We developed the Cronus 20-60×86 UHD to give you one of world’s best spotting scopes with brighter and clearer edge-to-edge detail. Whether you’re hunting above timberline in Alaska, or birding at sea level at Cape May, you will know every detail of your trophy before you take the shot or mark it off your life list. The Cronus product line has just about every feature you would put in a scope to make it the best you can get in its class. We designed the Cronus with Apochromatic system to give you images that have greater contrast, sharpness, and color definition. We included Extra-Low Dispersion Glass that results in a clearer and sharper image. Our state of the art ESP (Enhance Spectral Prism) dielectric coating reflects 99% of the light through the prism assembly. Other design enhancements include BaK-4 prisms and our Advanced Fully Multi-coated lenses that deliver flawless color fidelity, ultra-crisp images, and optimum light transmission. Finally we topped it off with our XPL lens coating that protects the exterior lenses from scratches, dust, and anything else mother nature throws at you.

    So after having the Cronus 20-60×86 spotting scope baking in my truck in south eastern Arizona for over a month now while rolling around on the floor, I pulled it out and put it to the test again. This is a video taken with my I-phone thru the spotting scope of me shooting a 2 liter soda bottle at 1 mile (1760 yards). The actual video on my phone is amazingly clear. I shot two soda bottles at a mile today using the Cronus 4.5-29×56 MOA scope, which also is top of the line.

    I have a night force Atacr and the Cronus is every bit as good as my night force and it comes with a way better price. I’m a dealer for Athlon and have been putting their products thru hell the last 5 months and I could not be any happier. I highly recommend Athlon products to anyone for any application.

    I recently used the Cronus 20-60×86 ED in the 2018 1,000 Yard World Open and was very impressed with everything about the scope. When the sun wasn’t directly on the targets I could see bullet holes at 1,000 yards. This scope checks all the boxes for any serious hunter or competition shooter.

    I traded in a newer model Vortex Razor Spotter after using the Cronus. The glass is soooooo much better, American company and lifetime warranty, I’m very happy with my decision.

    RE: Wayne Aaland: How did you go about trading in your Vortex scope? I purchased a 5-20×50, 34mm Vortex HD Razor scope after reading many, many positive reviews. I then became associated with a veteran-owned company that builds guns and is an Athlon dealer. They swear the Athlon Cronus scope way outperforms the Vortex. Unfortunately, I’ve discarded the box and can’t send the Vortex back for return. I’m in the same boat with the Vortex Razor spotting scope I bought.

    Purchased the 20-60X86 Cronus to replace a competitor’s lower priced model. Prior to making my purchase decision, I have had a chance to use a friend’s, identical model to this one, as well as a number of other competitors scopes over several months. The Cronus has outstanding clarity and build quality. The focus and zoom controls are smooth and precise. The scope weighs in a little over four pounds, an indication of the build quality. The finish is impeccable, looks durable and should hold up well over time. Overall, this spotter is excellent quality and represents an outstanding value.
