This scope is designed for, and only suited to viewing objects with a short depth of field such as targets or perching birds. Focus at 20x is adequate, but as soon as the eye piece is zoomed toward or beyond the mid point in the 20-60x range focus becomes problematic.
This product was advertised as a real great scope. I use it to look at mountains about 3-7 miles from my deck, and I use it from a tripod. The scope is good for medium distance, but when you zoom farther in, you start to see blurriness and color separation. Not great for a Nikon product.
I use the spotting scope to view birds as part of my research on endangered species and this scope is great! My older scope, the same model but two years older, has a narrower lens and doesn't let as much light in -- the new model is wider and lets in more light so see the finer details of leg bands...
Good scope for the money
For the money it is a good scope.
I purchased scope for scouting/hunting. If u plan on using window mount from vehicle get the straight model. The angled model is too high to use when mounted . I returned angled model. Waiting for straight to show up.
I bought this scope. Love it. Excellent quality for the price. Comes with a bikini. Downside is that at full zoom it is impossible to focus.
Finally received the scope after months on back order. Glad I purchased an angled scope after comparing to other peoples. Light weight. Optics are great. The eyepiece attachment seems too tight and takes some torque to install. After installation it is firm.
I've been using this daily for over two months and it's a good deal. The light does fall off considerably when zoomed to 50-60x but at this price you can't have it all. 50-60x is still useable.
I've owned and used Nikon cameras and binoculars for over 40 years, built darkrooms(remember those?)took photography in high school and college, and generally know good glass when I see it. I've been a birder as long, and am discerning about the equipment I use and own.
