                      I shoot blackpowder muzzleloaders at bulls eye and animal targets out to 100 yards. Great clairity and brightness to pick up .36 to .50 cal roundball holes in these targets. I could spend a lot more and get a lot less. Good scope.

                      I purchased this spotting scope for shooting and hunting. My 8 year old daughter likes it for star gazing and animal watching. It is durable enough for both, without having to worry about her ruining it, and the price allows me to give her the oppotunity to explore on her own. I would have liked to seen this come with a soft case for in the field, and the eyepiece could stand to be a little bigger for me. All in all I consider this product a great buy for the value minded.

                      Customer Q & A

                      Q1: Will I be able to spot the hits on the target at 100 yards and make adjustments without the long walk?

                      A: The Field of View @ 1000 Yards is 115 ft.@18x/75 ft.@36x. At 100yrds you're 18x is 11.5ft and at 36x you're looking at 7.5ft. With that type of range you'll have no problem working your adjustments without having to walk back and forth.

                      Q2: What is the minimum distance that this scope will focus on an object at 18X & 36X?

                      A: The minimum focusing distance for the Bushnell Sentry 18-36x50 Spotting Scope is 20 ft at 18x and 45 ft at 36x.
