Whether you’re looking to get a close-up view of wildlife or spot a target at the range, it is important to have a set of optics that can provide you with a high quality image at any magnification. The Barska Benchmark Spotting Scope provides this type of quality optics with a powerful 25-125x magnification zoom range and a large 88mm objective lens for improved light transmission and clarity.
The Benchmark Spotter is well-suited for years of outdoor use. An o-ring seal and nitrogen purged construction provides full waterproof and fog proof protection, while a protective rubber coating helps protect the spotter from external damage.
A number of great accessories are also included with this Benchmark spotting scope. A hard and soft case help protect the spotter during storage or transport, and a portable pan-head tabletop tripod allows for stable viewing at any magnification. The Benchmark spotter also comes with an Accu-Grip mount that attaches to the bottom of the spotter for quick on-the-go viewing.

I use this for marine watching at my beach house. The resolution is clear and the scope feels solid. It is difficult to focus at the highest power but if you start at the lowest power and adjust focus each time you go up in magnification, it becomes a lot easier. I can see the lighthouse 5-6 miles down the road with this. Really a great combination of quality and affordability!
