From Jake in California:
I was skeptical when I took a chance on this scope. I have looked through a Leica 77mm before and I knew what I wanted to see. At first I was concerned with the heat waves I was getting above 20/30x. However if you read the reviews on all high Euro scopes, they all pound sand on a hot day. I finally got this scope up in the hills at about 50 degrees and WoW! I zoomed in on a doe at about 800 yds. I could see where her hair was roughed up from walking through the brush. Sold! I was also skeptical of the angled eyepiece, but it makes it so easy to share from person to person and this scope easily rotates 90 degrees on its side for looking out your car window. Only drawback is size and weight.
