A well built spotting scope with clear optics, a sturdy tripod mounting plate and a sensible carry case. The focussing system works well and the scope can be rotated on its tripod mounting so the angled eyepiece can be used from above, below, left or right.
For me, despite the 100mm objective lens, the magnification (stated as 22-67x) doesn’t get beyond about 34x before the light (and thus clarity) drops off. As you might expect, this is a bulky & heavy item.
I bought an adapter ring to attach my Nikon D750 SLR. All together this set-up gets very heavy and a sturdy tripod is essential. I’ve been slightly disappointed by the image quality I get “digiscoping” with the SLR.
The vignetting is significant but the major problem is blurring/distortion across all but the very centre of the image. It has been interesting to see how important the DSLR lenses are in minimising distortion and surprising to see that my mobile phone takes a better picture through the spotting scope eyepiece.
That’s not to dismiss the scope which is a very capable, if rather pricey, gadget.
I bought four scopes: one low price of the medium price range, one in the high in the medium price range and two low in the high price range. Yes, to be fair, I put this guy against the Nikon Monarch 82mm, the Kowa TSN-773 77mm and the Kowa TSN-883 88mm.
Two stars for the ability to see distant objects and the included case (I did not unpackage). Difficult to focus, stiff focusing. Not much light coming in to the eye. H E A V Y. I’m going to spend at least $500 more for better optics (ED vs, HD), less weight and easier focusing.
Tomorrow, with hope, it will be a typical PNW low light day and I can get out to compare the other scopes.
Celestron’s proprietary XLT fully multi-coated optics increase light transmission through the optical path to deliver crisp, high contrast images. Focus on a subject quickly, then fine tune the image using the dual focus mechanism with course and fine adjustments.
Get the whole picture using the rotating tripod mount. This mount rotates a full 360 and allows the eyepiece to be set in any viewing position. Get close to the action with a zoom up to 48x magnification or see the widest field of view at 16x.
Perfect for those who want performance in an easy-to-carry package, the 65mm objective design lets in plenty of light while keeping the overall size of the scope to a minimum.
The official spotting scope of the U. S. Armys XM110 Semi-Automatic Sniper System (SASS). The Multicoat 4 lens system optimizes light transmission for peak brightness, resolution, and contrast, even at the highest magnification settings.
Folded light path technology provides powerful magnification in a lightweight, compact design (just 12. 4″ long and 37 oz). The Front Focal reticle magnifies the reticle along with the image, so you can estimate range at any power setting using the Mil Dot or Tactical Milling Reticle.
The universal, -20 thread tripod attachment is standard. Digital camera compatible, it makes capturing images easy. The McCann Rail accessory allows you to adapt your spotting scope for night-vision and other accessories.
Accessories for the Mark 4 spotting scope give you powerful, performance enhancements for a variety of tactical situations and weather conditions. Includes a protective, soft-side case that remains on the spotting scope during viewing for maximum utility.
NIB factory sealed. Focus ring was so stiff that a smooth fluid motion to focus was nearly impossible. Ring would jerk from place to place, making a fine focus impossible. Returned to Leupold in OR for repair.
Upon return, focus ring was better (not great). But now at lower magnifications, several black spots were visible on its FFP. That is, the black spots would zoom in/out with power changes. Zooming high enough made black spots disappear off the edges of its field of view.
Returned to Leupold a 2nd time, now for dirty internal optics. Received back and black spots are gone, focus ring is usable but not as good as on their 12-40x60mm Gold Ring HD model (buy this instead).
Inspection of objective lens with a penlight shows some lint on one of its internal optics large lens. So now the dirty internal optics are still present, just not visible in its field of view. Very disappointed in Leupold’s original manufacturing poor quality in fabrication and QC before factory release.
I’m thinking about returning it for a 3rd time, but will call them for options. Very disappointed in the poor repair workmanship at Leupold in OR, fixing one problem and creating another, which wasn’t totally fixed.
Buy something other than Leupold as their quality isn’t what it used to be, in manufacture and warranty repair services.
Based upon advice from the instructor, I purchased this milling capable spotter for a long range rifle course I recently took in West Virginia. As expected the Leopold Mark 4 spotter is a seriously outstanding piece of kit and the mils made it much easier to call corrections when it was my turn to spot.
