The Golden Ring series from Leupold represents the very best in compact roof prism binoculars and spotting scopes.  These are made in Leupold's Beaverton, Oregon facility, and offer the unique feature of ultra-high quality optics in compact dimensions thanks to their designs.  All of the Golden Ring products come with Leupold's Full Lifetime Guarantee, which essentially covers the device for as long as it exists against all but the most obvious of abuse.

The Golden Ring 15-30x50 Compact Spotting Scope gives you a broad zoom range, with great brightness right up to 30x magnification.  Eye relief is always at least 17mm, making for comfortable use for those that wear glasses.  With a bit of practice this is actually quite handholdable at medium powers, but of course you can employ a tripod or monopod if you choose.

    Leupold Golden Ring 15-30x50

    By Bessemer

    Comments about Leupold Golden Ring 15-30x50 Compact Spotting Scope (Brown):

    I will keep it short and sweet. Leupold quality stands above anyone else. This spotting scope does what it claims. I can make out details at 100 yards and also see color as well. Easy to use, light, well made fits perfect on the right stand. I use mine for target shooting and use a Vanguard VS-82 Table Top Digital Camera Tripod

    • Bright optics
    • Good armor and lens cover
    • Light weight

    Cons

    • Focus too sensitive

    Best Uses

    • Bird Watching

    • Shooting

    Comments about Leupold Golden Ring 15-30x50 Compact Spotting Scope (Brown):

    Used for hunting and range shooting. Much better quality and image than most other scopes in this price range, as well as being lighter. Even at max power the image is very bright and clear. Two things I would improve are: 1. make the focus knob turn more for the same focus move--it can be difficult to get right on focus because as you get close, even a little movement of the focus knob moves the focus a fair bit, and 2. it should stay focused better as you zoom in. In short, could be better, but for the money you can't go wrong with this scope. If you use it in the field it is light enough you can use it hand held at the low power setting, if you will carry it in the field there really is no competition.

    Very good lightweight/compact scope

    Pros

    • Bright Eyepiece
    • Sensitivity Controls

    Cons

      Best Uses

      • Birdwatching

      Comments about Leupold Golden Ring 15-30x50 Compact Spotting Scope (Brown):

      Good value for money. The view at 15X to about 20X is very good, clear and bright -considering the 50mm size- with no real problems regarding chromatic aberration -purple/green fringing-. At 30X the view is not the best but still good. Zoom is easy to use and the scope is so light that just about any tripod can hold it still. Leupold offers a lifetime warranty on this product.
