For basic viewing this scope will suffice. That is, you will be able to see clear enough images to identify general objects. It will not be able to clearly see different hues of colors. My Nikon 8x42 binoculars could ID birds better at 8x than the Barska at 24x.
Pros: Cheap, Easy to carry, basic viewing and only basic viewing
Cons: Image not clear enough to decipher bird feather field marks
