However versatile the applications of the high-performance spotting scopes from Carl Zeiss may be, the accessories are equally versatile. With their original solutions they can turn a Victory DiaScope spotting scope into a camera, enabling you to capture the events unfolding before your eyes. The adaptor that lets you reach for the stars is just as clever and powerful. The range of accessories is varied and practical, and all the products have been developed to enhance your experiences of the natural world.
The ZEISS carbon fibre or aluminium tripods help you to enjoy maximum stability with optimum flexibility while observing nature. Whether you prefer to sit or stand, simply make yourself comfortable and set the tripod to your preferred height. The new tripod head has a particularly smooth pivoting motion and a precise and secure clamp for holding your spotting scope or binoculars. The quick-change plate means you can quickly switch the different optical devices on your tripod, such as spotting scopes, binoculars and camera. The tripods are available in very lightweight carbon fibre or tried and tested aluminium.
The new carrying case for the Victory DiaScope and the Victory PhotoScope was designed for the reliable protection, optimum carrying comfort and, above all, quick operational readiness of the spotting scope. Particularly in outdoor use and in the most adverse weather conditions, the case offers additional protection from rain and other external influences. Both the eyepiece and lens covers were designed to ensure that they can be securely fastened to the case while you are engaged in observing nature. This prevents them from flapping about in the wind or even getting lost. The clever carrying system means that the spotting scope can be simply hung over your shoulder on longer trips. The carrying cases have been specially designed for the Victory DiaScope models and the Victory PhotoScope.
Record your best observations on video and in photographs. The Quick Camera Adaptor II helps you to change quickly and repeatedly between observing and filming or photographing. The tried and tested connection element between the spotting scope and the video or digital camera allows you to fasten the camera on the side next to the spotting scope while you are observing. When you want to capture a moment on video or in a photograph, simply swivel the camera round in front of the eyepiece and start filming. With its sturdy construction the Quick Camera Adaptor is also perfectly suited for heavy video and digital cameras, enabling you to enjoy shake-free filming.
Turn your ZEISS spotting scope into a super-telephoto lens with a focal length of up to 1,000 mm at a 1:12 relative aperture. Take advantage of the tried and tested ZEISS optics and combine this with the SLR camera of your choice. With the ZEISS photo adaptor and a conventional, matching T2 ring you can connect any digital SLR camera to the ZEISS DiaScopes. This combination is particularly successful for travelling or on long walks. It enables you to photograph your most beautiful nature observations in the usual high quality. By switching between the photo adaptor, which weighs just a few grams, and the ZEISS eyepiece of your choice you can make full use of your spotting scope for nature observations as usual.
Cast your gaze up to the sky to see the rings of Saturn, the moons of Jupiter or the beauty of Venus. With the adaptor for the 1 ¼”Astro eyepieces you can use all the ZEISS Victory DiaScopes for nocturnal star-gazing. It is the perfect way to relax after a day spent observing nature. This coupling ring allows conventional 1 ¼”Astro eyepieces to be mounted on any Victory DiaScope model.
Take advantage of the wide range of eyepieces from Carl Zeiss for your stargazing. Amateur astronomers can benefit from innovations such as the low light T* multi-layer coating or the FL-concept. The Astro adaptor can be used to connect the eyepieces of the spotting scope to an astronomical telescope. The Astro adaptor is available with either a 1 ¼" or a 2" connector.
