Piece of crap.

  • Summary: Very poor quality. On a bright sunny day the image is almost completely dark. Can't make out a paper target at 100 yards.

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.
  • 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.

  • 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.

A good entry level scope.

Mr. J. Bond "escribblings", Amazon

  • Summary: This is a nice little scope, I was originally looking at getting a larger spotting scope but decided that I wouldn't make the use of it. I use this scope for target archery and the odd bit of star gazing. At 75x the moon is incredibly clear, but Jupiter is still a white spot.

Portable and strong

  • Summary: Portable spotting scope with the ability to attach cameras, had to use a different tripod though, because the one provided is too short.
