I bought this scope some 2 years ago or so. This scope has met all the needs that I have expected from it. I use this scope primarily as a spotting scope. Occasionally I use it as a camera lens, and for planetary telescope viewing. As a spotting scope this scope does the trick. You could pay a lot more for a spotting scope, but why? The images are crisp, clean and clear. I use this at the rifle range and when birding. I also use this with my DSLR Camera as a in-expensive long reaching lens. I did have to buy a few adapter and an extension ring which were not expensive. But once I had these I was really impressed at how well the pictures turned out. I have quite a few pictures of birds and other objects that have crisp, clean detail to them. I have used this for viewing planets and other objects in space. If your looking to see celestial body, you may be a little disappointed. You can see the Orion Nebula well along with a few others, but without great detail. I consider this a multi-purpose scope. Do yourself a favor and buy a better tripod and a hard case to carry and protect it when storing. I use the carry bag as a ammo bag when going to the Range. I use a moderately expensive camera tripod and that seems to work well. I needed it anyways for my camera's but a decent tripod should do well with this scope. As stated in an earlier rating. The tripod could be a lot better. But what do you expect for this price. The money you save can go towards a better tripod.
