For a long time now, I’ve been wanting to replace my old, aging, spotting scope that I’ve had for a long time. It has long been not very good anymore. The Lens & Optics are very blurred and it just does not want to focus well anymore. It was a second hand scope that I bought years ago. I’m saying that it has gone to better day’s. It is no longer of use to me.
I’ve been looking around for a good one that has good, clear optics and a large viewing Lens. I found out that Spotting Scopes have changed over the years. They can get very expensive depending on what you buy. I didn’t want a real expensive one, but not a cheap one either. There are Scopes on the market for over $2000.00! Don’t need something that expensive. Most of the time you will get what you pay for.
So, after snooping around for a few day’s, I decided on this Gorski 20x80x80. It has a primary Lens of 80mm, a Lens cover front and back, waterproof, and coated optics for clear viewing. Has a Lens shade up front to shadow the sun if it’s too bright. You can also install a Filter, but I don’t think I’ll go that far for now.
It came with a Tripod Stand that is kinda cheap looking and does not seem to be too durable. It also has a attachment you can put on the back viewing eyepiece to install your Cell Phone and take a picture with it! Have not tried it out yet.
For now, I’m going to get some use out of this as soon as the weather get’s much better and warmer. I’m pretty sure that this will last for a long time.
