Product Highlights
  • Waterproof
  • Straight Viewing
  • 20-60x Wide Angle Zoom Eyepiece
  • 40-60° Apparent Field of View

Celestron manufactures the Ultima line of straight viewing prismatic spotting scopes in 65mm, 80mm & 100mm varietals to suit your needs.  The larger two can also be had with ED (extra-low dispersion) glass elements, an expensive product which produces a marked improvement in the color fidelity, resolution and edge delineation of the scope's imagery.  All the Ultima line are mated to an eyepiece and render views which are both rightside up and laterally correct to the world, making them good for both terrestrial and celestial observing.  All Ultimas are waterproof, making them more robust than ever before.  Celestron surely is delivering exceptional value.

The Ultimas now offer the choice between 45° angled viewing or straight viewing as you prefer.  Most users will prefer angled scopes because they are both simple to use for birds perched high above the viewer as well as easily simultaneously shared amongst users of differing heights.  But some will prefer the straight viewing models, for these are much easier to use when hunting down the object of interest in the first place.  Straight viewing models are also usually a bit lighter, brighter and less expensive.  The choice is yours.

Certain Celestron products include their wonderful "No Fault" warranty coverage, which assures that your scope will be repaired or replaced at Celestron's option for as long as you own them-no questions asked!  The only requirements on the user's end is to ship the binoculars(at the user's cost) to Celestron with a proof of purchase and a check or money order for $25 to cover the costs of inspection, shipping and handling.  This warranty service is valid only for USA and Candadian citizens purchasing from an authorized Celestron dealer.

Built-In T-Mount Threading for SLR Shooting
The straight viewing Celestron Ultima series feature a T-mount threading upon the eyepiece barrel, allowing your scope to act as an ultratelephoto lens upon your SLR camera (digital OR film) with just the addition of a camera-specific T-mount adapter.

      The spotting scope not zoomed in is ok not great but just ok, the eye relief for eyeglass users isn't very good, I found if you zoom in at all the view becomes out of focus and when you try to refocus the scope it never becomes sharp again, the chromatic aberration is very bad. You get what you pay for. I will be ordering a Vortex scope soon.

          Comments about Celestron Ultima 80 3.1"/80mm Spotting Scope Kit:

          I bought this based on reviews and glad I did now that I have it. It seems a little heavier than other spotting scopes in this price range and initially it seems to be better made.
          Image is very clear and easy to identify small objects at maximum magnification.
          I checked out other scopes at my local stores and am very happy I settled on this one.
          I can't wait to use this for hunting this fall.

                          I have only used it a few times so it is difficult to say if it will hold up to much abuse. My other spotting scope is an old leupold gold ring and to be honest the image quality is similar, but that is the only comparable feature. The Ultima 80 is long, heavy, and feels fragile. It is very front heavy when on a tripod so it gets hard to use at full magnification. You will definately need a good tripod. I plan to use it for a November elk hunt in Utah so I should get a good chance to test its durability. I give it 5 stars because for the price it can't be beat.

                                      For the price this is a very good scope. It is a little large but the image is clear and the focus and zoom operation is very smooth. I primarly use it from a bench for target shooting and have no problem identifying hits at 200 yards.
