I'm using this scope primarily to look at various stuff ranging from eagles to container ships off our back deck, so its not-so-petite size and weight aren't an issue. The scope has a solid feel and the 20-60x and 30x wide angle eyepieces both do a great job on both clarity and brightness at this price point.
There's a verrrrry slight hint of chromatic aberration in high contrast images (such as a bright, shiny power line against a very dark, shaded background) that might or might not disappear with ED glass at 3x the price point. It's there, so I'm mentioning it as a nit, but it isn't noticeable enough to make it to the "con" header.
Overall, I'd buy it again.
Pros: Solid construction, bright and clear optics
