    Great Spotting scope!
    This is a great value for a spotting scope. Please note that this is NOT a high end scope (see the price), but it is indeed a great value for the money. If you need high resolution, then you'll need to spend alot more, trust me. I bought this scope for every day use, take it to the range, back yard skywatching, get kicked around and used by everybody sort of touch scope without investing a ton of money. I've seen other scopes in this price range that don't come close to the image quality of this ... read more scope, so I was quite pleasantly surprised at how clear the image is. And Academy Sports was very helpful and friendly when I was selecting a scope.

    Best for the Price
    For the price, excellent quality, reasonable magnification, easy to set up and focus. For someone with corrected vision, the eyepiece is large enough so that glasses can continue to be worn. The focus & field of view are very easy to operate with enough tactile feel that one does not 'jump' out of focus. To aim this scope, just point it in the direction of what you need to look at and then 'zero' it in. I do not find anything detrimental to write about this entry level spotting scope.

    Excellent Scope for the Price
    Great scope for zeroing out to 100m! Recommend putting on camera tripod rather than use the included bench tripod. Dropped it a couple of times and no damage. Could easily spot hits while zeroing my AR-15 and saved us a lot of walking to/from the target. Sure there are better (and more expensive!) scopes available, but for the price, this works great for my needs!

    Great setup
    I bought this for the range, it's a good clear optic and comes with a really nice hardshell case.

    you can see what you want to see
    This scope works well you can easily see bullet holes on the target at 200 yards. Don't know about further than that. Also works great in my deer stand for spotting those hard to see horns at low light. And the strait through site makes it easy to spot a deer or your shooting target fast. The stand is nice made of good quality and is easy to set at different heights. love it buy it.

Choosing the Right Spotting Scope for You

With so many styles to choose from, it can be hard to find the best spotting scope for your sport. We're here to help. Hunters will typically want a compact and lightweight spotting scope for easy transport and quick movement so you can stay on top of your target at all times. For target shooting or even bird watching, you might prefer a spotting scope with attachable tripod that will keep the view steady.

Once you decide on the features you need for your particular activity, you'll have to choose between a straight and angled spotting scope.

  • Angled Spotting Scopes: these scopes are designed with an ocular lens that angles up from the straight barrel of the scope, usually at 45 or 90 degrees. Bird watchers and backyard astronomers generally prefer angled spotting scopes because they provide better stability and comfort when staring up at the sky.

  • Straight Spotting Scopes: these scopes form a straight line from the ocular lens to the objective lens. Hunters prefer these scopes because they are more intuitive to use, and it's easier to look downward and track animals with them compared to angled spotting scopes.
