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.
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
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
Excerpt: This is a small and lightweight unit with good optics. I use it for terrestrial viewing. The zoom eyepiece is good and It can accept standard 1.25 inch eyepieces with the included adapter. I am using a 40 mm Plossl. This gives me a magnification of about 18 with a very clear scene and good eye relief (I wear glasses). Az and El fine adjustments on the tripod are also nice.
Pros: Accepts 125 In Eyepieces, Bright Eyepiece, Easy To Pack And Setup, Fine Az El Adjustments
