This is another excellent quality piece of glass from Vortex. After having owned several spotting scopes in the similar price range as the Vortex Nomad, this one blew the others away.
You can get great detail without distortion with this scope. you can zoom in on a bird or whatever object your looking at and adjust it a bit and it looks like it is just two foot from you instead of a 100 yards away.
The only thing that I was expecting that I did not receive was a stand. I just simply mated it with an old one I had lying around.
Pros: Great clarity
Cons: did not come with a stand
