great 200' scope

by Legacy Reviewer, Written on September 30, 2011
I bought the spotting scope for the scope not the stand not the case, I shoot at the range out to 200 yds. with a 22wmr marlin and I can see my shots on target perfect. If you shoot longer target shooting you might need a better scope but you can read signs with 1 foot lettering at 1000 yds. so for hunting and spotting game it may be ok.
Pros: very clear
Cons: high power not as clear...
Would recommend: Yes

Bushnell 20x60x60

by Legacy Reviewer, Verified Owner from United States, OR Written on August 18, 2011
Overall the scope has a great feel to it, it is light compared to other models which is why I picked this one.
I recently went on a game scouting trip and could easily see mule deer and antelope at 2+ miles from an elevated location about 500-1000' above the game.
I purchased this unit as a lower cost alternative and for use in backpack hunting and general use.
It comes with a cordura case, and a hard locking type "suitcase". It has a press on lens cover and screw on eyepiece cover. Very handy. Will fit onto a smaller backpack with ease.
Focus is a bit touchy at 60 power and you really have to get your eye in there to see much. More eye releif at higher power would be a plus.
Really good clarity at 20-45to50 power. Foocus is easy and fast, retractable sun shade is a plus.
Mini tripod that it comes with is only good for a shooting bench.
All in all I am pretty well satisfied with this purchase. For the money spent it is a great pruduct.


Pros: lightweight, sun shade, rubber type armored, quiet
Cons: eye releif is minimal at anything above 45 power, at 60 power you need to really get your peeper in there....
Would recommend: Yes

Great telescope but with a bit annoying design issue

Probably fine for the money

by Legacy Reviewer, Verified Owner from United States, CA Written on July 23, 2011
I've only been using this out to 100 yds so far target shooting. Works ok for that, though with .22 rifles, it's still tough to see the holes in the target. I'll try it out at 300 yds soon with a .308 to see if it is useful, but the optics definitely degrade substantially once you zoom in. Not to mention it's nearly impossible to get your eye lined up correctly at 60x.
Pros: Fine for the price, comes with hard/soft case
Cons: Weak tripod, image soft beyond about 40x, hard to line up eye at high mag...

Great for its price.

by Legacy Reviewer, Verified Owner Written on April 11, 2011
I'm very satisfied with the quality of the image, especially in regard to the price. The mini-tripod is useless, but on a good support the lens make a good job. It's also very light so it's easy to carry in the field. ...

Bushnell Trophy 20-60x65 Scope

by Legacy Reviewer, Verified Owner Written on December 27, 2010
The last spotting scope I purchased years ago had a much better stand.
It was adjustable. This stand sits too low- and you can not adjust
Pros: Good distance - easy to move
Cons: The stand is too small for what I needed...

Good Spotting Scope

by Legacy Reviewer, Written on March 24, 2010
For the first time I saw this model with colleagues at the shooting range. Love the clean image, great zoom for viewing targets. I have a few riflescopes of this brand, acceptable quality. Once again not disappointed in the choice. Certainly, there is a problem with the tripods, but this problem can be solved. In my opinion, decent optics for little money
Pros: Good optics for normal money
Cons: Tripod ...

A Great Scope with an unusable tripod

by Legacy Reviewer, Verified Owner from United States, FL Written on February 6, 2010
The actual glass is clear and bright with good controls and lens caps. However, the money put into the needless aluminum case should have been put into a better tripod and better soft case. The scope was properly packed by Optics Planet and Bushnell, yet the case had a broken corner, easily glued back on. The tripod is really a joke and must have cost the Chinese less than two dollars to make. Fortunately, the scope has a standard tripod thread on the bottom. I will use a high quality Gitzo tripod and throw the OEM one out. You can get a better mini-tripod for $6.00 locally. All in all, a fine spotting scope for a reasonable price. I upgraded to the "non-demo" version for $ 27 more. A good value and appears rugged for any use including hunting, target and military duty.
Pros: Well made, durable, comes with accessories, good value
Cons: Tripod is worse than with scopes costing $ 60.00...

Great Product!

by Legacy Reviewer, Verified Owner from United States, IN Written on December 3, 2009
I purchased this scope as a birthday present for my husband. He loves it and was completely satisfied with the actual scope, but he said that the tripods that came with it were a little unstable. We ended up getting some "gorilla pods" tripods for it and now he couldn't be happier! But when it comes to the actual scope, it's a great value for your money!
Pros: Awesome scope....very clear!
Cons: The tripods are kind of wobbley....
Would recommend: Yes
