Zoom in on the natural side of wildlife

Now you can move in on the drama of deer grazing in a distant marsh with optics that respond to your call for high quality images. The Nomad spotting scope brings great color and clarity to every scene with comfortable full field views, even if you wear eyeglasses.

 

  • Fully multi-coated optics make every scene brighter and more detailed.
  • BaK-4 high density glass prisms deliver sharp views from one edge of the field to the other.
  • Contemporary eyecup design makes the most of long eye relief for wide angled views, available to every user by simply retracting the multi-stop eyecup to the most pleasing position.

    The Nomad spotting scope has a slim, lightweight profile that is perfectly suited for travel and long hikes in the field. When you're far from shelter, you'll be ready for driving rains and wet, heavy snow showers with the Nomad. Solid construction forms the basis for a lifetime of rewards as you head outdoors with this highly portable spotting scope.
  • Waterproof housing provides complete protection from rain, sleet and snow because of tight O-ring seals.
  • Nitrogen purging prevents condensation on internal lenses so you enjoy clear views in spite of sudden temperature changes.
  • Polycarbonate body housing is rugged and easy to carry.
  • Rubber armor enhances durability for sure travel through rough terrain.

 

How to choose between straight and angled eyepiece positions
Start out by thinking about how you are going to use your spotting scope and take hold of any opportunity to compare straight and angled scopes side by side. Although you will get used to handling whatever style you choose, consider the advantages of each eyepiece position.

 

Straight eyepieces
The straight eyepiece position of the Nomad spotting scope works well when viewing downward from an elevated platform. The more natural line of sight of the straight eyepiece is favored by many novice users trying to follow wildlife on the move.

 

Angled eyepieces
The angled eyepiece position is a favorite among hunters who spend much of their time scanning higher elevations for wildlife, or scoping while lying prone on the ground. In other words, the angled eyepiece is ideal for people who often view upward from a lower vantage point. And, if you tend to share your scope with others, you'll find the angled eyepiece position of the Nomad spotting scope readily accommodates users of many different heights with less adjusting of the tripod.

 

Accessories for the Nomad 20-60x60 spotting scope
Digiscoping with the Nomad spotting scope is made all the easier with the Radian Small Universal Digital Camera Adapter (sold separately). The Vortex Nomad comes with a 20-60x zoom eyepiece and a view-through case that protects the Nomad spotting scope as you watch wildlife, zipping up quickly for total protection when you pack up for the evening.

        I have vortex optics on my guns and I use there binoculars. I even had a friend recently purchase the razor spotting scope which is absolutely impressive. This model just doesn't focus out to the distances needed.

          Comments about Vortex 20-60x60 Nomad Spotting Scope:

          I would be satisified if this scope would have cost $650. Optics are clear all the way to the edges at all magnifications. The large 60mm objective lens diameter gives a very bright, crisp image. I love this.

            Comments about Vortex 20-60x60 Nomad Spotting Scope:

            My first order with Hayneedle. Great price on this optic. Vortex was right, this is a very light optic and I am very happy with it. Delivery was timely and went off without a hitch. I did have to use the tripod mount for my camera so you might want to add that as a possible recommended accessory. My tripod is very good so future buyers may want to know that. I got the Zumba lens pen because it was recommended...just sayin'. Thanks!

              Comments about Vortex 20-60x60 Nomad Spotting Scope:

              I am a 3 - 400-yard-shooter with a new .223 cal. AR-15 rifle I built. We shoot self-loaded ammo and test different powder levels and bullet weightss at 3 - 400 yard distances. This requires a prety good spotting scope to be able to see small bullet holes at this distance. Given our limited budget for a scope, our new Vortex so far is doing the job. Specifically, I can zoom to 60X and fine tune a sharp focus to see small holes in a splatter target at 350 yards. The scope is mounted on a table top Vortex tripod which is stable and steady. We had pretty much given up on finding a 60" tripod that would work until we hit on the shorter Vortex unit. Now we have a great budget-wise Vortex scope and tripod package. It is PERFECT!
