Nice spotting scope, for not too much scratch. Could actually see .22LR bullet impacts at 200 yds with this. Keep in mind that I was using shoot N see targets, but all the same this is the first spotting scope I hav owened that I could do that with. The eye relief sucks, had to take my glasses off and get right next to the eye piece to see anything. Overall, I would recommend this scope. I would also recommend that you get a better tripod, I did. the one that comes with it is pretty flimsy.
This tripod is a little on the heavy side. The controls to extend the legs takes a bit of effort. And there are "O rings" that a between the joints or section of the legs, to keep them from hitting together when closed. One of those "O ring" were missing, bet I didn't feel it would be worth the effort to exchange the tripod or get a replacement "O ring". But it is built well and should last many years with a little help and to keep it clean.
Without a doubt, this is a professional tripod. Quite heavy, though it does come in a sturdy, ballistic nylon carry bag. My only complaint is that it smells funny! Odd, I know, but it has a strong metallic smell. I had to move it from my office because it bothered me so much.
