The barrel of the spotting scope appears to have separated
halfway along its length, directly beneath the strap that holds the tripod mounting shoe. The front end of the scope body wiggles. The focus adjustment knob feel is rough when turned and causes the front end to oscillate.
Pros: Low cost, light weight, decent optics, birding friendly
Cons: Middle of scope body is inadequately built. Failed after only three months
