      Comments about Leupold Golden Ring Compact 1.6"/40mm Spotting Scope Kit (Brown):

      No this isn't a high-end HD spotting scope. It is a tough well-made little scope that costs a fraction of what my Nikon Fieldscope sells for and it has excellent glass. Hunters and sportsmen take note. Given the size of its lens, it has very good resolving power and excellent light-gathering. Oh, if they would just make me an ED glass version but then it would be in the same cost range as my Fieldscope.
