              I tried to use this product down at the range but was extreamly dissapointed.The magnification on my rifle scope was more powerful and clear .
              on the second strongest setting it still was not not clear and at 200 meters I could not see the bullet holes but my scope on 14x was clearer

              Comments about Celestron C50 Mini Mak 2"/50mm Waterproof Catadioptric Spotting Scope Kit:

              Lightweight high gain scope would be better if a sighting or aiming device were part of the frame. Very difficult to aim the scope at the lowest zoom of 26 with a field of view of only a degree or so. The eyepiece is set at an angle to the input direction making it even more difficult.
              The 50 mm objective lens will not deliver enough light for bright images except in full sunshine. Other than those fundamental restrictions, it is well built and certainly delivers value for the price. OK for a fixed aim such as a gun range spotting scope.
