  • Reticles

    Reticles

    In the VICTORY HT range, innovative riflescopes meet equally innovative reticles. The finest illuminated dot in the world is located on the 2nd image plane of all versions. This ensures that you can rely on a constant, fine reticle across the whole magnification range and you are able to change the magnification at any time. Whether you are involved in a driven hunt, deerstalking, stand hunting or shooting at long range, you can be sure to enjoy greater accuracy.

     

    Reticle 54

    illuminated

    The new fast acquisiton Reticle 54 for the 1.1-4x24 VICTORY HT model is another specialist reticle from Carl Zeiss. It is designed for rapid and secure aiming with minimum target coverage. Along with the fine horizontal hairs it also has a cross with an ultrafine illuminated dot. The horizontal line acts as a height corrector when swinging the gun and prevents the rifle from tilting. The cross makes it possible to take aim quickly and to acquire the target even without using the illuminated dot. You will see just how fine the illuminated dot on the new VICTORY HT models is when you view the minimal amount of target coverage: at 12 x magnification just 0.55 cm is covered at 100 m. This makes it the finest and brightest illuminated dot in the world, and a true benchmark.

     

    Reticle 60

    illuminated

    The Reticle 60 is lighter and finer in looks than the similar Reticle 40. The posts only cover half­ the area, leaving double the amount of space between them. This makes it perfect for precision shooting with minimum coverage of the target game. At 12 x magnification and a target coverage of just 0.55 cm at 100 m you keep a good overview without losing sight of the finer details. The illuminated dot is very bright, and can therefore be used for daytime hunting. The dot can be finely adjusted, which makes it ideal for night-time hunting too. The reticle is either in the 1st or 2nd image plane, depending on the riflescope.

    ZEISS Flip-Cover

    for VICTORY V8 1.8–14x50 / 2.8–20x56 and VICTORY HT 2.5–10x50 / 3–12x56

To guarantee that this is the case, ZEISS has now developed the new flip covers. The new riflescope flip covers perfectly protect the lens in any weather. The high-quality lens cap is screwed onto the lens filter thread and can be locked in any position, making it ideal for both left and right-handed shooters. The new ZEISS flip cover is precisely tailored to the requirements of hunting and will impress you with its long service life. During a hunt, the flip cover can be operated reliably, quickly and quietly. The field of view is in no way impaired by the flip cover.

  • Questions & Answers

    Questions & Answers

    • How much brighter are the VICTORY HT riflescopes compared to the VICTORY V8, Varipoint and Victory FL Diavari, and can I really see the difference?

      Some 30 years after ZEISS broke through the 90% transmission threshold in the design of its binoculars and riflescopes, the new optical concept, combined with the innovative high transmission (HT) lenses from SCHOTT have now achieved unrivalled transmission values of up to 95% and more. In addition, the HT illuminated reticles (60 and 54) lose no light at all, which gives the advantage of several percentage points in terms of transmission.
      The difference to other riflescopes is just a few percentage points in terms of transmission, but is clearly visible in the final, critical moments of light.

    • What is the difference between FL, HD, HT and ED?

      ED = Extra low Dispersion = low chromatic aberrations

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

      FL = Fluoride Lenses; a special, high-quality sub-category of the ED lenses

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

      We use HT in the sense of a complete HT concept: binoculars that are based on the FL binoculars but which have extremely high levels of light transmission. VICTORY HT binoculars also have FL and HT lenses. VICTORY HT riflescopes do not have FL lenses.

    • What do the abbreviations mean?

      Meaning of the abbreviations

      FL
      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

      GA
      Previously used to designate Dialyt binoculars with rubber armour

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

      MC
      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

      B
      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

      S
      Binoculars with mechanical image stabilisation

      M
      Riflescope models with ZEISS mounting rail.

      iC
      Riflescope with illumination control

      ED
      Extra low Dispersion = low chromatic aberrations

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

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

      SF

      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.
