I am using the spotting scope for target shooting. Can easily see .22 caliber at 200 yards. Very clear and easy to focus. Shot .308 at 300 yards and could see those impacts with ease also. The tripod is a little on the light duty side. It holds the scope I'm not afraid of it falling but it doesn't hold the scope steady at high magnification. Even a slight breeze causes a shake. The scope is very well worth more than cost. Very clear and bright at all magnification.
Pros: very clear
Cons: tripod is not very good
