Fully coated optics for crisp, bright images
Innovative dynamic focus system

Only fair overall quality and performance. Focusing operation is difficult, light gathering marginal and lens clarity and focal acuity minimal. Knew better when ordering....lulled in by price. Had to learn the lesson again that you get what you pay for in optics. Returned it.

Minuses: Poor objective lens focusing method knocks you off-target, small aperture size at high magnification (almost a pinhole) and lack of any focus tracking over even a narrow zoom range. Point for mounting makes it objective-heavy causing it to tip forward if you don't place a tripod leg exactly out front. A really stupid design. IMHO
Plusses: Good light gathering, nice set of accessories. Tabletop tripos is useful for camera work as well.
Pretty much what I was hoping for. Optics are adequate and the wider lens gathers more light for evening and early morning viewing. The best part is the pistol grip. It's light enough to hold by hand with a brace or walking stick to steady you and that is how I mostly use it as I don't have a full sized tripod. Those small table tripods have limited application. A nice deal for the cost.
I am extremely dissatisfied with the Barska Benchmark Spotting Scope. The quality is very poor, viewing anything in focus over x24 magnification is nearly impossible. I will come back to Overstock when I am ready to purchase a much higher quality product.
