Vortex DIAMONDBACK® HD 20-60X85 Spotting Scope
Launched in August 2020, the new Diamondback HD spotting scopes have been completely redesigned to take on the "family look" of the Viper HD and Razor HD 'scopes and optically upgraded to feature HD glass and bigger objective lenses for improved clarity and brightness of the image. A helical/barrel focus wheel allows for a sleeker design and a more rugged construction and new zoom eyepieces give a notable increase of up to 20% field of view with their respective 16-48x zoom on the new 65mm HD models and 20-60x zoom on the new 85mm HD models. The new rugged aluminium chassis has all-over full-body protective rubber armouring and the scopes have Argon gas purging to prevent internal fogging and are fully waterproof. The external lenses have Armortek hardened coatings and all feature a builtin sunshade and rotating tripod mount. All of the new Diamondback HD scopes come complete with protective eyepiece and objective lens covers, a Neoprene Stay-on-Scope case and are of course covered by the Vortex Unlimited Lifetime Warranty

Optics are sealed with O-rings to prevent moisture, dust, and debris from getting inside the spotting scope.
Argon gas purging guarantees superior fogproof and waterproof performance.
Exterior lenses are protected by ArmorTek — an ultrahard, scratch-resistant compound that repels oil, dirt and the corrosive salts of fingerprints.
The all-over rubber armouring protects the exterior of your scope.
Twists up and down to precise 'click-stop' settings for comfortable viewing with or without spectacles.
Helical / Barrel Focus:
New Dual geared focus system allows for fast yet precise adjustments.
Reduces glare and shields the objective lens from raindrops and snow.

Allows rotation of the eyepiece to a sideways position—most useful for viewing through an angled spotting scope body on a car window mount.
We will buy or part-exchange your cameras, lenses, accessories, spotting scopes and binoculars.
We are able to give you a rough price - however we will need to see your gear to give you a final price.
The market fluctuates rapidly and there are a number of considerations we have to make when purchasing equipment from our customers. Our prices undoubtedly are less than you would get if you were to sell privately. The reason for this is, when we sell them to a customer we have to provide a warranty - and with growing costs for repairs this has to be a key consideration.
We’ll always offer as fair a deal as possible and are happy to negotiate or in some instances offer a commission sales basis.
