            Comments about Celestron Ultima 20-60x80 Spotting Scope:

            I've owned several other scopes in the same price range as this one, but this one is the best by far. I mainly bought because of the low price on sell, but after using I wouldn't hessitate paying full price for it. I mainly use it for sighting in my varmint rifles and have no complaints.

                Comments about Celestron Ultima 20-60x80 Spotting Scope:

                I purchased this scope because of my interest in shooting, nature, and my recent new interest in digiscoping. For the money it's a great all around spotting scope. Only down side is it does not use any after market lenses. I ordered a Barlow lens to go along with it, only to find it will not work with this scope. If you want to play with different eyepieces, do not order this scope. Other wise it's a great scope

                    Used primarily for shooting at 200 yards and was suprised at the clarity. I visually compared it with other name brands in the price range and feel it was the best choice. Although not advertized the specifications state that it is waterproof. No mention is made about fogproof so I assume it's not. Focus adjustment is adequate.

                    Good optics, cheesy assembly, great price

                    Comments about Celestron Ultima 20-60x80 Spotting Scope:

                    For the money, this is generally a very good telescope. It isn't as rugged as B&L, Bushnell, or some other makes, and is not waterproof. Optically, it compares well with much higher-prices scopes. For birding, the images are bright and sharp. As with most scopes, there are flares and internal reflections visible in the field of view when viewing in the sun's azimuth. The 20-60x zoom eyepiece works well optically, but mechanically has a gritty feel when zooming. On mine, after just one month of use, the lower lens group became dislodged inside the eyepiece because of a loose set screw (I fixed this, but attempting this repair could void the warranty). Optically, this scope is surprisingly sharp and bright, especially when using it for birdwatching and other terrestrial subjects. The toughest test a scope can be put to is astronomical viewing. Here, this scope reveals some minor optical flaws, such as slight color fringes around star images, especially at the edges of the field of view. Nonetheless, in the center of the FOV, stars are rendered as bright, tack-sharp pinpricks. I had no trouble picking out bands on the surface of Jupiter, and seeing the gap between Saturn and its rings at 60x. The focussing is smooth, fast, an accurate. I especially like the 45 degree eyepiece, which allows a more comfortable viewing position when looking at anything high above the horizon. Overall, I highly recommend this scope as a good choice for the observer on a budget, but with this caution: treat it carefully. It isn't up to the bumping and grinding other more expensive scopes are, with their waterproof, nitrogen-charged, and armored bodies.

                    Customer Q & A

                    Q1: The product description for the Celestron Ultima 80 spotting scope lists 3.6 pounds as both the product weight and the shipping weight. Is this correct?

                    A: The product weight is correct which is why we list that as the shipping weight. the purchase of additional accessories will cause the shipping weight to change so to give the best deal possible we list it this way.
