Rated 5 out of 5 by from Outstanding gear Hunting, observing wildlife, shooting and reading livestock ear tags are all improved with binoculars. This scope is definitely high quality. The weight for a 20-60 x 80 spotter makes it easily carried and set up. Light transmission, focus, and clarity are all outstanding. As a former Forward Observer I appreciate good glass like Vortex. My family has really enjoyed using Vortex glass while observing our livestock and wildlife. After receiving a Diamondback spotting scope as a gift I couldn't wait to try more Vortex products, and I haven't been disappointed. I don't think there are any better optics for the money.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Extremely satisfied! I upgraded all my optics this year to the diamondback series. Being a guide and a hunter in central wyoming, good optics are very import. The diamondback 20-60x80 as gone beyond satisfied my needs. The compact size and weight makes it perfect for my high country packs into the backcountry and the clarity can not be beat. I can see long past any other optics after the sun goes does allowing me to see more of those nocturnal critters. I will be a vortex optics customer for life!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Definitely a great spotting scope. My buddy just picked this scope up before our archery deer season. We spent five days in the backcountry of Colorado chasing monster mulies. I was able to see how this scope performed and it did well the clarity of the optics were great and had no issues with the lenses foging up in the cool early morning hours. I will be investing in these optics for my self. I was berry impressed, and way cheaper then the top of the line optics like leopold or sworavski.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good stuff I put hours on this spotting scope each year looking for moose, caribou, sheep, and bear with some of the worst weather imaginable... this spotter has never fogged up on me despite bouncing around in my ranger and being n knocked over multiple times.. for the money this scope will smoke all that are comparable. After 40x it does get grainy. 60x is almost not even worth having as an option.. fantastic scope for the lower end of the spotting line!!!

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Budget minded equipment Ok for 100 yard shots at a target on the range. Anything more than 20 power is blurry. Definitely not a game spotter. Save up and spend the money required to get the premium optics.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from great spotting scope for a great price! We just bought this scope for our 5th wedding anniversary this year! My husband and I needed a spotting scope in addition to our diamondback binoculars! When glassing for deer we usually spot them through the binoculars and its very handy to be able to zoom in with the scope! We are very satisfied with this purchase as it's a high quality scope for a very reasonable price!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great warranty Love this spotting scope. Way better than the cheaper spotting scope I have. Gathers light twenty mins after the other is hard to see. Carry case is great for keeping scope safe. Lens caps are not attached so can be left behind. Great scope for a great price with a fantastic warranty.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Beginner's Spotting Scope Great for the value. Clarity diminishes quickly at higher magnification, but still usable at 60x. Very happy with the product for the price, does the trick for long-range archery shooting and rifle shooting at moderate range. Large scope, but fairly lightweight.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very Happy with this Spotting Scope This is my first spotting scope and I am very happy with it. I have used it at the gun range and out hunting. I have been very impressed and so has my father. The weight is great on the spotting scope and is much lighter than more expensive versions.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great product After researching several spotting scopes I decided to purchase the DB 20x60x80. It is amazing for the price and warranty that comes with it. Currently in the process from switching all of my optics to Vortex.
