As a professional photographer for 30+ years I have owned and used high end lenses and optic from all of the top manufacturers. I've never used any optics that were a better quality for the money. I'm delighted with my Viper HD 65mm scope and recommend it highly. Using it now in Ecuador.
This is such an improvement over my old scope that it is hard to be objective. Great clarity at near and long distance. Good light transfer. Has already stood up in a great fashion to some tough use/abuse. Focus knobs focus quickly and sharply. See-through case is a challenge to put on.
The image quality is outstanding and it is easy to get a good focus. Only complaint is that the eyepiece covers are loose and fall off easily.
I use it for observing wildlife and digiscoping. I have used 2 diamondbacks, 2 vipers and 1 razor and I prefer the Viper 15-45-65 over the others.
This spotting scope is very clear. I could easily see things at 1 mile. Only drawback is trying to get the scope cover on . Excellent quality as with all vortex products.
The scope is primarily used for birding. It replaces a 60mm scope that is 27-28 years old! The Viper is really bright and is GREAT at zoom! The zoomed subject really holds the focus well without distortion. We stared at a Calico Pennant (dragonfly) laying eggs at least 50 yards away!
I have used the scope long enough to realize it is just ok and really not much better than many scope that are way cheaper!!!!!
I am a professional wildlife biologist, post-secondary educator in applied fish and wildlife biology, avid birder/wildlife photographer, and hunter, so, needless to say, my use of this tool are diverse.
This scope has worked really well to see distant ducks!
I use this scope for birds and spotting whales from my deck it works great
