Vortex Diamondback 20-60x60 Spotting Scope - The Diamondback optics guarantee a bright image throughout the magnification range and, as true to all Diamondback optics, the rugged construction stands up to rough use in the field. Multi-layer coatings provide the clearest, brightest, most color-accurate images possible. Vortex proprietary XR anti-reflective coatings, fully multi-coated on all air-to-glass lens surfaces, increase light transmission for maximum brightness. The angled body design is valued for allowing an overall lower mounting height which maximizes stability in wind, offers greater comfort when glassing for extended periods, and permits the use of a smaller, lighter tripod. Nitrogen gas purging delivers fogproof, waterproof performance.

  • Magnification: 20-60x
  • Objective Lens Diameter: 60mm
  • Linear Field of View: 105-51 feet at 1000 yards
  • Angular Field Of View: 2.2 - 1 degrees
  • Close Focus: 20 feet
  • Eye Relief: 14 - 17 mm
  • Exit Pupil: 3 - 1 mm
  • Weight: 33.8 ounces

    This spotting scope is just great. I purchased it before a NM deer/elk season and it upped my glassing game 100%. The lightweight compact size worked great for backpacking in and looking for game. On top of that, Vortex warranty is top notch. One week after purchasing the zoom seized up and I sent it in to warranty and within a week I had the scope back. The products and the company are great. Keep up the good work.

    I originally purchased this model only to find that out of the box it was defective. Counting on the VIP warranty I sent it to vortex for service. Two weeks later I received the return fed ex package from vortex. The invoice said the one I sent back could not be repaired so they replaced it "with the current model". This "current model" is worse than what I sent back. While the image is fairly clear and the controls feel smooth, the field of view does not increase with a decrease in magnification like it should. On full power the image fills the lens. As the power is reduced, it is like looking down binoculars backwards. The original model I purchased did not do this! New ones in the stores do not do this! I had purchased the first one three weeks ago and got sent back the "current model", yet it is clearly the older model than the first one I sent in.

    Not feeling like a VIP vortex! Two defective spotting scopes in a row, and now I will not have a spotting scope for my hunt in a week which is why I bought it in the first place. Not what I expected from a company like vortex. I will send it back in again and hope I get a working product. Based on my experience so far, I cannot recommend this product or vortex . Look elsewhere.

    Comments about Vortex Optics Vortex Diamondback 20-60x60 Spotting Scope:

    I was looking to upgrade my backpacking spotting scope and it came down to the Vortex Diamondback vs. the Leupold SX-1 Ventana. Inside the store, they were pretty even. I came back on a drizzly evening near dusk and got to take them outside to compare. I looked through the Diamondback and quickly picked up a crisp image of small pin flag about 400 yards away. I looked through the SX-1, and I couldn't even find the flag! I switched back to the Diamondback, and I found several more flags even further away. I was blown away by the difference in clarity under low light conditions. Hands down the Vortex was the better option. I've used the Diamondback on several scouting and hunting trips, and I couldn't be happier. Hard to beat the quality, weight, and price. Warranty is reassuring too.

    Comments about Vortex Optics Vortex Diamondback 20-60x60 Spotting Scope:

    I use this for hunting and spotting, rain and snow. It works in sub-zero and above. Fits great in my pack and goes everywhere with me. When the family is in shopping I'm outside looking for critters in the hills. I can't think of anything I don't like about it.

    Comments about Vortex Optics Vortex Diamondback 20-60x60 Spotting Scope:

    I love this spotting scope it gets the job done. It is a very durable product and performs well with other top of the line spotting scopes. The best part about this spotting scope is the price point. The only negative is the magnification knob is stiff. Other then that this product has served me well out in the field.

    This spotting scope is by far the best spotting scope I have used. Took it to Wyoming on a mule deer hunt along with my phoneskope. Not only did we get to view the deer, we video recorded them as well.

    Great glass, great price

    Comments about Vortex Optics Vortex Diamondback 20-60x60 Spotting Scope:

    I live and hunt in Alaska. Having a good spring scope is a must when hunting dal sheep and this one delivers. It has saved me miles of hiking being able to see that a ram is sub legal from a long ways out. Also I know from experience the warranty is second to none. My buddies vortex spotting scope broke a week before we were going on our sheep hunt. He shipped it next day to vortex on Monday and had it back in his hands fixed on Thursday. This was a hunt saver.

    Comments about Vortex Optics Vortex Diamondback 20-60x60 Spotting Scope:

    Not a ton of experience looking through several thousand dollar spotting scopes, but I absolutely love the clarity and image these offer. For a starter/entry level spotting scope these have done really well for me at the range out to 200-300 yards. Even being able to see a 17 HMR whole on the target at 200yds. Maybe a little heavy for backcountry use, but I am going to put it to a test this September.

    Great customer service

    Comments about Vortex Optics Vortex Diamondback 20-60x60 Spotting Scope:

    I purchased my spotting scope for the 2016 deer and elk season in Montana. I based this on hunting with some friends of mine in the 2015 season who brought along a vortex spotting scope. I was impressed with the clarity and ease of use and decided to buy one of my own. I ended up buying the vortex diamondback angled scope. Upon initial use, I was reassured my purchase was a good one with my initial use. Great clarity, ease of use. The angled shape took some getting used. I was used to "line of sight" optics, so finding my target was harder with this design. When the sun was at a lower angle in the sky (sunrise/sunset) I had some difficultly with the scope picture washing out. When I shaded the front with my hand, it resolved the issue, so a shade extension addition may help eliminate this issue. I also had some problems with the scope. After several uses, the eye piece cover started to unscrew the eye piece from the main body of the scope, exposing the inner works of the scope. I notified vortex of the problem. Through a great warranty and phenomenal customer service I was able to ship the scope back and get it fixed and returned in a prompt and professional manner. So far my vortex diamondback scope is performing to my expectations and I look forward to using it in the 2017 hunting season.

    Awesome glass for the price

    Comments about Vortex Optics Vortex Diamondback 20-60x60 Spotting Scope:

    This is the best glass for the price point hands down. Great clarity at 20x and LOTS of light. Higher magnifications can become dark but still amazing glass. Highly recommend for a first Spotter.
