generous 16 mm of eye relief along with the adjustable twist-up rubber eyecup.

  • AAOV with 15-56x 41.1-60.0°
  • LotuTec coating: Sheds water, dirt, grease, grime. Lenses can be wiped clean without smearing
  • T* multicoating: lenses are fully multicoated with T* coatings to reduce flare, improve contrast, enhance light transmission
  • FL Concept: fluoride glass lens elements deliver brighter and sharper images with accurate color and higher levels of contrast. They minimize chromatic aberrations while virtually eliminating stray light interference, image fuzziness, low contrast

  • Front filter thread: M 67 x 0.75
  • Thread for adapting photo/astro adapter: M 45 x 0.5
  • Integral retractable sun shade shades and protects objective

Use and Handling
  • Rotating tripod collar with 1/4"-20 and 3/8"-16 mounting threads
  • DSF - dual-speed focusing: when a subject is in clear focus, the system sets itself into Precision Mode where a 270° rotation on either side of current focus is slow and precise. Outside of that zone the focusing speed increases 5x. Once a new focus is established, the system automatically drops back to Precision Mode.
