    Comments about Alpen 20-60x80 Angled Body Waterproof Spotting Scope:

    As good as scopes two or three times the price.

    At a half mile a buffy on the water is clearly a bufflehead. But a scoter may be whitewinged or a surf. You can differentiate between common and red breasted merganzers at a half mile.

    It starts to blur on the rim at about 50X and by 60X it is pretty bad. Consider the price and it is pushing the limits of accptability. So use it at 50X.

    At less than 50 yard not much better than 8X40 binoculars but blows them away after 125 yards.

    Better in low light than I expected but keep it lower magnification.

        This is the best that you are going to find without breaking the bank. Great look, bright lense and great eye relief. The carrying case is where you save some of your money.

          Comments about Alpen 20-60x80 Angled Body Waterproof Spotting Scope:

          We decided to buy a spotting scope after a friend showed us theirs. He had researched and chosen very carefully, so I started to follow his recommendation - but then learned that his scope cost over $1,800, way too much for our budget. So, after considerable NET research, selected the Alpen. It has been a good purchase. Easy to zoom and focus. We do need to upgrade our tripod to really take advantage of the scope.

          Alpen Scope For Birding

          By David Lovett

          from Undisclosed

          Comments about Alpen 20-60x80 Angled Body Waterproof Spotting Scope:

          I purchased this scope primarily for birding and mounted it on an existing bogen tripod. For the price this scope is everything I hoped for. Although not in the class of scopes costing $1200 or more, these optics provide a very good image for a moderate price. Itis easy to focus and use. All in all an excelent value.

          Customer Q & A

          Q1: can this scope be fitted with a digital camera adaptor

          A: Yes, it will. The adapters that you need will depend specifically on what camera you are trying to use.

          Q2: Would it except a Canon 10D digital camera. And what does the adaptors cost.

          A: i am sorry but this spotting scope is not designed to accept a camer using standard attachment.

          Q3: Does this scope have a fold-down or twist-up eye cup?

          A: The eyecups are of the fold-down variety.