I found the mils to be accurate and precise and the adjustments to be well thought out and executed. It even comes with a great fabric cover that once stretched in place (it is a TIGHT fit by design but it will go on there eventually!) performs its protective role very well.
It is very easy and quick to go from covered lenses to operational. Great design! I look forward to using to chase muleys out west once I draw a tag! You won’t regret purchasing this spotting scope.
The Viper HD 15-45×65 Angled Spotting Scope is packed with features for incredible glassing and high end optical performance. The HD optical system comprised of premium components generates vivid high-definition images.
XR anti-reflective coatings on exterior surfaces help obtain brighter views in low-light situations. The smooth helical focus helps dial in your image for ultra-sharp viewing and maintains a trim profile for ultimate packability.
A built-in sunshade pulls out to help reduce glare. A multi-position eyecup provides proper eye relief while a locking collar allows the scope to rotate into different viewing positions. O-ring sealed and argon purged, the Viper delivers waterproof and fogproof performance.
Armortek coatings protect the lenses from oil, scratches, and dirt. Rubber armor enhances both durability and grip for the user.
Vortex Diamondback HD 16-48×65 Straight Spotting Scopes are the easiest to pack of all the Diamondback HD spotting scopes. Their straight body and lack of protruding focus knob facilitate packing and unpacking.
Focus is accomplished by a helical collar focus mechanism. Optically, their 65mm objective lens and Vortex’s HD Optical System deliver more light, more contrast, and truer color than previous models.
Diamondback HD spotting scopes are waterproof and argon purged for internally fog-free viewing, and the external lens surfaces are coated with ArmorTek scratch-resistant and water repellent coating.
I purchased another name brand spotter and just wasn’t satisfied with the clarity at higher powers. Checked out the Diamondback HD 20-60×85 at a store. Salesman and I took it outside to check it out.
The eyepiece and eye relief were definitely better than the brand I had purchased the week before. Clarity of view at all power settings was a lot better with the Vortex. Surprisingly good for a spotter in its price range.
I took the other brand I had purchased the week prior and bought the Vortex Diamondback HD 20-60×85 angled. Love it. I highly recommend it. You won’t be disappointed!.
Simmons ProSport 20-60 x 60mm Waterproof/Fogproof Spotting Scope with Tripod – 712060 Simmons ProSport 20-60 x 60mm Waterproof/Fogproof Spotting Scope w/ Tripod is ideal for use in the field, at the shooting range or for bird watching.
It provides excellent targeting results with brilliant light transmission and sharp optical performance. It’s also water and fog proof and features durable rubber armor housing for grip and protection.

It has BK7 prisms to enable brilliant light transmission, plus a wide range of magnifications and configurations. Durable Construction This is a waterproof, nitrogen purged and fully fogproof product.
It’s equipped with rubber armor coating to improve the grip and protection of the scope. Included Accessories The Simmons 20-60×60 Spotting Scope comes with a tripod and a soft case for easy carrying and protection.
Like most people mention the tri pod isn’t great but it’s alright for what the package costs. The scope is a definite value, from almost 5 miles away I could spot a bull elk from a cow elk against the snow couldn’t count points but damn that’s a long ways away.
Could count points on deer from almost 1 mile away against the snow. For around $100 this is a real deal.
I haven’t used many spotting scopes. But where many options are hundreds of dollars and I’m thrifty I wanted something sub $100. This seemed to have the best reviews under $100 so I gave it a try. I got done with my 1st range day with it and I’m happy to report it’s well worth the money.
It’s extremely clear and bright and the magnification is plenty. I got an adapter to put my phone on the eyepiece. Zoomed in to 60x looking at a target at 100 yards the paper fills most of the view and you can clearly see the holes and fine details.
The tripod it comes with is much smaller/shorter than it looks in the photos but I suppose it would work. I used a normal camera tripod I had laying around since the scope takes a normal 1/4″ tripod stud.
The Nikon Fieldscope ED50 series models feature 50mm objective lenses to accommodate the demands for more compact, light, portable and affordable models. The ED glass used for their objective lenses compensates for chromatic aberration and results in bright, clear views.
