Good for Birdwatching
Pros: Bright Eyepiece, Sensitivity Controls, Strong Magnification
Best Uses: Bright Conditions, Low Visibility
Describe Yourself: Casual/Recreational
This is a good scope for birdwatching/ nature viewing- gives good,crisp images from 20x to 60x. However it is rather heavy & cumbersome for the field especially while travelling by public transport over rough terrain in India. Plan to take it to Kenya next year. I have had it for just 6 days & have yet to be able to aim it accurately at the skies - guess I will need to get used to it. However, my principle use is birdwatching as I already have a telescope to view the heavens above!
All in all it is good value for money. However, by the time it arrived in India with shipping costs & customs duty, the price zoomed from US$ 228 to nearly US$400 - Well that is international shopping! Would also like to commend the ease of shopping & good service from Binoculars.com & especially Patricia who promptly & efficiently responded to all my queries.
