Alpen 20 - 60 x 80 786 Waterproof Porro-Prism Spotting Scope is nitrogen filled, waterproof, dustproof and shock-resistant. It also features powerful lenses. This scope is great for anyone who enjoys bird watching from a casual observer to a professional ornithologist.
Tripod was useless - get a stable Manfrotto 190 or 055 with a decent head - I have good equipment as a pro photographer. Overall good value for the money. You can spend a fortune on this type of equipment but for most of us this will do the trick! Its not world-class optics but is exceptional value at 399.00 Delivery process was first class.
Better than I expected. Wrks great whil birding.
Was well reviewed in journals, and they were right
Used for Archery at 30-70m...Good magnification. For the price...Great scope
Best avoided. Poor build. The positives are few, and do not balance out the many negatives.
