I bought this spotting scope to use while target shooting. I have not had the chance to take it to the range yet, due to the weather, however I have tested it out in general and I am very satisfied. I can easily read a street sign on mid power from 1000yds away. Very clear.
Cons: The tripod is not super high quality (minute fine tuning of the position is not easily acheived), however for my needs it is acceptable. I set it on the target and leave it alone.
