The straight-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 lightweight magnesium-alloy body is O-ring sealed and argon filled to be water and fogproof. A dual-focus system features a coarse fast-focus and a fine-focus wheel. The scope has a tripod mounting shoe that also accepts a 1/4"-20 mounting bolt. A retractable lens shade keeps the Sun or rain off the objective lens.

    Razor HD 11-33x50 Spotting Scope (Straight Viewing) is rated 4.9 out of 5 by 11.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from A winner After years of using 8x30 and 10x40 binoculars, times come around when a little more reach is needed. Yet, who wants to carry around a lot of weight. This Razor HD 11-33x50 spotting scope fitted the bill perfectly for my purposes. Optical quality is excellent, I could not detect any chromatic aberration and aided by coarse and fine focus, the sharpness of the images are great. Compared to the standard spotting scope, this is quite light and compact. You do give up some magnification, but I already have a larger scope...which I rarely use, it being much bulkier to carry around. Keep a couple of things in mind - (a) eye relief at the higher powers is very short - forget about wearing glasses - your eye has to be up and very close to scope; (b)field of view is nowhere near that of binoculars for the same power.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Fits hunting and load development needs with precision! When shopping for a replacement spotting scope, I had conflicting criteria: 1 Provide excellent resolution for bullet hole spotting at 100-200 yards for load development 2 Very light weight (I live in the Rockies...) so it would always find its way into my backpack when hunting 3 Work well for digiscoping 4 Excellent light gathering for dusk/ dawn use 5 Uber-warranty Happy to say, it meets all criteria quite well. Only 4 stars because an internal lens was chipped. Vortex made good on it, but it was obvious enough it never should have left the factory. If it is ever stolen, it will be replaced with the same model.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Scope, Great Price, Great Warranty Purchasing this scope from B&H is the best deal around! The free Tripod is awesome! The scope is very light and compact; the glass is much better than the price would otherwise reflect. I purchased the neoprene fitted case and a lens cleaning pen for the scope with the free gift card. You won't find a better scope for the money! I have used it on a couple hunting trips and can verify the clarity of the glass. I also have the assurance of a lifetime unconditional warranty, so, I am not afraid to bring it along and use it!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Impressive optics in a compact package This is my first spotting scope I have owned. The Vortex Razor HD 11-33x50mm has worked out quite nicely. Whether using it at the local gun range or high up in the Absaroka/Beartooth mountain range in Montana it has yet to leave me hanging. The optical quality is paramount and is perfect for backpacking due to its compact size. The focus adjustment is simple and quick. My girlfriend ends up using it more than I do when we take it out into the field.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Sooooooo happy!!! Don't be fooled by its size, this spotting scope is amazing to say the least. Very clear all the way up to 33 power. I wanted this for back country hunting and spotting at tactical rifle matches and I am so happy with the weight and performance for the money that this little guys costs!!! If your looking for a light weight reasonable cost spotting scope.... look no further!!!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great compact spotting scope Used the new spotting scope to zero in an FAL at 100 yds and a sporterized M1917 in 300 Win Mag at 200 yds. Excellent clarity in overcast conditions. Very happy so far. Still need to try out the scope while hunting.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent spotting scope Great compact spotting scope. If you are looking for a spotting scope to have in a pack and hike all day this is the one. It's crisp, clear, compact and very light weight. I would recommend this product to anyone.
