The largest aperture scope in the Ultima line, the 100mm Ultima offers more than 50% brighter images than the 80mm, allowing for better performance in low light conditions. The 100mm refractor features excellent multi-coated optics packed into a portable and durable refractor design and comes standard with a 22-66x zoom eyepiece. This series was designed to perform well in a range of viewing situations, making it a great all-around optical instrument. Youll love it for observing nature and long distance spotting. The green rubber optical tube allows for subtle observation in any nature environment. Ultima spotters are a great companion for any nature or outdoor enthusiast.

Overall, the 80mm objective is an amazing scope at this price. No disappointments.
To supplement the binocs for birdwatching, I bought the Celestron scope.
Very glad I did, because now I have (at the very least) more than twice the magnification at about a fifth of the cost of the binocs.
The scope arrived today (I tried some else's recently) and I've experienced viewing pleasure. No birds around, but I'll probably be looking at the moon tonight.
Great value for the money.
At home - My neighbors are about 1.3 miles away. The best scopes you could identify eyes and ears on a clear day. The lower end scopes you can tell there is a house and that there is an animal in the yard. The middle of ground scopes you could tell what kind of animal is in the yard and distinguish people walking around easily.
This scope was able to almost identify 4 inch features on a human. You were able to see their dogs and would be able to distinguish breed for the most part.
I only tested this scope, it's a Celestron, same maker of my childhood telescope. It was a 7% illuminated on a clear Colorado evening. I could easily distinguish craters and surface features.
The scope is larger than I thought it would be and will be hard to keep in my bag for hunting. Great for trip
This is a must buy for a spotting scope. I am going to buy this for a present for my parents who live with great views of wildlife and unobstructed mountains.
A nylon carrying bag is a provided but it is not protective in the sense of drops or shock. The covers for the objective and eyepiece are rudimentary.
This scope doesn't come with a tripod. It needs a heavyweight stable base to work well, particularly at high magnification. This has a stabilizing bar that gives a more secure feel.
The zoom is functional, and it does work out to the highest level. However, due to effects of sun, it can make for an indistinct view. The focus is adjusted in the front part of the body. The zoom is adjusted just under the eyepiece. For the money, it's a great quality scope. It's not a Swarovski or Vortex, but it's good enough for me.
I can sight buildings and tractor trailer trucks several miles away. I can see the street conditions a few miles away. The scope works well out to 150 yards. There weren't any targets available at 250 yards. I could see shoot and see hits very distinctly.
The biggest and major negative is size and weight. It's bigger than the average more practical scope, but I'm adaptable. I purchased a large carbon fiber tripod for this and it works extremely well.
Overall, I'm very pleased.
