Bought this spotting scope a few months ago and wanted to hold off on doing a review until I had some time using it. I now have that time, and let me tell you this was a big game changer for me. The clarity and picture is outstanding, not that heavy for what it is and coupling this with the VIP guarantee there is no question that this is worth its weight in gold!

Vastly exceeded my expectations!
I bought this to use as a spotting scope for archery, and it works better than any that I have ever used! The view is crisp and clean, and the focus works fantastically.
As a test when I got this scope, I decided to point it at the brightest star in the sky, to see if I could focus on something that far out. Turns out, I found Jupiter! You could clearly see the planet with 4 of its moons.
Recently, I decided to look for Saturn, since the orbits were more or less aligned and after some searching, I found it! I was pretty skeptical about being able to view something so far out, but you could clearly see that it was Saturn and its rings! I would recommend this scope to anyone as it has so many great uses!
I would add photos of my stargazing adventures, but I would have to search my phone for them :p.
Great quality and durability
I have had this scope for over a year and a half, and every time I use it amazes me. The optics are very clear and with the 80 mm objective lens, the picture is bright. The zoom does darken the image but that is expected with almost any spotting scope. Great quality for the price and a lifetime warranty! You can never go wrong with buying anything made by Vortex.
