Excellent optics for the price!Posted .
The best thing about this little telescope is that it is super-powerful with a 10x to 30x zoom, but it is difficult to hold still, as expected, with a 1/4-20 camera mount for stability. It is recommended for birdwatchers. The field of view is narrow, with a small "exit-pupil" as anticipated, even at the lowest magnification. Edge-to edge clarity is limited, but quite good given the affordable price. The rubberized coating is durable, but the supplied case is flimsy and needs to be upgraded for field use. Only one lens cap (for the eyepiece) is supplied, and it fit loosely. Without a tether, it is easy to misplace. Overall, this telescope is a great buy, but if you are not familiar with the use of basic zoom telescopes, it might be too complicated to master. It makes a great alternative to binoculars, both in weight and size for the international traveler with weight restrictions.I would recommend this to a friend
