Very good for the price

by me7-30-14, from United States, WI Written on July 30, 2014
I bought this because I wanted a good scope for looking at wildlife. This scope is not like a $2000 scope but it is far better than most in this price range that I have seen. It is quite clear and with a little patients I am able to view on high power. The picture is a little less clear as you reach the highest setting. It is very heavy though so you must be aware of that I have tried several tripods you really need a fairly beefy tripod for this scope....

Celestron 100

by Legacy Reviewer, from United States, WA Written on November 23, 2013
@ 300 meters resolution was poor, greater than 1 cm. Objects less than a cm. were not resolvable. This was in the 55 power range. @ the maximum 66x power, brightness and crispness dropped off dramatically.
Pros: Good at moderate power and range for nature watching.
Cons: Poor resolution at long range and high power....
Would recommend: No

Nice Scope for the price

by Legacy Reviewer, Verified Owner from United States, PA Written on September 30, 2013
Nice scope. Targets are crisp and clear. We use 5 of the Celestron scopes with our Youth High Power Service Rifle Team 80mm. I bought this 100 mm to use while the youths are shooting for adjustment advice on sights while coaching....

Shooting Range Approved

by Legacy Reviewer, from United States, WA Written on January 18, 2013
Guys at the gun club loved my spotting scope. They asked me where I got it, how much it cost, and even wrote down the make, model, and website (OpticsPlanet.com) where they could get one. They commented that they could see "everything" with it. High praise since I just met these guys as my membership was less than 3 hours old. No way were they blowing smoke just to support a buddy! In addition, I spotted three of Jupiter's moons with it
Pros: Easy to use and set up, bullet hole at 100 yards were easy to see.
Cons: Image at full power not quite as bright as I would like....
Would recommend: Yes

One of the Best Values in Spotting Scopes

by Legacy Reviewer, Verified Owner from United States, CA Written on November 17, 2012
I've looked through Kowas, Zeiss, and a few other high end spotters.They're outstanding optics. Got a chance to evaluate the Celestron Ultima 100 and was highly impressed with it. Brightness and sharpness at full magnification (66X) is on par with scopes costing2-3X as much.
Pros: Huge objective lens makes sight picture very bright even on max magnification. Picture is sharp and clear. Equals many scopes that are 3X the price.
Cons: Can't use it with glasses on. 100mm objective lens makes it on the large side. Not a compact....

Angled Spotting Scope - Excellent Purchase

by Legacy Reviewer, from United States, WA Written on January 6, 2012
The scope arrived as expected on time. Very nice scope. Requires a stable tripod to prevent image wobble. Very impressed with the product. Compared with units costing 10 times (yes $2800)this is probably the last spotting scope I will every purchase.
Pros: Very good image quality for the cost
Cons: No hood for the lens...

Celestron Ultima 100 Spotting Scope

by Legacy Reviewer, from United States, TX Written on August 26, 2011
I did a lot of research on finding a spotting scope that would allow me to see 6mm and .308 bullet holes at 500 meters (550 yards), and that was affordable. Cheaper scopes tend to be terrible. This was the only scope I found rated by a couple of reviews to see out as far as I need to see.
The first time I took out on a day without a lot of mirage I was thrilled to see my bullet holes clearly at 385 meters and 500 meters. You can see the holes better with "shoot and see" targets, but you can see them on plain cardboard as well. I love this scope.
Pros: Long Range Clarity, quality components, ease of use
Cons: None for what this scope cost....
Would recommend: Yes

Great Scope For a budget

by Legacy Reviewer, Verified Owner Written on August 3, 2009
I work in wireless communications and this scope is great for looking at parts and color codes from the ground to 300ft plus upstairs. Great Clairity and zoom. But you need a rock solid tri pod at the higher power settings...
