Helpful Positive Review Celestron Ultima 100 Spotting Scope by David, August 26, 2011
I did a lot of research on finding a spotting scope that would allow me to see 6mm and .308 bullet holes at 500 meters (550 yards), and that was affordable. Cheaper scopes tend to be terrible. This was the only scope I found rated by a couple of re...

Most Recent Review Nice Scope for the price by Legacy Reviewer, September 30, 2013
Nice scope. Targets are crisp and clear. We use 5 of the Celestron scopes with our Youth High Power Service Rifle Team 80mm. I bought this 100 mm to use while the youths are shooting for adjustment advice on sights while coaching.
