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. The 50 mm objective lens will not deliver enough light for bright images except in full sunshine.
  • Pros: Accurate
  • Cons: Limited Adjustability

This scope rocks

Dan the Man, Orion Telescopes & Binoculars

  • Excerpt: Our view of the Columbia needed a scope that we could see the fisherman and the river traffic as well as the surrounding Mountains. This scope is perfect for the view we get to enjoy daily. I can see now when a fisherman reals in a salmon...amazing. Thank you.
  • Pros: Adequate Power, Affordable, Clear , Compact, Easy To Adjust, Easy to look through, Love the zoom, Rugged
  • Cons: None

User Review

  • 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.
