    I use this as a spotting scope for target shooting. So far everything I’ve looked at and worked with gets dicey at about 500 yds. It just depends on the conditions. But a rule of thumb is if the sun is out and you aren’t being barraged with thermals you should be able to see at minimal 500 yds. So far I have not been disappointed in what I got for the price. When there are no thermals and good light, I can see very well at 500yds.

    I also like it’s field of view. I was actually watching 4 targets the last time out without moving the scope. These are 12″ x 12 ” targets.

    I have a Schmidt and Bender 56mm scope and it’s brightness and optics are actually better, but we are comparing a $2000 + set of optics to a < $500 set of optics. I also have a NightForce 56mm scope and I would compare it’s brightness as a little better.

    I have had quite a number of people use my scope for spotting and they are really amazed at it’s performance vs cost. So I would say that if these guys would put in a MOA or mildot reticle, they could sell quite a few more to people who are in the sport of long distance shooting.

    At 600 yds on a good day like the last, I think this would have been fine. But no matter what scope you get, there are going to be some days you just have to walk up.

    The only reason I gave it 4 stars is that it doesn’t have a hash reticle option, and the optics are really not the best. But I think price vs performance this is a keeper. So far I haven’t run into anyone who could see something I couldn’t.

    We have used this scope so far to spy on birds, and to take looks at the moon. It feels very sturdy without being too heavy to carry on a trail to a bird blind. The images are very crisp, clear and bright especially if you are not zoomed in all the way. Once you start to zoom, it does get a little less crisp, but nonetheless, it still is a very clear image of whatever critter you are trying to watch. I would buy one of these again. I would have expected that I would have to pay a lot more money for something of this quality.