Waterproof construction with nitrogen gas filling makes these models fog-free when subjected to wet weather and sudden temperature changes.
When I started shopping around for a new scope, I was planning on spending the Big Bucks on a Kowa, Swarovski, Leica or Zeiss. Something with an 80 + mm objective and costing three, maybe four grand.
I wandered around the net for a few days and read all the reviews on the camera store sites and then I checked the review charts published by the birdwatching magazines. I kept seeing raves about the small Nikon ED-50 A.
Lots of them. One of the charts had the ED-50 A rated about fourth of ALL scopes including the high-end monsters. It even rated MUCH higher than all the bigger and more expensive Nikons. Being the skeptical and cynical type (working enforcement for EPA will do that to you), I had a hard time believing that something with a 50mm objective would bring in enough light.
And, in general, the bigger scopes have a sharper focus than the small ones. But it was only xxx hundred bucks and B & H Photo said I could return it within ten days. Bought it, tested it, loved it. Real, true, deep, abiding, and passionate love.
It does everything that Nikon’s product description says it does. Small, extremely sharp, easy to focus, waterproof, and beyond-belief bright. But the best feature is that you can put it in your pocket.
Literally. The issue with larger scopes is that they require big tripods and the whole rig can get very heavy and ponderous. Hard to stash in a car and rough on your shoulders in the field. The ED-50 A does just fine on a small tripod (Vanguard or Manfrotto – something that costs around $100) and that means YOU WON’T LEAVE IT AT HOME.
The eyepiece only goes up to 30X but in nearly every situation, that’s more than enough. I’ve found that unless viewing conditions are perfect, zooming in past 30X just gives you a bigger hawk in the eyepiece.
It don’t get any clearer. One small irritant. The eyepiece is angled up from a straight-on view which makes it a bit more difficult find your subject. This is a common hassle for all angled scopes. But the ED-50 A is also angled slightly right-to-left.
This means that when the scope is pointed at a distant duck and you look down the line of the eyepiece, you are looking about ten degrees left of where the main barrel of the scope is pointing. This is a needless design flaw and it takes some getting used to.
And I’m not quite there yet. Despite that minor issue, I really, really like this device. Highly recommended. Cheers, Bill.
Christmas present so still new. It came much faster than expected and in great condition. I took it out to view waterfowl with other birders Mine was the smallest and lightest scope in the group so great for field work.
I used it handheld and passed it around. Wow was the unanimous reaction. Super clear and bright. Focus is easy to use. I ordered a handholding case and will also try with monopod and light tripod depending on trip.
I chose straight scope because other reviewers stated optics were brighter for this compact beauty than in the angles version. I have not compared them. It would be easy to window mount if desired. Many reviewers have recommended sliced wide angle eyepieces for better field of view but the zoom lens is quite good as is.
I used without eyeglasses and I think the fold down eye cup could be annoying to those who switch back and forth. The case is great for carrying but you cannot use the scope without removing it entirely.
This little gem will go virtually anywhere I can so I am looking forward to lots of use.
This scope has very good image quality and is small and less expensive compared to scopes with similar quality. Just what I wanted! My friend bought an expensive 65mm scope of a different brand without ED glass, and the image had strong magenta frames around all objects on the horizon.
Not so with this scope, the image is clear like water. Also, with a 50mm objective lens it is brighter at 30x than any 60mm or even 85mm scope is at 60x zoom. Very light weight makes it convenient to carry in any situation, even if you are going long distances over steep terrain and need to save your pack weight for other things.
I just carried it up a steep mountain where I found an old undisturbed wreck that proved no one had been there in at least 25 years. Downsides: -working the zoom and focus isn’t as intuitive as I would like.
-lens caps keep falling off, I replaced the objective lens cap with a screw on aluminum lens cap after I lost it, much better, never falls off. The eye lens cap still falls off because I haven’t lost it yet.
-not quite as sharp at 30x zoom as at 13x, but I should point out that this is a) not that big a deal, b) common even on very expensive zoom lenses, and c) you can replace the 13x-30x eyepiece with a fixed 27x eyepiece with great image quality (more than enough to make up for the reduced x) if it is important to you.
