The Vortex Optics 45° angled viewing Razor HD 27-60x85 Spotting Scope is engineered with an oversized objective, superior glass and specialized optical coatings to provide clear and bright images at all magnifications and lighting conditions. The triplet apochromatic lens is made of High Density (HD) Extra-low Dispersion (ED) glass to increase light transmission, minimize distortion and virtually eliminate chromatic aberration. All air-to-glass surfaces have Vortex's XRPlus anti-reflective coatings to minimize light loss and maximize image brightness, while the Porro prisms have highly-reflective dielectric coatings which improve brightness, clarity, and color accuracy. This combination of coatings and optics create a spotting scope that produces bright, clear, high-contrast images with accurate color rendition.

The lightweight and armored magnesium chassis is O-ring sealed and argon-filled to be water and fogproof. A helical focus system, with a wide adjustment collar, allows for fast yet fine focusing even when wearing gloves. The scope has a 1/4"-20 tripod mounting shoe and a tripod collar that rotates to permit the eyepiece to be positioned in the best viewing position. A retractable lens shade helps to reduce glare while keeping snow or rain off the objective lens.

    Razor HD 27-60x85 Spotting Scope (Angled-Viewing) is rated 4.8 out of 5 by 40.
    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Excellent Spotter for Longer Range Precision Rifle This spotter is absolutely fantastic for longer range spotting needs. When I'm RO'ing longer range stages, the Razor HD works great. The focus is fast and precise and the clarity is phenomenal all the way up to max power! My ONLY issue with this spotter appear when stages are shorter range or require a wide field of view. Even on the low end, this spotter may be too much for mover engagements inside 500 yards or wider field fire engagements. It's not really a problem with the spotter, more just a design of the stage that makes it not ideal. Backed by the VIP warranty I never worry about it while packing in any conditions i encounter!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Nice Scope Have had this for about 10 days now. �I have used it to look at Jupiter and could see some of its moons. Could practically count the feathers of Bald Eagle perched in a tree not too far from my house.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Exceptional bang for the buck After I purchased the Razor binoculars I decided to go for a spotting scope as well. I compared it to the top of the line brands and it is almost on the top with those. The sharpness is not far from them but it’s capability to collect light is not as good as those. But with that said does not mean that it’s not good, I’ve spotted birds and other animals where the naked eye could have never spotted it. I can’t do anything but highly recommend this amazing optics. Attached to this review is one of my digiscoped photos and I can’t say I’m not satisfied with the result.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Unbeatable value and performance Well, we have looked through many high quality scopes over the years while hunting and birding with friends.s This one is among the best at any price. It is fantastic! AND my wife and I BOTH agree!!!! WOW! We are currently in the midst of the Spring Waterfowl migration and are amazed at how well we can see the subtle details that make a difference in identification between species, at very, very long distances, under all kinds of weather conditions. We've had it out in the rain, snow, high winds, low light, and even a nice day. It gets the job done, 100% as good as those costing 2 or 3 times more. Best Value by far and TOP performance under all conditions. The crew @ B&H Photo are right in line with the scope and Vortex tripod. Can't be beat IMO! They recommended it, promptly delivered it, and followed up after the sale. Best deal we found anywhere! Fantastic experience on all fronts! Only thing that either Vortex or B&H Photo should have done was to recommend we buy two. One for myself and one for my wife. Either that or a dual person eyepiece or big screen, weatherproof TV attached or at the very least, a timer to ring loudly when it is the other persons turn! And, I know it will be much worse when we take our kids and grandkids out to view the birds. Today I took a couple minutes to try out digiscoping for the first time. Just intended to get my feet wet so to speak, so I would know what help to seek. I was really excited when viewing the results. Some were fantastic! All could be used for bird id and some could be printed & framed & hung on the wall! First time out! Very windy conditions and low light made it very tough to get the kind of shutter speed needed to stop the action for those prime printed enlargements! Yet we got some! Can't wait for a break in the weather to see what it will do under optimal conditions! It has already surpassed my wildest expectations, and can't wait to see just how good it really is as a super zoom lens!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Just get one! I have Swarovski 8x56 binoculars and it is widely known their optics are spectacular. The Vortex Razor optics are equally spectacular. Just get one!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from 1st Gen scope I found a stellar deal on the 20-60x85mm, just after these were released. Amazing piece of equipment. I haven't looked through the European glass (that costs 2x to 3x as much). I can't imagine getting much better than this. I've watched hours of internet video, read reviews and comparisons of optics. Optics is one class of equipment where the value per dollar plateaus very definitely. You can spend just a little too little and be disappointed. You can find the point where you are convinced you just can't see any better (which is where I believe this scope is) or... you can spend more simply because spending more makes you feel like you have the best. Vortex really has it together. I have yet to find a product where they were not the best at the price point for that product line.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from great scope for the money we had an older Vortex diamond back - this is a great step up very clear and easy to focus much better optics
    Date published: 2018-04-22
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fantastic optic I don't think this scope can be improved. I've had it on a sheep/caribou hunt, two bear hunts and an elk hunt. I also never go to the range without it. I use it for digi-scoping on hunts. I bought an angled model so that I can keep my tripod lower, whether I'm sitting or standing. I've been amazed at how much light it lets in, and how clear it is. If you want to hook it to a DSLR camera, Google Novagrade. Works flawlessly.
