Yukon Firefall 15-45x60

by Legacy Reviewer, from United States, FL Written on June 24, 2010
Overall, the scope is great. I put it to the test in the back yard and was able to focus on a tree over 200y away and see great detail. I was able to see bee's flying around very clear. When I cranked up the mag to max it was a little tough to stay focused and the clarity dropped a bit but that's true with just about all scopes. This scope is definately worth it and will save you money over other brands.
Pros: Clear, easy to use, value for the money
Cons: a bit tough to focus at full magnification...
Would recommend: Yes

Yukon Firefall 15 - 45 x 60mm Spotting Scope

by Legacy Reviewer, Verified Owner Written on November 18, 2009
This unit appears to be capable of doing the job that it was purchased for and the price paid suggests that it is value for the money paid. A more expensive scope, may well produce better results, but this unit should suit any new "scoper" wishing to watch stationary birds, e.g. waders.
Pros: Reasonable product for the price. It took only a few minutes to set up and produced satisfactory 45x images once a steady tripod was used. Tactical hard case a boon for general cartage of the scope. Sunshade should be boon in early/late daylight.
Cons: Short range of focus. Table-top tripod is too flimsy for high magnification. Protective lens filter does not fit tightly enough (is a push fit). Unable to retain a filter on the scope under the lens cap. Window mount may or may not prove to be useful ...
Would recommend: Yes

Good value scope.

by Legacy Reviewer, Verified Owner Written on October 4, 2009
This scope performs exactly as expected for the price and features. This was my first spotting scope purchase and has been used primarily for spotting stationary birds and this it does admirably at 15x-20x zoom. Above this the image sharpness drops, especially above 30x where there's not much point zooming further as the bigger image simply becomes less focused. At high zoom the cheap plastic tripod also becomes an issue as it's jerky, rough action means the image jumps around and you lose what you were looking at, this tripod is useful for looking at stationary birds/animals only. A $50-$100 aluminium tripod should hopefully solve this issue plus I wasn't expecting much from the included tripod though it is a bit of a let down.
It is water proof and is unaffected after being left out all night and covered in dew. It's very light weight is handy as I do a lot of camping and the weight makes it a tempting option to take on backpacking camps.
The carry case is great and puts my mind at ease when packing it in the car. As with any spotting scope it also makes a great microscope when you look in the other end, which is much appreciated by an environmental scientist like myself.
I would recommend this to someone looking for an inexpensive entry level spotting scope but a decent quality tripod needs to be purchased with it.
Pros: Affordable, waterproof, light weight, solid low zoom image quality.
Cons: Included tripod is rubbish, zoom above 30x not really worth it....
Would recommend: Yes
