Alpen Angled Spotting Scope

by Legacy Reviewer, Verified Owner Written on April 18, 2014
Alpen angled spotting worked just as promissed. The trippod that is supplied is a little suspect for this heavy of a scope. But has worked so far. Carrying case is very proffessional.
Pros: Well built clear focus solid case...

.22 cal. holes in target paper clearly visible at 200 yards. Carrying case, table top tripod, and lens caps with easy set up make this spotting scope a real value fot this price.
Pros: great glass at this pricepoint
Cons: none...

Good deal for the money

by Legacy Reviewer, Verified Owner from United States, OK Written on October 31, 2011
This is my first spotting scope. I read a lot of reviews and found this was rated one of the best for the money. I believe that I made the right decision. Have used it to glass for deer at the lease - its amazing how much detail you can see at 400
+ yards. Haven't taken it to the range yet, which is why I bought it.
Pros: easy to use, clear visibility at distance
Cons: tripod not useful in the field...
Would recommend: Yes

Alpen Spotting Scope

by Legacy Reviewer, Verified Owner from United States, NY Written on October 20, 2011
Tripod not the greatest, but is serviceable. I can see the need for purchasing a quality tripod. This scope does what I wanted, which is to see bullet holes at 200 yards.
Pros: clear
Cons: tripod...

Alpen spotting scope 788KIT

by Legacy Reviewer, Verified Owner from United States, TX Written on August 10, 2011
Have tried it to shoot up to 200 yards and it performs very satisfactorily. Still need to try it longer distance than that. Although included table-top Tripod is adequate, the size and weight of the scope mean that it will always wobble in windy conditions.
Have tried it on full sized telescope tripod with good results. Tried it side by side with a Meade ETX-90 telescope in the night sky.(August summer sky near a BIG city with LOTs of ambient lighting). Anything beyond the Moon against the Meade (with its multiple super Plossl eye pieces)is not fair comparison of course.But I was very pleased to see how clear & crisp the features (and shadows) on the moon are through the Aspen 788! Very impressed.
I bought the 788 only for use as a spotting scope for long distance shooting. It is very adequate for the use I intend to use it for.
The rotating ring thumb screw no longer interferes with the focus knob (as reported in a 11/2010 evaluation). Seems like Aspen have been responsive to feedback which in my view is a good thing. Will definitely look at Aspen products too, for future Optics needs.

Pros: Bright, Clear & Bright images at low as well as Hi-Power. Focus knobs work nicely
Cons: a bit heavy for the included Tripod. Tripod center stem is a bit long to sit it very low on the shooting table....
Would recommend: Yes

Alpen 788KIT

by Legacy Reviewer, Verified Owner from United States, CT Written on November 10, 2010
The Alpen 788 has a bright, clear image, more than suitable for target shooting out to 300 yards (longer distances not tried). The dual focus knobs (coarse/fine) allow for precise focusing. The aluminum case is perfect for secure storage. The micro-adjustable tripod is wobbly, especially in windy conditions, but the kit, which doesn't cost much more than just the scope, is still a good value for the case and the room in it for a tripod. Also,the rotating ring, which allows for angle-of-viewing adjustment, has a screw that hits the focus knob, preventing the eyepiece from being rotated 90 degrees clockwise from vertical. Overall, though, this scope kit is an extremely good value, and is highly recommended.
Pros: Bright, clear image. Coarse/fine adjustment knobs.
Cons: Tripod wobbly. Rotating mounting ring doesn't turn 360 degrees....
Would recommend: Yes

Lot of Scope for the Money

by Legacy Reviewer, Verified Owner from United States, HI Written on May 24, 2010
I spent months researching different spotting scopes and decided to try out the Alpen 20-60x80. Controls are pretty much standard and easy to use and the rotating collar is a plus especially if you're a rifle shooter. The image quality is very good - good depending on the magnification. Although the image quality on brand named top shelf scopes may be better, they are more than twice (some even three times) the price of this Alpen. If you're looking for a scope that offers the most "bang for your bucks", check this scope out.
Pros: Very good quality for price range
Cons: Heavy...

Alpen 788KIT 20-60x80 Water Proof Spotting Scope #788

by Legacy Reviewer, Verified Owner Written on February 19, 2008
Works well but difficult to use out of a vehicle because of the angled body. I recomend a straight body if using out of a vehicle.
Pros: very clear and brightness is good in low light conditions.
Cons: I would rather have a straight scope instead of angled. ...

review for Alpen 20-60x80mm Spotting scope

by Legacy Reviewer, Verified Owner Written on December 12, 2007
I have a Konus 20x60x80 that is a pretty nice spotting scope that bought a couple years ago, because of the good things I had heard about there product. Well this year when shooting High power XTC a fella that I shoot with had an Alpen 20x60x80 and one of the other fellas said look through that scope its clearer than my Kowa. Well that did it and it is clearer than my Konus which I am still very pleased with. I set the two scopes up side by side and was amazed at the difference. Its brighter on all powers and looks to me like it is actually stronger magnification wise, the field of view looks smaller on the Alpen than the Konus with both having 80mm objective I don't know how to explain the difference. I am happy with this purchase and the people @ optics planet are most helpful! Thank you Bob
Pros: clear optics, nicer tripod than comes with most spotters and fitted hard case
Cons: heavy but I expected that...
Would recommend: Yes
