Konus Konuspot-90 2.6" 65mm Maksutov-Cassegrain Spotting Scope 7118

by Legacy Reviewer, from United States, WA Written on August 1, 2007
This spotting scope may not be the best of all spotting scopes, but it gets the job done. The view and images are clear and the eyepiece is very comfortable. I would reccomend this scope to all begginers....

Konusspot-90 65mm spotting scope

by Legacy Reviewer, Verified Owner from United States, FL Written on July 30, 2007
I'm disappointed overall, but I guess you get what you pay for. I bought this to use as a 100 yd spotting scope for sighting in rifles.

It works well at up to about 50 yds. At 50 yards, I can see .22 and larger holes in paper pretty well. Beyond that though, the relatively poor optics quality becomes apparent. At 100 yards, it is impossible to get a clear picture no matter how the controls are adjusted; the optics just aren't that good. .22 cal holes are invisible at 100 yards, and .30 cal holes are sort of visible but are fuzzy, hazy, and difficult to make out.

The controls and tripod worked about as well as I'd expected, and were ok. Little bit flimsy but workable, and for $100 price range I'd expected that anyway.

Overall, if you're at 50 yards or less, I think this would make a decent spotting scope for you. Anything over 50 yards though and I'd suggest paying more for a higher quality scope.
Pros: Price
Cons: Poor optics quality...
Would recommend: No

Initially bad, then fixed.

by Legacy Reviewer, from United States, WA Written on July 26, 2007
Mine arrived broken. The glue that holds the angled mirror in the housing came apart, and the mirror slide around, making the image useless. I paid for shipping for repairs, and it was returned in the same condition. After the second time of paying to have it shipped for repairs, they replaced the unit. So far, it's working just fine.
Pros: It's cheap, decent for the money, and easily portable.
Cons: You get what you pay for: unreliable quality....
Would recommend: No

Bad mirror polish

by Legacy Reviewer, Verified Owner from United States, MA Written on July 26, 2007
I liked the little package but the optics were so bad once zooming that the scope was of no use to me. As you zoomed in, you could see the pollishing stridations that were done at the factory which darkened and blurred the image quality beyond usefullness.
Pros: small, compact, quick setup
Cons: Very poor optics, mirror had stridations that made the zoom worthless...
Would recommend: No
