The new No. 60 reticle in the 30mm Zeiss Victory Varipoint 1.1-4x24mm and 1.5-6x42mm riflescopes combines a classic-format crosshair in the first image plane with a brightly illuminated red dot in the second focal plane.
As a result, the diameter of the small Varipoint dot remains constant at any magnification, while the crosshair size changes in relation to the power setting to maintain a constant subtension. Thus the advantages of both first- and second-image plane reticles are combined in one scope, an unprecedented engineering feat that offers a wide range of applications from bright snow-covered plains to the dimmest evening woods.
