Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great value This spotting scope is simply amazing! The glass is on par with other companies offerings costing hundreds more. It is very bright and clear in low light conditions. The focus adjusting knob is buttery smooth to dial it in to perfect focus. I use it mainly in long range shooting-spotting hits and misses. Also use it for scouting wildlife ranging from prairie dogs to deer. With Vortex’s VIP warranty, I don’t see how this could be any better of an investment.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fantastic. This spotting scope is awesome. The quality and capability it offers at this price point is outstanding. Makes picking out speed goats in the sagebrush hills of Wyoming a piece of cake. I'm pleased with the way it deals with mirage. The scope bounces around in my truck every day and I've never had an issue. It's always in easy reach and is my go to optic for getting a closer look. I highly recommend it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome spotting scope! I bought this last summer and have used it a lot! I LOVE THIS SCOPE! It’s compact, tough, and extremely clear glass! The focus is quick when switching target, and the resolution is outstanding! It’s my opinion that no other spotting scope on the market can come close to this one at any price... I’ve used high end scopes, Swarovski and Leica... to name a couple, and the Vortex is just as good or better for a fraction the price.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The more I use it the happier I am I bought this spotting scope last hunting season and the more I use it the happier I am that I made this decision. It’s just fantastic in all aspects. I looked at more expensive scopes and they just didn’t have anything this one didn’t. Quality, clarity and of course the amazing warranty. Very very happy!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fantastic Value I recently upgraded my old Vortex Nomad spotting scope to the new Vortex Viper HD 15-45. This scope is very bright with no loss of resolution at max magnification. The helical focusing ring is a great feature that allows quick and precise focusing.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Crystal clear I have used this spotting scope on 3 hunts now, glassing long ranges in AZ. Clarity is amazing and I’ve been able to take amazing photos and videos using an adapter for my iPhone. This quality paired with the VIP warranty makes this a no brainer.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from My last spotting scope! Love this thing! Barring me dropping it down a mountain cliff and losing it, this should be the last spotting scope I'll ever need. Compact (enough), clear, quick adjustments and the power and objective suit my needs perfectly.
