Meade 126001 overview

  • 1Description

This 45° angled-viewing 20-60x80 Wilderness Spotting Scope from Meade features fully multi-coated optics and a powerful 20-60x zoom magnification eyepiece that provide clear and bright images when viewing at long range in all weather conditions. Its large 80mm objective lens gives the scope low-light performance over smaller objectives to spot and track game and wildlife at dawn and dusk or under a heavy forest canopy. On the right side of the body is a fast-focus knob and on the left is a sight tube that runs parallel to the optical tube to help you find your subjects faster. The aluminum-alloy housing is nitrogen filled and O-ring sealed to be water and fogproof. It also has a rubber-armored exterior that protects it from impacts. A digiscoping camera attachment is included that slides over the eyepiece and accepts most user-supplied camera-specific T-mounts.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good 600yd spotting scope for the dollars Took this to a 600yd F Class shoot.� Looked through some expensive scopes and am happy with my bargain.� I imagine the Celestron 80mm would be about the same but I got a better image (at 40 to 50X) than the more expensive 60mm scopes other were using.� No one could see little holes in the black target paper. I will try splatter targets at 600 and will probably be able to see .223 hits. BH shipped fast and free.� Thanks.

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Pretty good up to about 40x Beyond 40x magnification the chromatic aberration is really noticeable with this scope which is not unheard of at this price point but still annoying. 60x is pretty useless with purple fringing really apparent once the image comes in to focus. Below 40x, its sharp and bright. It has a built in lens hood which is great to keep sunlight off the objective lens or keep rain off it in bad conditions. The focusing knob is a little stiff which can make focusing a bit hard too, even on a good tripod. All in all, I'm not too displeased with the scope but it's not as amazing as I'd hoped for. I was able to see jupiter and it's moons the other night which was cool but at these magnifications there is no detail, just points of light. Fun anyway. I use this for archery and it serves it's purpose there pretty well. I would have to spend more to get better quality, but that's the thing, is it worth it to spend more? Tough call.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Meade wilderness at the 600yd line Took my scope to a 600 yard F class shot.� While no one could see little holes in the black paper, spotters were sharp.� Usable up to 40 power or so, more with some loss in contrast.� I'm pretty sure .223 holes in a splatter target would be visible at 600.� The 80 compared favorably with the 60mm "Name Brand" scopes.

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from OK below 40x Above 40x I have found the scope to have way too much chromatic abberation. It's quite a large scope, with an 80mm objective lens so it lets in a lot of light. No issues there. I suppose I expected slightly better for the price. I paid less for a set of binoculars which blow this out of the water.

    Rated 1 out of 5 by from Not happy I when tin to buy a refracting telescope for my son who is interested in space exploration but in my rush I let the sales guy talk me into buying the mead wilderness spotting scope which sucks for celestial viewing...not a happy customer ?

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good Value Scope Great scope for the money, can see 30 cal holes on splatter target @ 300m +, which is what i wanted it for. Do not get the Meade Digiscoping Eyepiece Smartphone Adapter for it, it won't fit and B&H Photo don't care.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good spotting scope This is a good spotting scope. The optics are good for the money. You can get better for 3 times the price. But, I'm disappointed in the B&H return process, which takes a long time.
