Superior Optics

Viper HD 20-60x85 Spotting Scope lenses are multi-coated with XR Plus anti-reflection coatings on all air-to-glass surfaces for maximum light transmission and minimum glare. The HD lenses combine with the APO system for higher color contrast, sharper images, and superior light transmission. Lenses with Dielectric Reflective Multilayer Coating provide critical low light performance by enhancing light transmission for more game-spotting opportunities. Plasma technology provides a cutting edge coating application process for unparalleled coating durability and performance. The Viper HD Spotting Scope contains a porro prism design with an 85mm objective lens that has a 20-60x magnification.

Durable Build

The Viper HD is built in an angled body design that allows for an overall lower mounting height. This maximizes stability in wind and gives you better comfort when in use over long periods. The porro prism design gives you maximum image quality and superior performance. ArmorTek exterior coating protects against scratches, oil, and dirt. O-ring seals prevent moisture and debris from penetrating the body. Argon gas purging prevents internal fogging. The waterproof, dustproof, and shockproof body is housed in a compact size while delivering an extremely wide field of view so that you never miss a detail.

Convenience

Viper HD 20-60x85 Spotting Scopes feature adjustable eyecups that you can twist up and down for precise setting that maximizes your comfort. Helical Focus allows for fast and fine adjustments. A built-in sunshade significantly reduces glare and shields the objective lens from rain and snow. A rotating tripod ring provides adjustable viewing angles.

Vortex Ridgeview Carbon Fiber Tripod with 2-Way Pan Head

Vortex Ridgeview Carbon Fiber Tripod with 2-Way Pan Head

The Vortex Ridgeview Carbon Fiber Tripod with 2-Way Pan Head raises your long-range tools to new heights without sacrificing stability or strength. One of the tallest tripods from Vortex, the Ridgeview Carbon is perfect for stand-up glassing, and it’s built on a carbon frame for higher performance at higher heights. Adjustments are smooth and precise, thanks to a 2-way Pan Head. Plus, you can quickly switch out your long-range tools with the Arca-Swiss compatible quick-release system. When you need stability and strength you can stand behind, put Ridgeview Carbon in your pack.

Carbon Fiber Leg Construction

The carbon fiber construction of the legs makes them very lightweight and extremely durable. The legs also feature a variety of adjustability options, depending on your use of the tripod. The low-profile quarter-turn twist-lock legs at the bottom of the tripod allow you to adjust the height of the tripod, in 3 sections. Allowing for multiple heights and a secure setup. The bottoms of the tripod legs are rubberized non-slip grip, so they have a firm grip on the ground surface where it is placed.

Three-angle leg pivot locks and Counterweight hook

At the top of the tripod, there is a 3-angle leg pivot that allows you to adjust the angle the legs are placed. At the center of the tripod is a counterweight hook which allows you to attach a weight to it. Doing so will lower the Ridgeview carbon's center of gravity while increasing its stability in windy conditions. The counterweight hook is also removable, so you can angle your tripod closer to the ground.

2-Way Adjustable Pan Head (with Panhandle)

This pan head will allow you to have control of a full range of motion. Easily unlock, change your position and lock it in place.

Quick-Release Plate with 1/4"-20 Thread

The quick-release plate allows you to attach different spotting scope bodies, binocular adapters, and accessories that have the same 1/4-inch - 20 thread pattern. Removing it will reveal the Arca-Swiss mount, which will you be able to attach other compatible accessories.

Load Capacity and Specs

The tripod head can hold a capacity of 22 pounds and is interchangeable with an optional vortex accessory head that is perfect for leveling.
