Excelent piece of gear for the price.

  • Summary: For the price it is an excellent piece of gear. Good magnification, good focus. The waterproofing is important for outdoor operations. I would add a simple optic instead of a tube sighting scope. A red dot centered on an optical sighting scope would greatly speed up accurate target acquisition.

LIMITED APPLICABILITY

  • Excerpt: Lightweight high gain scope would be better if a sighting or aiming device were part of the frame. Very difficult to aim the scope at the lowest zoom of 26 with a field of view of only a degree or so. The eyepiece is set at an angle to the input direction making it even more difficult. The 50 mm objective lens will not deliver enough light for bright images except in full sunshine.
  • Pros: Accurate
  • Cons: Limited Adjustability

  • Summary: I recently purchased this scope to take to the rifle range and to check out some of the heavenly bodies at night. This little scope has a lot going for it, if you have any 1.25" telescope eyepieces, you can use them in this scope. The optical quality is about par for Celestron scopes. I own a few Celestron astrological Telescopes and they are all about the same. The optics are good and the focus out to about 200 Yards is OK at best.

  • Summary: Don't get me wrong, this is pretty good and at the price I paid (£35) it's vastly better than a lot of things in the price area. Frankly it's better than a lot in the £70 area. The eye piece is a bit of a pain with a very narrow angle to try and get your eye in correctly and see something. Good news is that the saving you can get on this might make it worth buying and getting a second eye piece as it takes a standard 1.25" eye piece.

OK Item, but the one i received was used.

Stephen Brew, Amazon
30 May 2014
  • Summary: The item i received was not New as stated in the advert. the packaging was already opened when i received it, the stand had dust on it and the variable zoom eyepiece was full of bits. After using it the first time i ordered some plossl eyepieces to try and remedy this situation only to find that there wasn't a 1.25" adapter in the as stated in the advert and on the (creased) piece of paper/manual inside the box.

Ornithologist work and the scope

Guest, homeshop18

  • Excerpt: I was overwhelmed to get this spotting scope from my uncle. He knew how much I loved to watch birds. Since we share the same passion, he understood my need. A spotting scope is more powerful than a binocular and this scope from Celestron comes with the focal length of 50 mm and 580 mm which helps to have a crystal clear view of anything and everything. The soft carrying case helps to keep it safely. I am glad to own it.

Spotting scope for forest departmet

Guest, homeshop18

  • Excerpt: I work in the forest department. And I have to spend most of the time in various forests, so i bought this spotting scope. Often I have to notice carefully about many wild animals and the spotting scope works just the way I wanted it to work. The aperture of the scope and the focal length along with the magnification facility works great. The price is perfect considering its superior features.

Spotting Scope- Elegant and Compact

Guest, homeshop18

  • Excerpt: If you want to take your entertainment to a different level then I will recommend this product to you. It has Maksutov-Cassegrain optical design with multi-coated optics for enhanced and good results. It has an aperture and focal length of 50 mm and 580 mm respectively. Also it offers 25-75x magnification which never fails to deliver what you want in any kind of nature. A soft carrying bag is also provided with this. I love this mostly for its compactness.
