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: I use this scope when I volunteer on the weekends to help people view the bald eagles who winter on the Delaware River. It provides a close up view of eagles perched on trees. As someone previously mentioned a good tripod is necessary because of its size and weight.c
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: Happy with this purchase; I primarily use it for birding and astrology viewing. I have attached a Canon 70D and have gotten some great shots of the moon and Jupiter. I like the clarity of the lens...it does fuzz out at max zoom but rarely need to max it.
Pros: Accurate, Adequate Power, Clear , Easy To Adjust, Easy To Install, Rugged
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: This scope was purchased to watch whales, shipping etc. from our living room.Our home is near Byron Bay, N S W Australia, and is set back from the coastline about a mile on a hill and therefore we need a reasonably powerful scope to see things effectively.
Pros: Accurate, Adequate Power, Clear , Easy To Adjust, Easy To Install
