Not worth the money

More like a toy. Doesn't focus correctly. The more you increase the magnification the worse the focus becomes. Can't recommend this product to anyone.

compact starter telescope.

Great clarity with a fairly useful 36X to get started at long distance spotting... handy device features for positioning while taking long hard looks...

Nice, light weight scope

This is the first spotting scope I've owned but I gave it 4 stars because it's light weight which makes it portable, it's easy to use, and has a really nice image. I've only used it so far for birding but plan on using it to watch other wildlife as well. The tripod is sturdy enough to keep the scope steady. The only reason I did not give it 5 stars is because at 36x, the image is not quite as clear. Overall a very good scope for an excellent price.

Very Nice Scope and Tripod

Images are clear, focuser is smooth. The zoom eyepiece is a little too stiff for my liking so that is why I only gave the scope 4 stars. The metal tripod works very well on a table.

Nice scope at a reasonable price

Used this scope on the rifle range. I shoot from a bench or lying in a prone position. I set it up right beside me at both stations and can refer to it with ease. The zoom is good out to 150 yards when using splatter targets.

Unbelievable Value!

For less than the cost of an 'average quality' eyepiece, to get a 60mm spotting scope of this quality with a clear, sharp 12x - 36x zoom, table top tripod and carrying case was the best optics deal I've enjoyed in years.� In side by side comparisons, it outperforms my 70mm Maksutov spotting scope (which weighs twice as much) and it is a close 'second' to my 80mm Maksutov.� I keep it in my car for observing nature (birds) and for 'basic' astronomy when traveling.� Was pleasantly surprised by a detailed view of the Orion Nebula at 36x and the four Galilean moons of Jupiter were 'easy'.� Another thoughtful Celestron design, especially the 360 degree rotating tripod mount ring and the 'recessed objective' that acts as a light and dew shield.� If I had paid twice as much, I would still be more than satisfied with this spotting scope!

Good scope

Easy to set up and use. Could see 22 LR hole at 100 yards. Eye relief is a little short. That's why the four star rating, but over all worth the money.

No, this is a spotting scope which is intended for shorter distances like 100-400 ft. You need a telescope.
