    Comments about Barska 25-125x88 Benchmark Waterproof Spotting Scope:

    I must qualify myself as being an amateur photographer and a longtime lover of the shooting sports. I have long loved and used Nikon products for photography.

    I have taken this scope to the shooting range a couple of times. It takes some time to focus in at the higher powers because you focus it just like a SLR camera. The focus ring seems stiff and makes it hard to quick focus. Also a really good tripod would be a plus to make viewing at higher power a bit more steady. The little one that comes with the scope is barely suitable. The scope wants to fall over as the setup is not well balanced.

    Also I noticed some small imperfections in the glass. At first I thought it might be mold but later concluded it had to be from manufacturing. The glass quality is not Nikon by any means, but is plenty good for the shooting range. However if I was taking a scope to Montana, Colorado or Alaska on a hunt, I'd get a much more expensive model.

    For the shooting range, once focused on a distant target this works great for me. It saves me from those long walks to see how well I shot. I have used it at 100+ yards with the shoot N-C targets and it worked well. Plus the wife gets to use it for observing her birds and small animals.

    In summary, this is a good range scope but not suitable for hunting as the glass quality and difficulty in focusing will frustrate the user.

      Comments about Barska 25-125x88 Benchmark Waterproof Spotting Scope:

      Just recieved(fast shipping). Bought for use at the rifle range but can't get out till after Christmas. So I took it to the back yard. Wow! Really nice optics. Clear as a bell & great focus. Can't wait to get it on the bench. A great package with the really nice padded metal carrying case. The only shortcoming might be the light tripod. It seams to be a little light for a large scope. I'll know after I get it on a bench at the range. From what I can tell, very satisfied!!! Seams to be a great deal.

        Comments about Barska 25-125x88 Benchmark Waterproof Spotting Scope:

        I've had this for a couple weeks now and have had a chance to run it through it's paces. My biggest complaint is the way it's focused. Rather than a little wheel at the back, you turn the whole front end of the scope. This is how you manually focus an SLR camera, so I thought it would work great, but it is nearly impossible to hold the image steady while you focus, especially at high power. Otherwise I'd probably give this scope five stars. It is not razor sharp at 125X, but what other scope even goes this high? At the 25x-60x range of most other scopes, it is quite sharp. I'd say the optical performance for this price is phenominal. You'd probably have to pay at least twice this to get a significant improvement in optical performance, but you still wouldn't get the maximum power of this scope. I was looking at Longs Peak from a hill on the east side of Lafayette and I think I could have seen a person standing on the top, had there been one. I'm guessing the distance at between twenty and thirty miles.
