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....

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....

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....

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...

Celestron Ultima 100 Performance

by Legacy Reviewer, Verified Owner Written on April 18, 2008
Greetings. I purchased this fine scope to use in NRA High Power & Service Rifle Competition. I went with the 100 mm objective because I need to be able to CLEARLY see .30 cal. bullet holes at 300 yards without necessarily going to the maximum magnification. Talk about clear...when I tested the resolution on tree limbs at 300-350 yards distant from my position, I not only saw razor-sharp tree bark outline but razor-sharp leaves as well. In fact, the resolution is far better than any other scope I've ever looked through in this price range. These 48 year old pair of eyes were able to CLEARLY see ants and various other insects plying the branches 300 yards distant on max. power setting (67X). That's correct folks; clearly defined ants, flys, etc., @ 300 YARDS!...not semi-fuzzy little moving blurs. In fact, I was able to CLEARLY see them and identify them down to the 50X power setting. Color resolution is also excellent. Eye placement is critical when you go much beyond 45X but especially so at/near max. power because you're dealing with very short eye relief and an exit pupil of about 1.25 to 1.50mm's. Optical resolution is incredibly sharp to about 90% of the field with only very, very slight decline at the outer edge of the field. You'll be able to clearly spot and see, with near perfect color resolution, the eyebrow feathers of a Cocaided Woodpecker @ 300 yards, never mind clearly defined .30 cal. bullet holes. YOU ARE going to need a very steady tripod/stand for this scope, ...

Can't Wait for Alaska!

by Legacy Reviewer, Verified Owner from United States, CA Written on July 26, 2007
We use our Celestron 100 Spotting Scope almost daily. It is so simple to set up and use that we don't hesitate to grab it to watch the redtail hawks or roadrunners in our back yard. We are leaving for an Alaskan adventure in a month, and this scope is going as a carry-on wherever we travel. We can't wait to use it for the wildlife in the tundra and for glacier viewing!
Pros: Easy to move and set up----great clarity!...
