This rugged, tan Hensoldt Spotter 60 20-60x72 spotting scope presents a bright, high-contrast image at all magnification levels in a compact design for smaller carrying profile and for concealed observations.

Featuring a Mil-dot reticle in the first focal plane, the Hensoldt Spotter 60 allows reticle-based ranging from all magnification levels. The Mil-dot reticle has red illumination from a single 3V CR2032 battery cell; this illumination will automatically shut off after 3 hours to save battery power. This reticle will also pulse after illumination turn-on to alert the user that battery power is getting low.

The Hensoldt Spotter 60 boasts 85% light transmission, and has a variety of optional accessories including rail segments, laser protection filters, and tripods. The device is environmentally tested to the MIL-STD-810G specification.

I've used all kinds of spotting scopes in the Army and outside, and the Spotter 60 just crushes all of them with its optical quality and ruggedness. No need to flip a Leupold upside down, or deal with a long Swarovski or Zeiss. I've had my spotter on the line with lots of other scopes, and people would look through mine and remark at how much better it was. In some cases it was the only optic that was able to spot the trace of shooters on the line. When deciding on the 60 over the 45, a couple things. The Spotter 60 has a higher low end of magnification at 20-60x. This can make it a bit difficult to pick up relatively close targets. Initially it was annoying having to scan for a while to find the targets, but then I started to get used to eyeballing its alignment. Later I mounted a cheap red dot sight on a side rail and now I'm on target immediately - huge difference. If you shoot often inside of 400m, the lower 15-45x magnification range of the Spotter 45 is advantageous. The reticle on the Spotter 60 is pretty minimalist and I initially was wanting a Horus H32 like the Spotter 45, however it wasn't long before I really appreciated the simple reticle. It maximizes the field of view on the Spotter and it's really easy to use it to call adjustments in 1/2 and 1 mil increments. The H32 turns out to be a bit too busy for my liking. If you're going to mill targets for ranging, then you might want the Spotter 45, but if you're predominantly shooting ELR distances, the Spotter 60's 20-60x magnification range and simplistic reticle is what you'll want.

Hensoldt spotter 60 Pros: Built like a tank. Glass is excellent! Very good contrast. It consistently catches bullet trace when others struggle to do so. The “L’’ reticle is an excellent compromise, lots of clear glass but still easy to use when making corrections. The reticle stays out of the way but is there when needed. I really wanted the H-32 of the 45 or the Swaro str reticle but after using this I’m sold. Cons: Focus and magnification rings are stiff. It is heavy. An issue if you are stalking but I’m using it for stationary spotting. I bought the Badger ordinance SLICK kit and the Triad tactical cover both are excellent additions. The 60 works for what I mainly do but I can see that it may have too much low end power for people shooting shorter distances. Adding a red dot for quick target acquisition helps. When shooting shorter ranges I still sometimes use my old Mark 4 12-40 or a my Swaro 12x binoculars.

Just a little FYI expectation management for prospective buyers of Hensoldt optics. Just received Hensoldt Spotter 60 as a "freebie".....add up the MSRP of all the items; there are no free lunches ...my choice; satisfied there; #6 MRAD....needed this color to maintain my several Barrett rainbows..... :) :)....with the Barrett MK22 MOD 0 Deployment Kit "deal." Had spotter shipped directly to my address....of course, firearm had to go to FFL. When I opened the shipping case, my excited anticipation dropped like a 30-30 round beyond 500 yds. Inside the shipper was only the black Hensoldt carrying case containing spotter, instruction manual, and the miscellaneous items pouch, and string attached tag with what is obviously the optic's serial number........not packaged in an anticipated Hensoldt logo package. First thought......damn a demo, an open box return, a used item.....for the low, low deal price of full tilt $4330. NOT matching my expectations. A call to Eurooptic Customer Service got an explanation which left me still bummed out. Apparently, Hensoldt does not utilize typical "retail" packaging as we are accustomed to in the US marketplace. Doing a little further research, the Operating Instruction Manual states on page 1-10 under Section 1.6 Scope of Supply (German for "What's Included for Your USD$4330" ......."The Spotter 60 will be delivered to the corresponding customers in a commercially available carton." Apparently that's German for "Comes in a Plain Jane corrugated shipping box as supplied by the seller so hopefully it's your lucky day to keep UPS from doing their typical job on it.....we're still pissed over being 0 for 2 in the Big Ones, and aren't going to cater to your silly American expectations." Well, maybe a little ad lib tongue in cheek for fun. :) :) :) Maybe this little heads up will avoid anyone else being surprised and disappointed upon receipt of your fancyschmansyderlookinwayoutderseemlookyspyglass. This optic is to be a gift to a young friend. I expected to have something saying "Hensoldt" when he opens the gift. Suggested to Customer Rep they should boldly note in the Hensoldt item descriptions what to....or not....expect. I always found more success in working proactively to manage customer expectations to a realistic outcome match. Am expecting recipient to be very pleased with optic's performance. But, will do a little expectation management before he opens it. Now, to look for an appropriately sized gift box.....and, maybe, a hand lettered taped on "Hensoldt" logo...:) :) :) Otherwise, this was a typical excellent experience with Eurooptic. They are good to deal with, quick ship, great communication...well about most everything. :) :) :)
