Nice Spotting

by Legacy Reviewer, Written on February 26, 2014
This is a little Keeper Spotting Scope. It has sharp view and excellent contrast. Zoom is modest and no significant image diming at maximum zoom. You can attach DSLR to it and use as telephoto lens to take photos of bird etc
Pros: Compact And Sharp Image...
Would recommend: Yes

Celstron Ultima 65, p/n52248

by Legacy Reviewer, Verified Owner from United States, OH Written on October 25, 2013
Met all my needs for general outdoors and range use. Excellent image. Contrary to "package contents" list, no eyepiece cap is included (in fact, a cap for the opening in the scope body to which the eyepiece mounts is what is included). Fortunately 39mm Kaiser lens cap* (and Sensei "lens keeper" lanyard!) are readily available from B&H Photo to remedy this. AND the assembled scope and eyepiece with end caps will then easily fit into the provided soft case.

* - 39mm is snug; 40mm is easy fit but easily brushed off.
Pros: works fine, easy setup
Cons: no eyepiece cap...
Would recommend: Yes

Amazing Spotting Scope

by Legacy Reviewer, Written on May 13, 2011
I bough this scope to replace my broken Yukon Firefall 12-36x50. I got quite surprised for the quality of the optics, and to the removable Eyepiece, that is safer to carry aroung when not using the Scope. My old Yukon scope had it eyepiece broken (I always though that it was too hard to change the zoom) and the Zoom range stucked in the maximum. Since there's no separate eyepiece to sell I bought this Celestron.
First thing I did was putting both scopes pointing to the same spot from my window, and I realized that the Yukon was amazing, and the definition was quite equal to the Celestron, but the colors in the Celestron were more real, and the image in Yukon was a little "warmer". The Celestron by the way is harder to find the subject, cause it have a smaller field of view than the Yukon. To surpass this problem you can use the little aim tube on the side of the Celestron to take your scope near to the "target" and then look through the Eyepiece.
This Celestron Ultima is quite a bargain for it's quality, the only thing that I recomend is to use it's zoom only until 35x or maybe 40x, above it the image gets darker and in some light conditions it's worthless. By the way, there's no big difference in real life using 35x or 55x thinking about the magnification. The bird (I'm ornithologist) doesn't look much closer when using above 35x Zoom. I already compared it to my friends Kowa TSN-601 using a 30x Eyepiece, and the magnification of 24x in Celestron was very similar to Kowa's...

The worst spotting scope

by Legacy Reviewer, from United States, WA Written on October 24, 2009
This scope has to be the poorest built thing I have even seen. I got this thinking it was a good deal after looking at reviews and doing alittle research. Well after a week the eye piece fell out and I lost it while deer hunting. I got a hold of celestron and they wanted me to pay them 35 more dollars to send it back to get a new eye piece. NO THANK YOU. I would not recommend this scope to anyone, from bird watcher to hunter, STAY AWAY!!!!!...
Would recommend: No