The most technologically advanced spotting scope developed by the innovators at Vanguard. Extra-low dispersion glass ensures each scope produces accurate color rendition and virtually eliminates color fringing.
The BaK-4 roof-prism lenses are fully multicoated to maximize light transmission. The eyepiece zooms from 15-45X on the 65mm models and 20-60X on the 82mm. All models are built on a rugged rubber-armored magnesium body and are fully submersible, nitrogen filled and fogproof.
An extendable rubber-covered eyepiece makes them easy to use even when wearing eyeglasses. Plus, all Vanguard Endeavor spotting scopes have impressive eye relief, even at the highest zoom settings. A built-in sunshade eliminates glare in direct sunlight.
Fine and coarse focusing wheels make precision focus quick and easy. Each spotting scope either mounts directly to Vanguard tripod heads or is equipped with a universal mounting plate.
I watch birds and really needed a scope to be able to better identify shore/lake birds as my bino’s weren’t giving me the reach I required. I wanted to spend less than $1,000 on my first scope, although I recognized my budget scope wouldn’t be able to compete with the Swaro’s I had tried out from friends.
I read some birding reviews that spoke highly of this scope. I am Canadian and worried about brokerage fees and duty costs, but B & H gave me a quote so I knew what the total cost would be before purchase.
The scope took 4 days to arrive, and cost exactly what I was quoted (no additional brokerage fees), it came with a rain cover and a nice added insulated Klean Kanteen mug as an extra. Even in American funds, it was cheaper than what it would have cost if I purchased it in Canada.
I am so happy with this scope, it performs exactly how I expected it to based on reviews. At full zoom, the image is slightly soft, and in low light, the image is not as clear, however, I am able to see shorebirds so much better now, and get a much further reach then what I was able to with my bino’s.
Very impressed at what you get for the cost. It is a great entry level scope for a birder on a budget.
Robust, easy to use, super clear and crisp image. Nice features like the ability to rotate the scope to turn the eyepiece towards you whilst keeping the sight trained on the same spot. Also very pleased with the inbuilt rubber sun shield/hood and adjustable eye piece.
Easy to adjust and fine tune focus. Best scope I’ve ever used for target archery. The target feels as if it’s at the end of my nose in HD!.

The nikon 20-60×82 monarch ed spotting scope offers a contrast-rich and color-accurate image, while maintaining edge-to-edge sharpness due to field flattener technology. Equipped with an 82mm objective lens that gathers ample light and a 20-60x zoom eyepiece, this angled-viewing scope is suited to a wide range of uses.
Multi-layer coatings on the lenses and prisms provide bright detailed views, even in low-light conditions. The focusing ring permits fine adjustment for distant subjects and coarse adjustment for nearby subjects.
Weather and temperature changes won”t interfere with your glassing the monarch”s body and eyepieces are waterproof and the body is nitrogen-filled to prevent fogging and condensation. The monarch fieldscope body, constructed of robust aluminum alloy, provides durability, reliability and ease of operation.
Other ergonomic features such as the specific knurling pattern on the focusing ring enhances its operability. The type 1 bayonet mount with locking system makes eyepiece attachment/detachment easy and secure.
I have never owned a spotting scope before but have used a few on trips and for work. This Nikon Monarch scope provides sharp views and is easy to use. On my first outing I captured a few shots and video of a Red-tailed Hawk with my phone through the lens.
I appreciate the cover that came with it and the carrying strap, as it does have some weight to it, especially when combined with a tripod. Looking forward to getting outside with it more often.
Prominar spotting scopes from Kowa kick up the performance level by using an XD objective lens with low dispersion properties to diminish chromatic aberration. The large objective lens offers terrific light-gathering power for long distances and low light settings.
Kowa engineers offset the length and weight associated with a large objective lens by incorporating an inner focus system and a magnesium alloy body. With the eyepiece locking mechanism, the eyepiece securely attaches to the body and reduces the risk of loss.
The waterproof and fogproof body adds protection from rain and temperature fluctuations. Optical Features Extra-low Dispersion (XD) Glass Enhances resolution, color, and contrast. Fully Multi-coated Lenses Increase light transmission with multiple anti-reflective coatings on all air-to-glass surfaces.
