Heavier than I expected. The tiny, flimsy tripod that came with it (unexpected) was a joke as there is no way you could successfuly use this heavy scope on it. Fortunately, it was to replace a scope so I already had a practical tripod. Not as clear of vision as I would have liked. Should have looked at some in person before buying online. As mentioned above, the brochure that came with it was for a totally different scope so didn't have any instructive info with it, but I was able to figure it out pretty quickly, since I already used a scope. Was shipped loose with the box inside a box witout any padding but arrived in perfect condition.
For the price paid, it would be hard to find a comparable spotting scope in my opinion. I recently took the scope to the range and had no problems seeing where my bullets were hitting at 100yds. shooting a small .17 cal rifle. The focus adjustment is easy to operate, and is located on top of the scope for easy access. The carrying case is very well made and provides excellent protection for the scope, but yet is compact and light weight. The only negative I would find with the scope is the fairly lightweight bench top tripod. All in all, Iam very happy with the scope and it's functions.
