Good scope for the money

I bought this for general use, both celestial and terrestrial , its a good light weight scope for quick setup.

A wonderful scope

First off, this is a wonderful spotting scope. For under $100 it is very affordable, unlike those $1000+ ones. In daytime it shows very sharp images for about 25x-65x. The 75x is very dark except when in the brightest amount of light possible. I went birdwatching with this and saw a bright red Vermillion Flycatcher. The little bird's image was fabulous except on the 75x. For astronomy, Jupiter and the Orion Nebula were great. 25x-50x works best for astronomy. You will need to use a straw for a mini spotting scope(This will help you get the celestial objects into the view of your scope faster(Attach it with rubber bands. Overall, this is a great scope and I would recommend this.
