They can be mounted on a tripod with a separately sold adapter, and comes with a Vortex GlassPak harness for comfortable use during hours of observation.

The Diamondback HD renders views with minimal chromatic aberration, exceptional color fidelity, edge-to-edge sharpness, and optimal light transmission through the use of ultra high definition glass, an index-matched lens configuration, XR Plus lens coatings, and dielectric-coated, phase-correcting roof prisms.

The housing is argon filled and sealed with O-rings to ensure reliable and durable protection against dust, debris, fog, and water.
