Product Description

The Dialyt Field Spotter 18-45x65 is an ideal spotting scope for the user on the go. MC multi coatings and high-performance optical lenses generate superior brightness and image resolution, at any magnification and even in low-light conditions. From mountain hunters needing a straight bodied scope that's also lightweight, to birders and observers that don't want to carry a full-size spotting scope, the Dialyt has a wide range of applications. The 18-45x magnification provides flexibility in the field while the objective focus wheel allows for handheld use. A classic rubber armoring adds to the ruggedness and a waterproof housing allows the user to take the Dialyt anywhere and not worry about lenses fogging up. All of this is backed by the ZEISS Limited Lifetime Transferable Warranty.

I purchased this spotter a few months ago through amazon and have been using it every time at different weather conditions. Though I can say that the optics are excellent, I believe an objective evaluation will be best if compared to my other spotting scopes, namely: Steiner 24x80 military field scope(made in 1989), Optolyth 15-45x80 collapsible spotter, and Swarovski Habicht 20-60x80 st model(at least 15 years old,non-hd glass). In terms of image quality (brightness, contrast, clarity), this zeiss unit is clearly superior to the Steiner, slightly better than the Optolyth, and probably, this spotter is as good as the Swarovski. Color fringing is not as noticeable as those of the Steiner and Optolyth but very,very, very slightly more than that of the Swarovski(only those who are very sensitive to chromatic aberration will notice the difference). The depth of field is about the same as that of the optolyth and the swaro but less than that of the steiner. Surprisingly, with a 65mm aperture, it has a wider field of view than the 80mm steiner but less than the other two 80mm scopes. All units have more than adequate eye reliefs and they are all easy to focus. This zeiss spotter is just as light and portable as the steiner and optolyth (maybe less compact) but looks and feels as tough as the military-grade steiner scope. With its light weight, portability, rugged construction (the body is fully rubber armored as the steiner), and top-notch optics (from the objective to the zoom eyepiece), this Zeiss 18-45x65 Dialyt is an exceptional spotting scope and in my humble opinion is truly worth its price.

I have a Zeiss Dialyt 65mm scope with the 15-45X eyepiece. I realize that the 85mm Zeiss scope would be the ultimate, but it is also larger and heavier. I carry my scope everywhere with its Bogen tripod and video head over my shoulder, so weight matters. After several years of experience with the 15-45 eyepiece, I believe I made the right choice. I use the scope at 15X a lot more than I would use the 20-60X eyepiece at 60X. In fact, 60X is often useless when looking at distant birds, because mirage may distort the image so much that the bird is unidentifiable. It's a fact that you can often see more detail at 45X than you can at 60X: A while ago I was looking at some white birds a long way out with a 60X scope, and the mirage turned them into white blobs. Great egrets? I wondered. Then I looked thru my scope at 45X and realized the blobs were white pelicans! As to the 15X end of the zoom eyepiece -- it's great for scannning an area, tracking moving birds, and in low light. One of my most enjoyable birding moments ever was watching a pair of short-eared owls hunting over a marsh. The scope was on Bogen's small video head attached to a window mount, and I was able to follow the owls in flight and see detail an hour after sundown on a cloudy day. The 15X made that possible. I zoomed the eyepiece to 20X and immediately found it hard to follow the owls. The 3 mm exit pupil was invaluable in that circumstance. As to the scope itself, the optics are unbeatable and the dual focus mechanism is easier for me to use than trying to rotate the whole barrel, per Swarovski. One other point: the 15-45X eyepiece at 15-20X has plenty of eye relief, so you don't have to take off your glasses to use it. Finally, I believe the lower-powered Zeiss zoom eyepiece on the 65mm Dialyt is 15X, not 18X as stated here.

1st of all. Here what the resolution of this scope can do:
Today, I put this spotter on a tripod and was able to read a LICENSE PLATE on a trailer that was 1200 YARDS AWAY!
(If you want to use the full potential of a great scope, don't forget you will need to invest into a good Tripod for shake-free picture).

now, let me go to my opinion/description/experience with this field-spotter:

This product is VERY ROBUST! ...Sturdy...Waterproof/ Fogproof....built like a tank......very tough.....kinda like it was built for the military and to be used at war.....
Did you notice, how most scopes come with some kind of protective cover or bag/case? well, this one doesn't...and you know why? because you really don't need much protection when it comes to this scope...thats how tough and rugged it is....
With this scope you just put on the supplied rubber scope caps and throw it in the backpack or put the strap over your shoulder to carry it when hiking and forget about it. In either case, no additional protection is needed and no more worries. It's all in heavy duty rubberized armor.

The strap goes through the thick rubber caps that sit tight -> impossible to have the caps go off and/or lose it!

There is nothing sticking out on the outside surface (most spotters have some kind of focus knob etc) -> meaning there is not much that can break off or get damaged because of this clean design...its one eye piece to screw on or off (eye piece is built-in), which just adds to the ruggedness and limits the room for weakness and potential damage.

The way it's built and how tough it feels..that's just very valuable to me, as i plan to keep it for a long time (I don't buy expensive scopes like this every year)....
