Carl Zeiss Introduces the Victory Varipoint RifleScopes
Varipoint 1.1-4×24 T* and 1.5-6×42 T* with Reticle # 60 – A New Reticle that Combines the Advantages of both the First and Second Image Planes

CHESTER, VIRGINIA – -( The newest Carl Zeiss riflescopes for dangerous game and fast target acquisition are the Victory Varipoint 1.1-4×24 T* and 1.5-6×42 T* with the new reticle # 60. This reticle is different from all others on the market today as Carl Zeiss is the first manufacturer to combine a classical crosshair in the first image plane with a brightly illuminated red dot in the second focal plane. As a result, the extremely fine Varipoint dot in the second image plane covers only an absolute minimum of the target – on any power setting. At the same time, the crosshair size changes in relation to the power setting providing a good feel for the respective shooting distance due to the constant subtensions. This reticle concept combines the advantages of both first and second image plane reticles in one scope, an engineering feat that adds to the legendary Carl Zeiss reputation as an innovation leader in sports optics.

The Varipoint dot in the second image plane offers a wide range of intensity levels for use in bright daylight and snow-covered areas to even the lowest light conditions. The brightness level is controlled manually on the Varipoint 1.1-4×24 T* through the rotary knob located on the left side of the center tube. All other Varipoint models feature an automatic brightness control once the illumination feature is activated. Manual control of the brightness level is also possible.

With the new reticle # 60, the dot size remains constant to the eye of the hunter as the scope magnification is increased, thus keeping subtensions small on the target. Also, for fast target acquisition at close range, the illuminated dot covers a mere 3.9 inches at 55 yards guiding the eye into the target quickly and safely. On the highest magnification the dot covers only 0.87 inches at 110 yards allowing the user to shoot extremely tight groups.

Reticle # 60 is also available in the Varipoint 2.5-10×42 T*, 2.5-10×50 T* and 3-12×56 T*. All Varipoint models are nitrogen filled to prevent fogging during extreme temperature changes, recoil proof and water tight to ISO 90222-81. In addition, the ZEISS LotuTec® water repellant coating ensures a clear, detailed image in inclement weather since water beads and rolls right off while dust and smears wipe off with ease. And, the industry-leading limited lifetime transferable warranty ensures the performance and function of the riflescope from generation to generation.
