Vortex Diamondback HD 16-48x65 Straight Spotting Scope

VT-DS-65S

Glassing out west demands an HD optic, but other systems can’t get you the clarity you need to see a tail twitch in low light, or pick a tine out of dense cover. The redesigned Diamondback® HD spotting scopes have all the horsepower the long-distance hunter needs, and they excel in low light—right when you need it most. We’ve also streamlined the exterior for a sleeker, snag-free profile, building in a helical focus wheel. For the biggest hunt of your year, or your third time out this season, the all-new Diamondback® HD spotters deliver the power to focus on the thrill of your hunt.
