With the completely new Victory DiaScope line and a new Vario eyepiece with up to 75x magnification, Carl Zeiss enables unprecedented perfection in nature and wildlife observation.
The flexibility of the new Vario eyepiece with extended zoom range will impress even the most ambitious hunters. The FL concept ensures unparalleled brightness and brilliance. The innovative new focusing system with rough and fine adjustment via a single focusing wheel sets new standards in operating convenience. The new Victory DiaScope generation defines a new class of high-performance spotting scopes with an outstanding range of applications.
The Victory DiaScope line—
four spotting scope models
The Victory DiaScope line comprises four spotting scopes and impresses through its wide range of applications. Both the extremely compact 65 T* FL model and the particularly fast 85 T* FL model are available in straight or angled versions. All application possibilities—from observing game in the lowlands and in the mountains to digiscoping —are thus opened to passionate hunters. The lightweight 65 T* FL is designed for rugged use in mountains and on hunting trips where small pack sizes and low equipment weight are required. Thanks to the large lens diameter, the high- performance 85 T* FL offers optical excellence and maximum light intensity: ideal for demanding hunters who need to recognize minute details at long range when hunting game.
The innovative Dual Speed Focus (DSF)
The Dual Speed Focus (DSF) system, a Carl Zeiss innovation, enables faster and easier focusing of the new spotting scopes, thus generating additional benefits for hunters: the rough and fine focus are controlled via one focusing wheel—without changing your grip. Switching between the fast, rough focus and the precise fine focus is controlled by the rotation of the wheel. To move from a close-up to a faraway object, Dual Speed Focus automatically switches to the fast, rough focus after a quick rotation: the faraway object gradually comes into focus. By rotating the wheel in the opposite direction, the fine focus is automatically activated and the user can precisely focus the image. DSF offers maximum operating convenience thanks to intelligent technology from Carl Zeiss.
The Victory DiaScope design
The state-of-the-art light metal housing of the Victory DiaScope models is particularly robust and very light. Combined with the high-quality rubber armoring, it offers an outstanding feel and noiseless operation. The eyepiece lock ensures that the eyepieces stay reliably in place and can be quickly changed at the push of a button.
The perfect zoom for outdoors—
the new Vario eyepiece
In addition to the 3x zoom Vario eyepiece (15-45x or 20-60x) and a wide-angle eyepiece (30/40x), Carl Zeiss also offers an innovative, fully recalculated Vario eyepiece with a 3.75x zoom (15-56x and 20-75x) with unique features. Thanks to the expanded zoom range, high maximum magnification and the large field of view, the new Victory DiaScope generation has an outstanding position on the market for high-quality optics and clearly separates itself from all other spotting scopes.
The possibility of using a spotting scope with a Vario eyepiece to switch between a particularly large field of view at low magnification and uniquely high detail recognition at maximum magnification provides hunters with completely new options for unforgettable observations. It zooms into nature and unveils many well-kept secrets. Thanks to the large lens diameter of 85 mm and the FL elements in the lens, the image seen through a DiaScope 85 T* FL at 20x magnification is just as bright as that of 10x42 binoculars. The somewhat lower starting magnification enables the DiaScope 65 T* FL to also achieve this outstanding performance at 15x magnification.
Maximum optical performance—
the FL concept
The use of glass containing fluoride with abnormal partial dispersion in the achromatic lenses comprising up to five lens elements, enables all new DiaScope models to deliver maximum contrast even in difficult light. Excellent imaging is guaranteed and color fringes are reduced to a minimum even at high magnification in bright sunlight.
Thanks to their high transmission, FL optics are clearly more brilliant even under diffused light conditions. Absolute top performance regarding contrast, focus, details, and image brightness is a given.
LotuTecŪ and Advanced Stray Light Reduction System
This innovative protective coating on the lens elements ensures that water beads off the surface immediately without residue. Compared to competitors’ products, LotuTecŪ displays favorable physical properties and therefore sets a new standard: thanks to the very large contact angle with the glass surface, the water droplets practically retain their spherical shape—and simply bead off the surface. Thanks to LotuTecŪ, dirt, grease and fingerprints can be quickly and easily removed. LotuTecŪ therefore greatly enhances the functional value of the Victory DiaScope models in tough hunting conditions. This invention from Carl Zeiss has already proven very successful on binoculars, riflescopes, and eyeglass lenses a million times over.
The Advanced Stray Light Reduction System, a technology developed by Carl Zeiss to avoid annoying reflections, suppresses contrast-reducing stray light and guarantees outstanding imaging even in difficult glare situations.
With the new Victory DiaScope models, Carl Zeiss has created high-performance spotting scopes with outstanding optical properties and a wide range of innovative, mechanical solutions. Technologically leading, they are clearly the most powerful products on the market in combination with the new Vario eyepiece. Perfect down to the last detail, they feature a particularly successful design and are extremely lightweight and compact—in short, the first choice for demanding hunters.
Victory DiaScope accessories
The new aluminum tripod ensures maximum stability and flexibility. It can be used with all spotting scopes from Carl Zeiss and most binoculars. The new tripod head enables particularly smooth panning and also features a precise and reliable mount. It comes standard with a movable quick-release plate.
The new carrying cases for the Victory DiaScope models feature noiseless quick-release fasteners, offer outstanding protection for the spotting scope and ensure that the spotting scopes can be accessed quickly.
