About Vortex Optics 20-60x85 Spotting Scope

The Vortex Razor HD 20-60x85 Spotting Scope pushes the performance barrier to the highest limits, delivering a level of optical quality, resolution and color fidelity. The Razor HD features a sophisticated triple apochromatic lens system with two elements, precision-ground from high-definition (HD) optical glass. The result is an almost total elimination of chromatic aberration across the entire field of view so there's no "fringing", degradation of resolution, or dilution of color fidelity at longer viewing distances.

Vortex Optics 20-60x85 Spotting Scope Features

  • ArmorTek is a new, chemically-bonded optical lens multi-coat that increases light transmission, color fidelity and image resolution - while providing unprecedented protection for the lens surface with a proprietary fluorine compound which is ultra-hard and highly scratch-resistant.
  • ArmorTek's unique strain-proof top coat features a slippery surface that actually repels the oil and corrosive salts of fingerprints. Dust, dirt and smudges are all easily wiped away without fear of scratching the optical glass beneath.
  • XD (Xtra-low Dispersion) glass objective lens elements of extra-low dispersion glass enhance image resolution - carefully selected and precision-crafted to exacting standards for true-to-life images of startling clarity and color accuracy.
  • XR coatings deliver incredible image detail with extremely high resolution and light transmission. Fully multi-coated, scratch-resistant coatings eliminate annoying, image-degrading reflections and offer extraordinary brightness for a lifetime of trouble-free lens protection.
  • XD Optical Design is an advanced optical element configuration that virtually eliminates aberrations and provides distortion-free, flat field images with unmatched edge-to-edge accuracy and detail.
  • Argon gas eliminates internal fogging.
  • Argon gas maintains its protective properties over a wider temperature range.
  • The compact Razor HD body, made of die-cast of magnesium-alloy, is shockproof.
  • The angled eyepiece and rotating tripod ring allow greater flexibility when positioning the Razor; a dual focus provides both coarse and fine adjustments for fast and precise focusing.

I was torn between buying this scope and the Celestron 100mm FD Regal so I bought both. The Vortex has been highly regarded and cost more than 2 times the price of the Celestron so I was expecting its performance to be significantly better than the Vortex. In a nutshell I was extremely disappointed with the Vortex. It looked good with low magnification but past 30X it did not focus sharply. Much to my surprise the Celestron Regal blew the Vortex away. The Celestron had significantly superior sharpness and focus at higher magnification. The Celestron is also much more versatile in that you can use 1.25" eyepieces as well as Barlows. Yes the Celestron is larger and weighs more but this is no issue as all scopes should be mounted on a sturdy tripod. The build quality on the Celestron was very good. I have not tried other high end scopes out there but after using the over hyped Vortex I am convinced that the Celestron Regal offers without a doubt the best bang and versatility for the buck in spotting scopes period.
