The Vortex Optics 45° angled 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 are 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-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.

    Razor HD 22-48x65 Spotting Scope (Angled-Viewing) is rated 4.8 out of 5 by 9.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Scope I just recently bought one for this years (2017) hunting season. I'm after antelope, elk, and deer so I can use it for all. It's a great scope and it already came in handy for antelope season. The optics are great and clear. I went with the 22-48 because I noticed the 27-60, when you got up in the 60 range, would really pick up the heat waves in the desert. They would almost distort the sight picture, even the 48 power does to some extent but it was really noticeable at 60. They are built like tanks and like always, you can't beat the VIP warranty. This is one of many Vortex scopes and spotting scopes that I own and I see no reason that I would ever change.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from This is a great spotting scope. This is a great spotting scope. It is well designed and well made. I bought it for birding and general wildlife viewing. I have also used it to look at the moon and for star gazing. I have been very impressed. It is light enough to easily carry into the field. It is very easy to use. i have been impressed by how clear it is, even in low light conditions. I have not been able to compare it to other brands, but it would be difficult to see how any other scope could be noticeably clearer. I would definitely recommend it to anyone.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Light weight and compact I purchased last spring with the hope of having a light weight compact scope to carry while scouting and hiking - it has helped me accomplish getting in on some great scouting. The scope is clear and is simple to adjust and focus - rubber coating makes it easy to hang onto - mounts easily to the tripod - glad I have it.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best brand hands down! I purchased this spotting scope after last years hunting season and could not wait to get it out in the field and put it to use. The season was finally among us and it surpassed my expectations. The clarity is unreal and the durability is second to none. Thanks Vortex for making great products!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love it! Bought this at the beginning of the year. Never regretted it. Used it looking for animals and sheds. Zero complaints with it. Spotted sheds at well over 1000 yards. Pair it up with a phone scope and we were spotting deer at almost a mile.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Glass Got this spotting scope as part of a birthday present to myself... Paired this scope with a Vortex tripod and PhoneSkope to give me amazing images and videos. Pics are from 2lbs of Tannerite shot with my 6.5 Creed at 450yds.
