        Comments about Vanguard High Plains 581 20-60x80 Spotting Scope:

        This scope works well on everything except a bright white piece of paper with black lines and red squares. The chromatic aberration is so bad (at any magnification) that I cannot see .223 bullet holes at 50 yards or 100 yards. The bullet holes are badly washed out by the distortion. Its impossible to focus on the target. I'm presently shopping for a new scope with ED glass.
