Vortex RS-65S overview

  • 1Description

The Vortex Optics straight-through-viewing Razor HD 22-48x65 Spotting Scope is engineered with superior glass and specialized optical coatings to provide clear and bright images at all magnifications. The triplet apochromatic lens configuration 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 that improve brightness, clarity, and color accuracy. This combination of coatings and optics creates a spotting scope that produces bright, clear, high-contrast images with accurate color rendition.

The lightweight and armored magnesium-alloy 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.

    Vortex RS-65S reviews

    Razor HD 22-48x65 Spotting Scope (Straight Viewing) is rated 4.0 out of 5 by 4.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great as always I bought this spotting scope a few months ago and love it. I have to rifle scopes and this new spotting scope. I wouldn't trade them for any other scopes. I will upgrade my other scopes to Vortex when I can. Also Ryan always goes a great job supporting me!!!!

    Rated 2 out of 5 by from Black fitted case (Razor HD 65mm straight) Mine needed to be restitched as it did not fit well upon receipt. It has since torn in two places at the seam. Nothing a little string and thread couldnt fix. Im sure the case that comes with the scope is sufficient and not a necessary purchase.
