Much better the Ultima 80

Excerpt: First I get the Ultima 80 to watch the mountains from my balcony in Santiago,Chile and I start to watch the moon and some planets (Jupiter and Saturn looks small but very sharp and clear) and I liked so much that I want to improve it so I sell it and get Ultima 100.
Excerpt: I got this scope to replace a cheap x40 power scope I had for viewing rifle range targets. 100 yards is fine and the color & sharpness much better.
The scope came with an offset for the mount which greatly improves the balance.
Excerpt: I previewed this scope at B&H and was impressed, after receiving mine as a present from my wife, I was disappointed at the image quality on any Zoom setting other then the lowest. Also the image even on the lowest setting blurs on the outer edges of the field of view. It is what it is...
Excerpt: I ordered this for primarily for digiscoping, but I will use it at the range too. There is a little learning curve for photography, but it worked better than I ever expected. My photos of the moon and of the planets are working out well.
Excerpt: Bought one of these new, old stock. Doesn't focus on a 100 yard target. Thought it was my eyes, but had my 16 year old look through it and say "Dad, the other spotting scope is better", which was a $ knock off I had. Unreal, Celestron completely blowing me off on this hiding behind the no receipt.
Excerpt: The one star rating is not given to B&H. The service of B&H is second to none. Looking for a spotting scope for a while. After reading some reviews, I purchased the Ultima-100. Thanks to the great service of B&H, package arrived in 3 days.
Excerpt: Chose this Canadian scope over an Italian Brand. I read a lot of reviews. It was to replace a cheap chinese scope (Saxon) that I was using. The scope arrived - works well but was not as good as I had expected after the reviews I had read. An it is still MADE IN CHINA.
Excerpt: I'm using it for a month now.
I'm enjoying nature watch and digi scoping with it.
Before I buy this one, I had Regal 100.
I expected Regal 100 is much better than Ultima 100 but I couldn't find any big differences with my eye and Cannon 50D.
Picture was great with max zoon than I expected.
Excerpt: I just bought a house with a view of the Pacific and Agate Beach in Oregon and wanted to be able to check out fishing boats (coming out/going into Newport Harbor) and other things such as birds and surfers. This scope works well for everything.
