Unprecedented perfection when observing nature
Do you want to see birds, animals and nature as close up as possible? The Victory DiaScope will bring you a degree of perfection in your observation of nature that you have never experienced before. Whether you are birdwatching for pleasure or monitoring wildlife for scientific purposes, experience fascinating distance vision with the outstanding field of view and get closer to every detail than ever before with magnification of up to 75 x. At the same time, this spotting scope offers perfect ergonomic design: The innovative, quick and precise focus setting with a single focussing wheel means that you can follow a passing bird at speed in coarse mode or focus on slower or resting animals in fine mode – so that nothing will escape you, no matter how far away it is.
This high-performance spotting scope can be used for many different applications. Near or far, for spotting animals or other objects of natural beauty, the assortment of eyepieces with varying degrees of magnification means that the possibilities are endless. Use the small magnifications with their particularly bright and wide field of view to capture birds in flocks or well hidden animals in rough terrain quickly. Or let the new Vario eyepiece with up to 75x magnification on the Victory DiaScope 85 T* FL inspire you with even the tiniest details during your observation. For the most flexible nature experience we offer you the choice of three different eyepieces for the Victory Diascope.
Rapid and precise focussing
Thanks to the DSF (Dual Speed Focus) system
Perfect focussing for your every need: the Dual Speed Focus combines two focussing speeds in one operating knob. If you turn the operating knob quickly the system operates in coarse mode and the range is quickly adjusted to the appropriate distance. A slower, more precise hand movement switches the system into fine mode, when you can adjust the image sharpness with accuracy and precision. This focussing function adjusts intuitively to suit your requirements. Dual Speed Focus is an innovation from Carl Zeiss.
Light giant or compact classic?
Continue your fascinating observation into the deepest twilight hours. The Victory DiaScope 85 T* FL is in a class of its own when it comes to image brightness! Whether you are watching owls in the twilight or animals waking up in the early hours of the morning, even in the poorest light conditions the Victory DiaScope 85 T* FL offers impressively bright images and clear colours.
On the other hand, the Victory DiaScope 65 T* FL is small and compact. Lightweight and extremely handy, and makes the perfect companion for nature observation on walking or cycling trips.
Brilliant FL concept
Full brilliance, down to the very last detail: that is the promise of the FL concept. This is all due to the outstanding lens construction, consisting of multiple lenses made of high-performance fluoride glass – FL for short. Whether you are marvelling at the plumage of a bird or butterflies in the tree tops, experience the whole spectrum of colour and brilliance in your observations of nature. Enjoy the fascination of the Victory DiaScope with its brilliant colour reproduction and unrivalled image brightness. With the Victory DiaScope even the smallest details of plumage can be seen pin sharp and with no chromatic aberrations.
Scratchproof, robust and silent
The rubber armour covering the Victory DiaScope is not just highly scratchproof and robust, but also offers ideal protection for the Victory DiaScope in any weather. The waterproof housing protects the precision optics in case of rain while the non-slip surface makes it pleasant to hold even in cold, stormy weather. You can use this high-performance spotting scope wherever you want, as it will withstand the harshest conditions. The rubber armour helps the surface to absorb virtually all sound while the black colour prevents light reflection that could give away your position when observing birds and animals.
Safe from accidental falls
The eyepiece safety catch prevents it from accidentally falling out. Once the eyepiece has been inserted in the spotting scope, the eyepiece safety catch ensures that the Victory DiaScope and the eyepiece interlock. This means it is impossible to separate the two items by accident. Simply press the release button and you will be able to remove the eyepiece from the Victory DiaScope quickly and easily.
LotuTec® – protective coating for clear visibility
Water simply rolls off the lens as it does from a lotus leaf or off a duck's back. The LotuTec® coating on the lens and eyepiece ensures that water or snow simply roll off the surface of the glass. Since neither water nor dirt can collect on the surface of the Victory DiaScope you can spend less time cleaning and more time watching nature.
Low light capability thanks to Carl Zeiss T* multi-layer coating
Each lens in a Victory DiaScope is covered with an elaborate, special coating, which increases the light transmission. Thanks to the constantly improved formula of the Carl Zeiss T* multi-layer coating you can enjoy bright, high-contrast images. The Victory Diascope is therefore perfectly suited for use in adverse light conditions.
Viewing enjoyment without reflection
The Advanced Stray light Reduction System
Enjoy unlimited viewing enjoyment from sunrise, through the midday sun and on into the sunset. Based on a perfectly balanced combination of stray light baffles and lens coating, Carl Zeiss has developed a technology that effectively dispenses with the drop in contrast caused by stray light. This means that even in difficult backlighting situations you can enjoy the outstanding imaging performance of the Victory DiaScope.
The ZEISS Victory DiaScope 85 T* FL won the Product Design category of the coveted "red dot design awards".
"All products that have won the red dot design award have had to convince an international jury of their merit. These products stand out from the crowd as a result of their outstanding design and innovative features and have therefore been able to prove their quality in one of the world's hardest design competitions," commented design expert Professor Dr. Peter Zec, the initiator of the red dot design award.
