Rated 5 out of 5 by from This is a great starter spotting scope. I bought this spotter for back packing. It is lightweight at a little over 3 pounds. It is very clear to look through much better than my old spotter and with my phone adapter takes great pictures through it. Very pleased with this spotter and look forward to buying another soon.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great scope I've used this spotting scope in the field for a number of hunts and scouting trips. I've been extremely pleased with the clarity and brightness, even in low light conditions at dawn while looking for elk and deer. It's rugged and easy to use and a great value.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Worth every penny. Bought my Diamondback 20-60x60 Straight spotting scope over a year ago. I am not an impulse buyer so I looked long and hard to get the most for my money. Extremely pleased with the Vortex spotter. Quality glass and American made.

You can get the adapter from www.phoneskope.com, you will need the case that fits your phone and the adapter that fits the spotting scope which is the C3-VD60.

With a 3-1mm exit pupil diameter, is this spotting scope even usable in low light conditions? If so, at approximately what magnification could it be effectively utilized near dawn or dusk? Thanks!

Asked by: Thomas
At low magnifications you will get the best performance in low light, if you are looking for better low light performance our Viper HD and Razor HD models will do better because of the optical quality.

What are the pros / cons of a straight eyepiece spotting scope vs an angled one? Is it simply a matter of preference or are there differences in clarity, light gathering ability, ease of viewing and other, optical-related considerations? Thanks!

Asked by: Thomas
Optically there is no difference, choosing straight or angled is all personal preference.
