Great Scope for the price

  • Excerpt: This is a great scope for the price. Decent eye relief. Had a chance to test it out at 60x magnification looking at the moon. The image was really sharp at 60x magnification. I can only give it 3 stars because of the poor quality control by Celestron. The words "Celestron Ultima 80" was upside down on my scope. I did not bother to return it since it doesn't affect the scope.
  • Pros: Bright Eyepiece, Sensitivity Controls, Strong Magnification
  • Cons: Poor Quality Control

Excellent Upgrade

  • Excerpt: I am upgrading from a Simmons 20-60x60mm that I bought from @. Much better scope! I will be using this in Yellowstone for watching wolves and bears at great distances. I've tested it already and it has a great eyepiece, very bright and clear, and easy to focus. It does get some vignetting at 60x but nothing that is a problem. I will update when I get back from my trip in June.
  • Pros: Bright Eyepiece, Strong Magnification

Great Scope

  • Excerpt: Great all around scope. I use it for terristrial and wildlife viewing and photography. Very clear. Heavy duty construction. Does get a little soft at max magnification, but well worth the cost. Just get a good tripod.
  • Pros: Bright Eyepiece, Build Construction, Sensitivity Controls, Strong Magnification, Weatherproof

Ultima 80 spotting scope

  • Excerpt: I bought this based on reviews and glad I did now that I have it. It seems a little heavier than other spotting scopes in this price range and initially it seems to be better made. Image is very clear and easy to identify small objects at maximum magnification. I checked out other scopes at my local stores and am very happy I settled on this one. I can't wait to use this for hunting this fall.
  • Pros: Bright Eyepiece

pretty powerful for the price

  • Excerpt: For a first time telescope user, this one is easy to figure out how to use and has great magnification for the price. The site piece on the side is a bit tiny and tricky to learn how to use. I am overall pretty satisfied with this instrument. It's pretty cool and a high quality piece.
  • Pros: Strong Magnification

Zoom not good

  • Excerpt: The spotting scope not zoomed in is ok not great but just ok, the eye relief for eyeglass users isn't very good, I found if you zoom in at all the view becomes out of focus and when you try to refocus the scope it never becomes sharp again, the chromatic aberration is very bad. You get what you pay for. I will be ordering a Vortex scope soon.

Great Value

  • Excerpt: This is a great value for the price. Sharp image; excellent construction. The focus and zoom controls are smooth. The ONLY negative I note is the very restrictive eye relief. Any movement side-to-side or up-down, and you lose the picture. But again, for the money, this is a real bargain (especially compared to my Canon camera lenses). I got a really good look at the moon last night!
  • Pros: Looks Good, Smooth controls, Very Sharp Image
  • Cons: Sensitive To Eye Position
