Legacy Reviewer's Review of Burris XTS-2575 Xtreme Tactical Cassegrain 25-75x70mm Spotting Scope 300101

I bought it originally as a spotting scope for target shooting but it's way better than just that. It resolves a clear sharp image all the way out to its maximum range with little or no fogging. The zoom control is far too tight, it was so tight to begin with that the rubber grip ring broke loose and rotates freely. I have managed to loosen it up somewhat by getting a good solid death grip on the scope body and rotating the zoom from one extreme to the other repeatedly. That is my only complaint and I think it will sort itself out with time. The focus control is very smooth and, unlike some other reviews, I'm very happy with the mini-tripod that comes with it. Lets face it, for any magnification over about ten power you need a very solid mount to keep a perfectly stable image. This goes up to 75 power and even my heavy duty camera tripod couldn't keep the image perfectly steady.
Overall, I'm very happy with it and strongly recommend it.
Pros: Very good light gathering ability, very good optical performance, lightweight, and compact.
Cons: Zoom control is far too stiff.
