Default Just picked up a Vortex Viper HD 15-45x65 Spotting Scope

Boy the image is so nice. Ill mount of camera mount to it soon for some pics, the image is so much nicer. My previous spotter was a cheap 100$ barska.

I have other vortex scopes and a SSHD 5-20x50. Quality is there.
Makes me wonder how much better the Razor HD spotters are.

picked mine up from http://www.opticsplanet.com/vortex-v...UNECh0HSwAAEAI

you can either review something and get 10% off, or request a deal through their chat or email.

I got mine for about 554$



Canon powershot 16.1 megapixels 720P video
approx 85*F here so theres plenty of heat waves. Picture is much sharper though.

Grats, that's a wonderful spotting scope.

I can look through it all day without stressing out my eyes. Using the barska causes my discomfort.

Don't try the Razor HD if to are happy with the Viper... The images are stunningly sharp. Some of the digiscoping images look like they were takin with high dollar camera lenses.

The Razor is amazing! But the HD's are awesome for the price as well.

Nice! Vortex has really good stuff. The razor line is of course their high end which is just about even with fancy euro brands that cost nearly twice as much.
