Vortex Razor HD 11-33x50 Spotting Scope (Angled Viewing)
Key Features
  • Angled Viewing
  • 11-33x Zoom Eyepiece
  • 50mm Objective Lens
  • Dielectric-Coated Porro Prism
The angled-viewing Razor HD 11-33x50 Spotting Scope from Vortex features high-quality glass with specialized optical coatings to provide clear and bright images. The triplet apochromatic lens elements 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 XR anti-reflective coatings to minimize light loss. Additionally, they are ArmorTek coated for scratch resistance. To ensure accurate color across the entire visible spectrum, the Porro prisms are dielectric coated. These coatings are highly reflective and lose less than 1% of the light that passes through them. The use of Porro prisms creates a better depth of view over roof prisms. This combination of coatings and optics creates a spotting scope that produces bright, clear, highly contrasted images with accurate color transmission.

The video shows what looks like a completely different scope than this one. It shows the focusing mechanism as just a single rotation ring on the body. This one is described as having small coarse and fine rotation rings separate from the body. Which is correct?
Asked by: John
The video on the page of the Vortex Razor HD 11-33x50 Spotting Scope (Angled Viewing) shows a different scope. While there are similarities, the focusing mechanism is as indicated on the page, and not as indicated in the video.

question

Can a camera somehow be attached?
Asked by: Richard C.
Not really. There is no attachment for this small scope to attach a camera, and the eyepiece doesn't have the FOV for digiscoping. The Razor 65mm and 85mm scopes do have digiscoping attachments and better Long Eye Relief objectives for attaching cameras.
