        Comments about Barska 8-24x58 Benchmark DFS Waterproof Spotting Scope:

        I purchased this scope for Bullseye pistol competition. It offers ample magnification with a bright crisp image and is small enough and light enough to easily mount on the lid of my pistol box.

            Comments about Barska 8-24x58 Benchmark DFS Waterproof Spotting Scope:

            The scope is being used at my workplace to read electric meters from a distance/outside of yards. The clarity of the scope is excellent and the magnification is very good. However, if the scope is bumped against something or is dropped only once, one of the prisms inside the scope breaks loose making the scope useless. There is no way to get inside to make any repairs.

            Comments about Barska 8-24x58 Benchmark DFS Waterproof Spotting Scope:

            Very good quality product and performs as expected because I studied and understood the specifications. We use it for bird watching on our 2 acre back yard.

            Customer Q & A

            Q1: 1. How much eye relief do I need with eyeglases? This has 19 mm at 8x but what is it at 24x? 2. Is there a scope like this but angled?

            A: Hi Mr. Wells, thank you for your email. The eye relief at 24x magnification is 14.5 mm. So, it should still easily accomodate eyeglasses. (I recommend 13mm or higher) And this is a pretty rare scope (especially for the price) so there is not a model similar with an angled eyepiece. Sorry! Best Regards, Denny
