I also like it's field of view. I was actually watching 4 targets the last time out without moving the scope. These are 12" x 12 " targets.
I have a Schmidt and Bender 56mm scope and it's brightness and optics are actually better, but we are comparing a $2000 + set of optics to a < $500 set of optics. I also have a NightForce 56mm scope and I would compare it's brightness as a little better.
I have had quite a number of people use my scope for spotting and they are really amazed at it's performance vs cost. So I would say that if these guys would put in a MOA or mildot reticle, they could sell quite a few more to people who are in the sport of long distance shooting.
At 600 yds on a good day like the last, I think this would have been fine. But no matter what scope you get, there are going to be some days you just have to walk up.
The only reason I gave it 4 stars is that it doesn't have a hash reticle option, and the optics are really not the best. But I think price vs performance this is a keeper. So far I haven't run into anyone who could see something I couldn't.
The Chinese-made Ultima 80 spotting scope offers very good resolution and high light transmission at a bargain price. For those who don't demand the very best there is, the Ultima 80 represents a good value. It's well constructed, the controls operate smoothly, and the optical quality is very decent for the price point. Lenses are multicoated and the tube is waterproof. There's a slight amount of chromatic aberration and edge softness, but these have to be expected in this price range. Neither is bothersome for the vast majority of applications. What is bothersome is that eye relief is insufficient for eyeglass wearers at powers above 30x.
For nature study, the rifle range, or very casual astronomy, this is a good buy.
