I was about to purchase this spotting scope for $199 when I happened to look once more at this site and found I could get the scope and the tripod for $179. The scope is VERY clear for the magnification range and the tripod is adequate for indoor or windless use. Once again Optics Planet had the lowest price by far and free shipping. Thanks Guys

Bought the scope and tripod package to watch birds and animals out my back window. Works great for this purpose. Clear optics and easy to focus over the 20-60x range. Mechanically has solid construction. Tripod is adequate to hold the scope steady and easy to adjust the aim.

this scope is clear and a real bargain. as a range scope, it is a bit cumbersome but for general observation it should be really great. Tripod isn't great but it was free. cant beat the price

Pros:  Scope is EXCELLENT, and great value for the money. Performance is better than I expected for the price/
Cons:  Tripod is totally unsatisfactory.
Would recommend:  no

I purchased this for birdwatching and found that the tripod HEAD just is not stable enough to allow focusing (scope moves (judders) too much when making a focus adjustment. The tripod seems to be very stable and is easy to use. It has an integral (non-removable) head which is made from a plastic material. The adjustments and locking seem to be quite good, but in reality the head just moves too much. A strong breeze causes the scope to wobble and render viewing useless. This scope/tripod (52250-OP) should NOT be sold as a package. Tripod and head are probably useful with a camera or video recorder BUT NOT A SPOTTING SCOPE. I will throw the tripod away and buy another one somewhere. Unfortunatly, I can't just replace the head! ! ! Bottom line: Do NOT buy this package. You will be dissapointed.

Your expert (a lady whose name escapes me) on the technical and practical aspects of this spotting scope scope was exremely knowledgeable and correct on every detail. For the money I feel this spotting scope is the best I have seen.

I couldn't believe that OpticsPlanet was selling this scope WITH the tripod for $159 with shipping. I was ready to purchase it as a standalone scope - thinking that the tripod would be pretty cheap. It's not! You'd pay $40-50 for a decent tripod like the one included, so when you factor that in the package is just remarkable.

Pros:  Clarity to 300m
Cons:  Eye Relief at 60x
Would recommend:  yes

Great for the price. With coupon code found online (Search for Opticsplanet coupon code before ordering and get x% off, I got 5%, so price was just over $151 w/ free shipping). You get a great stand and a solid spotting scope. Clarity was great at 300m. You can spot individual pine needles at 300m. .223 Bullet holes no prob @ 300m. Clarity better than expected. Keep in mind you are paying 150-160, but clarity compares well to a Leupold VX3 scope at 24x. Much better than Barska for the price. Same as the Burris 20-60x80mm for a bit less money with a great stand. Made in China.
