20x60 T* S Image Stabilization Binoculars

The classic specialist for steady observation despite high magnification

Unique mechanics and optical performance

A superlative set of binoculars: for 20 x magnification observation without a tripod. The 20x60 T* S makes this possible due to its technically unique image stabilisation. The unavoidable tremble that makes freehand observation at this extreme magnification impossible is "switched off" at the touch of a button. As a result you experience the same high degree of detail resolution that you would expect from a tripod. Ideal for secure aiming at long-range game.

  • Highlights

    Here you find the top features of the 20x60 T* S binoculars.

    Extreme magnification

    Outstanding detail resolution, even at great distances – freehand and without a tripod. You can achieve this with the 20x60 T* S.

    High-performance optics

    The elaborate lens construction using special glass gives you a brilliant, razor-sharp image.

    Image stabilisation

    The mechanical image stabilisation works securely and noiselessly at the touch of a button and is fully mechanical with no battery power required.

  • Features

    Extreme performance in magnification and lens diameter

    The 20 x magnification provides an outstanding level of detail resolution. You can make out the finest of details when aiming at game and can be secure in your decision to take a shot. Extreme brightness is supplied by the 60 mm lens and Porro prism system.

    High-performance optics

    An elaborate lens construction with special glass gives a brilliant and razor-sharp image, even at 20x magnification. The high light transmission is guaranteed by low light Porro prisms and the elaborate Carl Zeiss T* coating. This enables you to make out details through to the very last of the light.

    Image stabilisation

    The purely mechanical image stabilisation system with its gimbal-mounted spring joint and magnetic damping action works immediately at the touch of a button, noiselessly and without battery power. This results in a unique visual experience, such as you have never seen before - totally free of unavoidable hand tremor.

    Robust mechanics

    The image stabiliser is a mechanical masterpiece and naturally needs protection during harsh use, when idle or during transport. Secure, automatic locking of the moving parts when not in use and the solid, rubber armour of the metal casing serve to protect the internal optics and mechanics.

  • Questions & Answers

    Questions & Answers

    • The 20x60 T* S has an unusually high twilight factor. Does that mean that it is particularly suitable for use in twilight?

      The 20x60 T* S does have a large lens diameter, however its suitability for use in twilight is limited due to the high magnification. A Victory 8x56 T* FL, for example, would be better suited for use in twilight conditions.

      By the way: The twilight factor alone is not an indication of the suitability for use in twilight conditions. A large eye relief and of course - in addition to the purely numerical sizes - the actual performance of binoculars, in terms of image sharpness, transmission and contrast reproduction is more important.

    • What do the abbreviations mean?

      Meaning of the abbreviations

      Binoculars or spotting scopes with glasses that contain fluoride (FL) for sharper, higher contrast images with significantly reduced chromatic aberrations; Fluoride Lenses; a special, high-quality sub-category of the ED lenses

      Previously used to designate Dialyt binoculars with rubber armour

      ZEISS T* multi-layer coating for extremely high transmission and low reflex susceptibility

      ZEISS multi-layer coating (multi coating)

      P / P*   
      Phase correction coating on the roof prisms, which provide a higher resolution of the finest detail structures. All ZEISS binoculars with roof prisms use this coating

      Previously used to designate binoculars that can be worn by people who wear glasses.
      Now all ZEISS binoculars and spotting scope eyepieces are suitable for people who wear glasses, so the "B" designation is no longer used

      Binoculars with mechanical image stabilisation

      Riflescope models with ZEISS mounting rail.

      Riflescope with illumination control

      Extra low Dispersion = low chromatic aberrations

      High Definition. HD is not a type of lens. Instead it describes the result of the ED lenses: very good resolution

      High Transmission = lenses by SCHOTT with very good transmission properties.


      Smart Focus = Conventional binoculars require the focusing wheel to be turned 2.5 times in order to switch from the close focus to the maximum observation distance. The VICTORY SF only requires the wheel to be turned 1.8 times.