BaK-4 Prisms Optimize light transmission through the prisms. Construction Features Porro Prism Offer maximum image quality and durability in a traditional design. Angled Body Design Is favored by users of different heights for viewing without adjusting the tripod height as frequently.
The angled design works well when viewing at an upward angle. Magnesium Alloy Body Is sturdy and resistant to corrosion. Rubber Armoring Provides a secure, non-slip grip. Adjustable Eyecup Twists up and down for comfortable viewing with or without eyeglasses.
Sunshade Reduces glare and shields the objective lens from raindrops. Rotating Tripod Ring Allows greater flexibility when positioning the spotting scope. Design Features Waterproof Optics are sealed with O-rings to prevent moisture, dust, and debris from getting inside the spotting scope.
Fogproof Barrel is filled with nitrogen gas to inhibit internal fogging. Demo products do not always include the same accessories as new products.
OK, I’m very picky about optics. Been a large format photographer for about 3 decade, worked with MF, use densitometers and resolution targets – you get the idea, a persnickety and annoying sod. Also somewhat sensitive to optical properties.
Selecting a spotting scope obviously depends upon the ultimate use of the scope – a skywatcher would probably have a different set of criteria from a birdwatcher who might have a different set of criteria from a hunter or hiker planning on wandering into the wild.
That large front objective would make this more suited to the person who needs to deal with low light and needs some serious light gathering ability. An 88mm objective is large enough to be a serious contender in low light situations and I would imagine that would be the kind of person this was intended for – skywatchers who want to fly with a telscope and can’t/won’t carry overlarge Dobsonians etc.
, astrophotographers, birders and hunters who like to work the dawn and twilight hours etc. You would be very hard pressed to find a better performing optic. I’ve looked through my share of ‘bad’ and ‘middling’ glass and can usually recognize them.
The view through these is outstanding, easily among the best I’ve looked through (and I’ve used a variety of camera lenses ranging from ancient rectilinears to Protars and Dagors to apochromatic designs and plasmats, I’ve looked through Zeiss, Leica, Sony, Schneider, Rodenstock, Fujinon etc.
glass). That humungous fluorite crystal coupled with superb design, good quality control and excellent coatings has achieved two very important things – increased transmission and reduced aberrations.
The result is a superby crisp image in the eyepiece. I was able to easily resolve Jupiter and the Galilean moons even at low magnifications. That actually is a task that can be sometimes achieved in some good quality binoculars but one of the moons was just tangential to the giant sphere of Jupiter.
Still separately resolved. More importantly, everything appeared like marbles rather than flat discs. And all this was achieved with all the light pollution spilling from a moon a few degrees away. Saturn resolved into an equally clear disc sorrounded by the ring.
Terrestrial viewing is equally crisp and clear and that quality extends across the whole field. I can see why Kowa stuff is so beloved by birders. To my eye, the cast is ever so slightly warm. The ergonomics is excellent.
The magnesium alloy body keeps the weight reasonable for such a large scope – I have flown with it, it is quite handily transportable, compared to SCT type of telescopes. If you buy the case, it is very intelligently designed (even if it does not give you that sense immediately – the subtle intelligence is realized with use) and makes carrying this very easy.
The sealed and purged body keep everything fogproof and moistureproof. The twin focus knobs are genius and have the right amount of resistance. Fall under the hand perfectly – rough focus wheel to quickly get in the ballpark and fine focus wheel to get the image to snap into focus.
An integrated lens hood/sunshade that slides out when needed. An excellent tripod mount that keeps everything very well balanced (yeah, put it on a tripod unless you are trying to look like those 80s action stars like Rambo or Schwarznegger).
A knob to let you rotate the eyepiece into the most convenient position – particularly handy when you have poeple of different heights taking turns to look through the scope. More importantly, the whole Kowa system is very intelligently designed to work quickly and easily.
Superb eyepieces (also sealed and purged) matched to the objective, an extender (which presumably functions like a traditional Barlow on a telescope), camera, cellphone and digiscoping accessories. And nothing feels like an afterthought with some over-elaborate method of attachment.
Everything snaps and locks into place – it takes just a few minutes (seconds!) to get things swapped and set up. This has clearly been thought through carefully. This technology has reached a stage where it provides superb results.
