Features of Leupold VX-5HD 3-15×44 Illuminated CDS-ZL2 Riflescope, LU-RS-VX5D1544:
100% Waterproof and Fog Proof.
2nd Generation Argon/Krypton Waterproofing nearly eliminates the effects of thermal shock, and the Argon/Krypton molecules are significantly larger than nitrogen molecules, reducing the diffusion of gases sealed inside your scope even more than our proven nitrogen technology already does.
30mm Main tube
5:1 Zoom Ratio
Blackened Lens Edges reduce unwanted glare and diffusion through the lens edges to provide better resolution, improved contrast, and superior optical performance.
Extreme Fast-Focus Eyepiece ensures a generous eyebox, superior field of view and optimal diopter adjustment in the field. It allows the user to adjust through the full range of diopter adjustment in 1 complete turn of the eyepiece.
CDS Custom Dial System matched to your specific ballistics information. CDS dials change out easily, allowing you flexibility with different loads, conditions and calibers.
CDS-ZL2 Zero Lock Adjustment with Revolution Indicator.
Extended Battery Life.
Guard-Ion Rain Shedding Coating is a water, dirt, and fingerprint shedding lens coating. Extremely durable and scratch-resistant.
Lead-Free glass lenses. In addition to superior optics, the lenses are produced with none of the environmentally damaging by-products common to standard glass production. Look for extremely vivid color, life-like clarity, and higher overall performance thanks to the calcium-fluoride lenses. Another advantage of these non-lead based lenses is that they’re lighter in weight.
MST (Motion Sensor Technology): a single touch of the button or twist of the dial activates the illumination. The reticle will automatically switch to standby mode after 5 minutes of inactivity, then reactivate whenever the rifle is moved. This eliminates the need for excess movement reaching for buttons while extending battery life (powered by a readily available CR-2032 coin cell battery.
Twilight Max Light Management System delivers usable light to your eye and forms a crisp, high contrasting image. Lens coatings are applied that maximize light transmission in blue colors, since your eye is more sensitive to blue in low light. Red colors are also maximized, since they dominate scenes in typical hunting situations and finally the balancing colors to develop the highest possible contrast. Glare is controlled with special mechanical structures. The end result, you can see antler tines in dark shadows long after the competition has gone home.
