less cost could mean less quality

  • Excerpt: I bought the scope because of the name on it however it performs as any other less expensive brand. The fine focus dial is very difficult to adjust. When using higher power there is a large black circle in the middle of the view.

  • Excerpt: I use this as a spotting scope for ISSF pistol target shooting ("bullseye" for Americans). The 25x magnification allows me to see all of the target (inside the 1 ring), but not the whole sheet. It allows close focusing too (around 6m), so should work for 10m air pistol too (haven't had a chance to try it). I shoot at night under lights (outdoor range), and the scope is more than bright enough to see 22LR holes on black.
  • Pros: Bright Eyepiece

  • Excerpt: This does well for birdwatching and gazing at nature.The tripod is okay, but is very touchy when you are zoomed in. I will be trying to mount for a professional tripod and see results.This was bought for my two kids who love nature and they keep it nearby to gaze at the bird feeders hung around the yard when occupied.
  • Pros: Light Tripod, Solid Body
  • Cons: Shaky Tripod

  • Excerpt: I plan to use this scope for animal watching and occasional quick astronomical viewing. Very pleased with the magnification and the image quality. Resolution is good. Jupiter and Saturn was clearly identifiable even at 25x. Valleys and craters of the Moon are very sharp. Only weakness was the tripod that came with the scope.Excellent for travel with the soft carrying case and strap. Good scope for my kids to use. Great value for the money.
  • Pros: Compact size, Ease of Use, Strong Magnification
  • Cons: Flimsy Tripod

Nice scope for the money

  • Excerpt: I was looking for a reasonably priced spotting scope to use at the gun range, so I bought a Tasco 20-60x60 along with a Celestron C70 Mini-Mak Spotting Scope to compare them side by side, intending to keep one of them. (I bought both at @.ca because it offered unbeatable by Canadian standards prices: $ for the Tasco and $ for the Celestron, with free shipping!
  • Pros: Bright Eyepiece, Decent Sharpness At Max, Good eye relief, Price-to-value Ratio, Strong Magnification
  • Cons: Shaky Focusing
