Sweet optics, best I own. by Shane O. on 2011-01-09 20:46:49
5 of 5 - Excellent
Good value, strudy construction and I like the fact it came with a tabletop tripod.
The only con I found was I didn't buy these sooner.
I bought these optics for Star Gazing, I have not been disapointed. They offer crisp and clear images. Very mobile as I live in the mountains, so packing them around is no problem. Looking into purchasing a Barska Telescope next.
