Optics Planet recommended this spotting scope to me and gave me pretty good advice. I use it for hunting/shooting at the shooting range and sometimes in the field. I am not a spotting scope expert, but it seems like a good value for the money. The image seems clear and it is pretty easy to look through the eye piece. The biggest down side is probably the size, when using it in the field, it would be nice if it were smaller, but, I think, for the money, you can't get a smaller one that is comparable in image quality, magnification, etc. It also has a lifetime no fault warranty which, supposedly, means they will replace or repair it, no matter what happens to it (your fault, accident, etc.).
Pros: Good image, lifetime no fault warranty
Cons: A little big.