It is also a technology that feels very compatible to the human body (unlike electronic stuff that feels just a bit alien and more importantly and perhaps by design, is still in the throes of constant obsolescence).
So, this scope is going to feel like home for years, probably decades. And that somewhat inexplicable part is important. I mean, a 3 1/2 terrestrially bound telescope is not going to give you the same sort of picture that something like The Hubble or James Webb can.
And you can easily open your iPad and see those pictures. But to be out on a crisp night and look through a tube holding a few bits of glass and seeing something that far off is a strange wordless experience.
A strange cocktail of achievement and awe and that strange sense of loneliness in looking at distant worlds across the yawning gulfs of space that lie between us.
I upgraded from the Viper Vortex 65mm 15-45X to this combo. I’ve been able to test a few times in the field now, at long distance and in low light. The image is more clear to the edges, with wider field of view, at higher magnification, with more light, so it’s the best of all worlds.
The scope isn’t significantly heavier due to use of lighter metals. It’s a little larger but not bad. I was worried I’d have buyer’s remorse paying so much more but really enjoying it so far. I particularly like the focusing mechanism with the fast and fine focus knobs.
The only thing I might change is adding some more friction/resistance to the fine focus knob so it holds a little better. I also wish this came with a lifetime guarantee like the viper vortex line. I bought the extra neoprene sleeve to try and protect against drops.
Leupold SX-4 Pro Guide 20-60×85 HD Straight Spotting Scopes are built with a rugged magnesium body that is rubber armored, water- and fogproof, have an extra-large eyepiece for viewing comfort, a helical focus mechanism, rotating mount foot, integrated sunshade, and a twist-up eyecup.
Leupold’s Twilight Max HD Light Management System adds up to 30 extra minutes of viewing time, removes 90% of the stray light, and have premium high definition glass. The external lens surfaces have Guard-Ion coatings that sheds dirt and water, and resists scratching.
I’ve put Leupold products on all of my rifles since 1981. The quality of the glass and reliable mechanics had made me a long time fan. It was a no-brainer to look to Leupold for a spotting scope. It pains me to say that this product is underwhelming, especially the clarity of the optics.
I expected similar quality glass as that found in my VX-III. Not even close. Is this product sufficient to spot rounds on target – Sure. I’m glad I’m not using this as a telephoto platform. All of the picture would have that Vaseline, fuzzy quality popular with pictures of starlets from the 1950.
I’m glad that I decided to spend the small amount of money it cost me to upgrade to the 80 mm lens. It really lets in a large amount of light and the anti fog lives up to its word. This is probably the first leupold optic I have ever purchased in my life.
It will get plenty of use. Mostly wildlife, but I actually brought it outdoors in the middle of the night and watched the eclipse (blood moon) just this past week. The clarity is fantastic. Both the zoom and eye adjustment dials are very smooth turning and allow for a gentle grip.
Dawn and dusk are often the most important times on a hunt. Simmons venture spotting scopes bring sharp, bright Images, especially at those critical times. The fully-multi coated optics transmit maximum light to the eyepiece, which is crucial in those critical low-light conditions.
Simmons venture spotting scopes are the complete package, priced for every Hunter. A tripod, hard carrying case and soft carrying case are included.
I bought this last month. The reviews were good as was the price. I’m sorry I bought it. It works ok at 20x but higher settings are hard to focus. The tripod is terrible, the slightest touch gets it off target.
I bought it for the shooting range and it’s hard to tell where the shots are going at 75 yards and further. I’m going to try to return it if I haven’t waited too long.
I’m only giving this 4 stars because other than taking it out of the box and looking through it briefly, I have not had a chance to take it out in the field for star gazing or spotting for deer. It seems well made, bigger than what I expected and I’ve owned Simmons products before and had good success with them so when I finally get it out and use it, I’ll update my review.
In conclusion, the 6. 5 creedmoor hunting rifle is an excellent choice for hunters who are looking for a reliable and accurate rifle that is capable of taking down large game animals. With its high velocity and flat trajectory, the 6.
5 creedmoor is an ideal choice for hunting in open country environments where long range shots are often required.
