Legacy Reviewer's Review of Alpen 20-60x80mm Angled Waterproof Spotting Scope - 45 degree Eyepiece

The trade off was brightness VS size. You can't have both. Very little chromatic aberration, only evident at full zoom. Love the way the eye cup rotates easily for a quick distance change for those with glasses. This feature appears as though it will hold up to frequent use. The scope is overall far better than what I expected for the bargain price. It compares favorably to far more expensive scopes I have used. High enough quality for any birder.I intend to travel with this scope and appreciate the provided soft case. The little tripod is well made but useless for a birder but target shooters will be pleased with how well the tripod is made, not a cheap extra piece of junk. Ordering was easy and the scope arrived early. Pleasure doing business.
Pros: Bright, sharp, well made, close focus, great eye cup.
Cons: It's large
