Don't buy it -- you will be disappointed. The low (25) magnification works, barely. Don't even think about using higher magnifications. It's hazy at best and difficult to focus. The tripod that's included is a joke.

This is a well priced spotting scope and has a high magnification. The problem is, that at the high magnifications, it's not that good. My impression is that, as with anything, you get what you pay for. For the price, this is what I would expect.

Stay away from this spotting scope. Cheaply made and did not function. Internal lenses float and will not line up. Couldn't focus the scope. Worthless!

Cons:  Worthless optics....
Would recommend:  no

cjt wrote:

Anything past 25x and the focus and eye-relief become less and less effective. At 125x it does not focus and the eye relief is almost negative (your eye almost needs to touch the glass to see anything). Used at the range multiple times, anything over 100 yards at 22 cal is invisible. Maybe you could see a 50cal hole at 200 (maybe)....

Pros:  Good bang for the buck...
Cons:  focus is somewhat cumbersome... Clarity could be better, but at sub $200, it does the job.
Would recommend:  yes

Kimmer108 wrote:

The scope provides a good view out to 500 yards. Although I've seen better clarity with the $300 spotting scopes, but for under $150 and with a tripod, hard/soft case, it's a very good value. Besides, if you are shooting 500+ yards anyways, you would likely be investing in US Optics scopes and spotters for $500.

Pros:  Easy to set up with clear optics
Cons:  Tripod
Would recommend:  yes

Only negative is the tripod is a little flimsy. You need to be careful not to accidentally bump the scope as it will tip over easily.

Pros:  125X magnification, large objective lens, decent price
Cons:  Poor optics, tripod mount in unbalanced location.
Would recommend:  yes

Why do I say poor optics yet recommend it? Where can you get 125X for $140 without buying an astronomical telescope? I could spend $220 for a Bushnell 20X-60X but that's not 125X. Impossible to get a crisp clear image at any zoom factor. BUT, good enough to see bullet holes in a distant target, read the target brand name at 125 ft. (and get a headache). Also if your eye is not snugged up tight to the eyepiece any light entering the eyepiece from your end returns an undesirable reflection of a disk to your eye. So I guess that's what happens when you don't design a scope using adequate coated lenses in appropriate groups to reduce glare, bloom, improve focus, etc. Balance: The tripod mount is located so far back that the heavy weight of the scope is far forward. I worry that it may break. DO NOT CARRY THIS SCOPE ON THE TRIPOD, it may not last. So if you are willing to accept these limitations, you will not be "happy" with the image but your wallet might. Why did I buy ...
