Description

Vortex 80mm Skyline Spotting Scope

 

In the grey light of early dawn, the distant bull elk fades into the trees. Is he worth chasing after, or not? Only the Skyline can tell! This 80mm spotting scope grasps all the light you need to pull fine details out of hazy scenes and shadowy woodlands in dim light. Even at longer ranges, the Skyline will impress you with natural colors throughout the 20-60x eyepiece perfect for high quality, long distance viewing.

 

  • Distinctive Broadband coatings reduce surface reflections for the most impressive images at high magnifications.
  • Fully multi-coated optics increase the amount of light passing through the scope for even brighter, more detailed views.
    The Skyline is an amazing scope for those hours when wildlife is especially active as state-of-the art technology works to deliver exceptional contrast and crystal clear images in the most challenging viewing situations.


 

Exceptional image quality from 20-60x

 

Watching animals from a distance is easy with the Skyline spotting scope's powerful zoom eyepiece. This versatile 20-60x eyepiece lets you take in whole scenes or zoom in to study fine details such as antler counts! Designed for comfort, even with eyeglasses, all you do is twist back the eyecup for pleasing, wide-field viewing.


 

Rugged construction you can count on

 

The premium optics of the Skyline spotting scope are well protected for long years of satisfaction. Enclosed in a robust and rugged housing, you'll be ready for any kind of weather or terrain imaginable with this dependable scope.

 

  • Complete waterproofing against the effects of dust, rain, sleet, and snow on the optics is certain due to tight O-ring seals.
  • Clear fogproof viewing in sudden temperature changes is a reality because the nitrogen purged optics prevent internal fogging of the lenses.
      

 

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. Though 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 Skyline spotting scope works well when viewing downward from an elevated platform, such as a deck or patio. 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 Skyline spotting scope readily accommodates users of many different heights with less adjusting of the tripod.
 

Accessories for the Skyline 20-60x80 spotting scope

The Skyline works well for digiscoping, and accepts the Radian Large Digital Camera Adapter bracket (sold separately). A view-through case protects the Skyline spotting scope at all times, and when you're done viewing, add the ocular and objective lens covers and zip up the case. The Skyline also features a tripod mounting collar that lets you rotate the scope body to virtually any angle you prefer on its table-top tripod and is especially useful for viewing with car window mounts.

    I use my spotting scope for long range shooting. I specifically purchased this scope for scouting Elk, Deer, and Antelope. The Micro focus is very nice in the field. The game have no idea that I am there. I love it.
