Barska 20-60X80 Ad11110

by Legacy Reviewer, Verified Owner from United States, WY Written on June 10, 2013
I've owned 5 other spotting scopes going all the way back to a Bausch&Lomb Discoverer. I wanted to try a scope with ED glass so I thought I would give this scope a try. First off this is a BIG scope and heavy. Color contrast is equal to any $2000-$5000 that I've looked through. The down side is my scope would not focus clearly above 30X. It's best focus was at 20X and progressively lost the ability to focus as the power was zoomed up. At 60X the scope was useless. To sum it up, it's a big, heavy 20X spotting scope. I know that buying low end priced optics is a crap shoot. Some are going to be good and some not so good. Had my scope focused clearly uo to 40X I would have given it the highest rating. Who knows, the next Barska Ad11110 might be as good as the scopes costing thousands of dollars. You just never know until you look through the scope.
Pros: Good color contrast
Cons: Very large and heavy...
Would recommend: No

This is a good value for the money. Clear definition, even at 60X. To get anything better, you would need to pay twice as much.
My only beef, the tripod provided is unstable.
Pros: Good definition, easy to set up.
Cons: Poor tripod...
Would recommend: Yes

I am a novice who did lots of research before my purchase. ED glass was always going to be beyond my budget until Optics Planet ran this special! The images are crisp and clear thanks to that ED glass, BAK 4 Prism and Phase and Multi Coatings. I use this at my home with ocean and beach views and am impressed with it's performance. Ships sitting at anchor present a target with many straight lines at considerable distances. No chromatic aberation is evident. Corners and edges of Hulls and Turretts present without any colour fringing, even at 60X. The Zoom is a little stiff at first but is getting smoother with time. The Focus is not sloppy and easy to use. The threaded main lens cap may allow a moon filter to be screwed onto the scope, but this is just speculation without any research into this. The Eyepiece has a twist up cup for adjusting eye relief and holds it's position well after adjustment. I have no hesitation in recommending this as a great Spotter and at it's current Special price should be something you give serious consideration too.
Pros: Clear Crisp
Cons: None...
Would recommend: Yes
