I have owned several spotting scopes used for hunting and target shooting. This scope blows them all away with the brightness and resolution of its optics.
Spotting bullet holes in the black area of a target at 200 yards used to be difficult. With the Swarovski its easy. Decent eye relief allows use while wearing spectacles or safety glasses. It is also light and compact to carry. For the price they should have included the very nice molded carrying case I was obliged to purchase separately. Bottom line: More money than I wanted to pay, but the superb quality eases the pain.
Pros: Amazing clarity, light weight
Cons: Price, no carrying case.
