Great for birding

Nice high quality image. Facial details clear and sharp on birds at 50 yards with great eyepiece flexibility. Worth the back order wait.


Customer review

The Scope is impressive, the eyepiece and diagonal are good, but the finder scope is total junk. The finder scope bracket can be adapted to a laser pointer and the bracket itself is standard and will accept regular Orion finder scopes. Overall, this scope is a very good buy for both astronomy or spotting use.
