Summary: Scope met all my expectations, Better than any I have used so for. I was able see 32cal holes at 100yds in rainy low light conditions. I did not have any problem using the tripod that came with package.
Summary: Overall a great scope! Very clear optics. You will need a better tripod as the one that it comes with isn't sturdy enough for higher magnification. Also, the instructions say not to use it in direct sunlight so it will have to be covered with a towel or used inside the carrying case to protect it from the sun...I find this very odd for what is described as a rugged scope, but all the pros outweigh the minor cons.
Pros: easy to use, clear optics, lightweight, extreme magnification
Cons: tripod not stable enough for high magnification, focus control a little coarse for high magnifications
Summary: despite having whopping 100mm objective lens and enormous 100x zoom this scope is rather average performer. I purchased it to be able to view .30cal holes @ 300yards. I thought 100mm will surly give me a great image quality and resolution. it quickly became apparent that 100x zoom is more of a myth than reality. while you can zoom-in to a 100x image quality at this setting suffers to the point that i end up turning it down back to about 60-65x.
Summary: It's really excellent and reliable scope that have all in one.Very sharp view from edge to egde,very big zoom,smart made case with hole for tripod.I have also digiskoping addapter for digital camera disigned only for this scope that works super!Recently I was watching on sky; moon ,komets and venus/moon -amazing!!!.I was looking long time for scope ,when this came out I bought right away and it was very good choice Iam happy to own it.Thanks to Optic Planet !.
Summary: I reckon this a very good all rounder It's light, easy to carry and set up. But if your going to use it on Max mag, you will need a high quality tripod, as the slightest touch sends it wobbling all over the place, Very very powerful for what it is. Good for Moon watching and even the stars can give very good results!
Pros: easy to carry, anyone can use it, very powerful, even for star watching
Summary: I've been using this scope for quite a while already, mostly for target shooting and wildlife observation, and I am totally satisfied with this product. Impressive (and real which is also relevant!) magnification and ease of use are unbeatable things in this scope. I have also made wonderful pictures of the Moon using the Yukon scope, the pics are detailed and with fine resolution - you can see every crater on the surface! Highly recommended.
