Celestron 65 Spotting Scope

UnCL3, B&H Photo
12 April 2015
  • Excerpt: I bought this for spotting paper targets at 100 yards at the shooting range. I didn't want to spend much, and this scope fulfills this need and is a great value. 5.56 holes are very visible at 100 yards.

Celestron Ultima 65mm Spotting Scope

7 October 2014
  • Excerpt: I bought this to use at the range when testing different rifle loads @ 100 yards. I was quite frankly shocked at the clarity, & that out to 300 yards! The only caveat is using it with ample light (daylight) conditions. I am very happy with this scope.
  • Pros: Bright Eyepiece, Sensitivity Controls, Smoothpositive Controls, Strong Magnification, Super Clear At Lower Magn
  • Cons: No Included Tripod

Great

  • Excerpt: Bought this for the shooting range. It's very clear out to a 100 yards , that's all the range I have. Works great well worth the money. I've had no problems with it. I've also tested it just looking down the road and 200 plus yards is also clear.

A very practical scope.

  • Excerpt: I found this scope to be great value for the money. As a 25 metre spotting scope it provides a crisp image at minimum magnification, with a zoom which is 'just right'. As the eyepiece is zoomed in the image gets less distinct but is still very useable at 50 metres.
  • Pros: Bright Eyepiece, Crisp image, Great Value for Money
  • Cons: Less Clear At High Zoom

Decent Scope

1 August 2012
  • Excerpt: This is a good scope if you can't aford a more expensive one. It works well for viewing birds at a fair distance. You can see a lot of detail at a long distance. The scope is light and it is easy to carry in the bag it came with, and the eyepiece comes in a hard plastic case.
  • Pros: Bright Eyepiece, Strong Magnification

Good birding scope at a good price

DG, B&H Photo
25 October 2011
  • Excerpt: I bought this for my wife's backyard birding and she's delighted. Well-suited to the purpose in the 20-40 yard range without zooming. Eye relief isn't bad, but could be better. Decent for casual celestial browsing as well.
  • Pros: Lightweight

Good enough for non-demanding users

  • Excerpt: I bought this Celestron 65 after first trying a generic Chinese 60mm spotting scope for shooting. I immediately return the junk product as the eye relief was so bad as to be unusable.
  • Pros: Fair quality optics
  • Cons: Mediocre eye relief, No tripod included
