Excellent Spotting Scope!!!
on September 19, 2016
I researched a lot of spotting scopes before settling on this one. The description for this GoSky scope did not list the glass used and the numbers didn't add up right to me. I found the identical scope on ebay with two different branding names both from china like this one and all for about the same price (except the GoSky includes the digi-adapter). Both those ebay scopes have BK7 glass and the following numbers: 1200 grams weight, field of view 94ft@1000yds@20x and 53ft@1000yds@60x, eye relief 18-15mm and exit pupil 4-1.33mm. These numbers looked correct for this size scope. Based on the ebay info for the others I decided to order this GoSky spotting scope assuming its numbers would really match the others.
I'm glad I did! I found the weight to be 1200 grams just like the others so I believe the glass to be BK7 and I also believe the numbers to match the other ebay scopes. I also found the image quality to be excellent. It's crystal clear at 20x and the images are also quite clear at 60x when using the digi-adapter with my cell phone which takes pictures using voice commands. Remember that atmospheric effects (like heat waves) on image quality are amplified at higher powers. This affects all scopes.
So I find this GoSky to be an excellent, nicely featured, well built spotting scope. The price makes it simply unbeatable.
