Bushnell 786081ED overview

  • 1Description

With extra-low dispersion glass, fully multi-coated optics, and powerful magnification, the Legend Ultra HD 20-60x80 Spotting Scope from Bushnell offers a bright image that brings distant details into sharp focus. The angled-viewing scope is water and fogproof, and its RainGuard lens coating causes rain, snow, or fog to bead up, permitting use in inclement weather.

The extra-low dispersion (ED) glass virtually eliminates chromatic aberration and color fringing to maximize color resolution and contrast. Brightness and clarity are further enhanced by the optimized light transmission of the anti-reflective optical coatings. The scope's 60x maximum magnification will bring distant vistas up close, but you can also focus as close as 35' away. The light-gathering power of the large 80mm objective lens assures performance even in low-light conditions.

Rubber-armored housing
100% waterproof, nitrogen-purged housing

    Bushnell 786081ED reviews

    Legend Ultra HD 20-60x80 Spotting Scope Kit (Angled Viewing) is rated 4.3 out of 5 by 24.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent service B&H always provides the best service and this time they have done it again, with speedy delivery and a product packaged carefully and professionally. I would highly recommend B&H when you're in the market for any high end equipment. The Legend Ultra HD 3.1/80mm Spotting Scope Kit by Bushnell is the best spotting scope I have used to date, with superior craftsmanship and ease of use. Spotting 5.56 holes at a distance of 100 yards is perfectly clear and the tripod mount makes it steady for longer distances. The scope also works well for spotting game out at 300 to 500 yards. Highly recommended optics at a reasonable price.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Bushnell Legend Ultra 20-60 x 80mm I compared this side by side at a local Scope City and the Bushnell looked as good as both the Pentex and Nikon which both cost almost 3 x as much! The big names were nicer but way out of my price range. I think at $ I got a great scope! I even bought the smaller 12-36X50 to carry on hikes. Great glass on these Legends!

    Rated 2 out of 5 by from Great Scope, Poor Case and Cust. Service The scope image is clear at all magnifications and has great color reproduction; however, the case is terrible. I had only used the scope a couple of times before the shoulder strap rivets broke and the case hit the ground (with the scope inside). Upon immediate inspection, the scope seemed undamaged, but when I tried to adjust the zoom eyepiece, it wobbled around. I found that the body of the scope was broken right below the eyepiece. The case has very little padding around the ends. This means that the eyepiece and objective are not well protected. Bushnell sent me a shipping label so that it could be repaired. I requested a new scope since the damage was their fault. Upon receiveing the new scope, the first thing I noticed was the lack of padding in the shipping box such that the scope was only protected by the improperly-designed case. The new case had a faulty zipper. And although I asked for a new replacement product, it appears that the one I sent in was repaired and sent back. Since the scope appears to function properly, my primary problem with it is that whoever put it back together did not glue the rubber covering all the way back together and managed to get a few particles on the inside of the eyepiece lens that are clearly visible when looking through the scope. I expected much better from Bushnell and was thoroughly disappointed. Bushnell's lack of attention to detail is undermining an otherwise great product (i.e. the scope). If I had to write a review on the scope itself, it would have received 5 stars.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent scope I use this for birding. I purchased a previous scope and wasn't pleased with it, so exchanged and upgraded to this scope. I'm glad that I did. I love this scope, especially the 2 focus features (coarse and fine). I was a little disappointed to note that the scope did NOT come with a tabletop tripod, but before it arrived at my home B&H had updated their pace to include the tripod. I can't hold that against them as I purchased knowing the tripod wasn't part of the deal. I purchased a separate tabletop tripod elsewhere, for use with my digital camera. B&H exchange process deserves kudos. Fast, easy, friendly and reliable.

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Good glass, but terrible tripod mount! The optical quality is good, but the tripod mount broke on the second day of use. Without tripod, this big spotscoping is almost not usable. The quality control of Bushnell has great room for improvement.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from YES, I would buy this product again! We are very satisfied with this spotting scope; the reach at 60X zoom; the eye piece viewing diameter at all magnifications and the bright optics that come with the the 80mm glass make using this scope a real pleasure to use. Viewing a full moon at 60x and with this optics is almost blinding! The built in front extendable shroud is a nice touch. This performance along with a very reasonable cost was the perfect combination for us. We have experience with a slightly older Nikon scope with 20-60X zoom and 60mm optics as well the Bushnell Ultra HD 15-45x60 Spotting Scope. The Legend Ultra 80mm is the hands down winner. The angled eye piece works for our family members. We do no adjusting to the tripod height for family members ranging in height from 5ft tall to 5ft 10in tall. You will want to have a good sturdy tripod when using the scope. The course adjust is a little stiff but works well. The fine adjust is very smooth. The large glass (80mm) results in a larger and heavier spotting scope but not unreasonable in size... the size is well worth the resulting performance. We have not yet tried the scope with a monopod, I suspect the tripod will be more comfortable for viewing. We use the scope primarily for; astronomy, bird & animal watching.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Very good price / quality ratio! Under good lighting conditions, this telescope is exceptional. It is nevertheless a good tripod when one is x60.L magnification eyepiece to move from x20 to x60 is a bit difficult to turn. The dual focus is very practical and gives a very good focus on what you look.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Outstanding scope for the money! I use this for wildlife spotting in southwest Florida and it is everything I wanted in a scope! I spent considerable time in researching this product before making the purchase and it came highly recommended by other owners>
