Maybe I was a little unfair!
Regarding my earlier review, I also purchased a big brand name scope at well over double this price and although very good with a prime eyepiece it also suffered the same distortion when using a high magnification zoom type. I have come to the conclusion that zoom eyepieces are always going to be a compromise and that I may have unfairly judged the scope in the review.

Maybe I was expecting too much!
I bought this scope as I wanted my money to help the RSPB. I’m guessing from the familiarities that this item is made by Viking? It’s well made, light yet sturdy and even though it is an 80mm model, easy to transport. The focusing knob is very sensitive and would have preferred it set to one side instead of the middle top of the unit .... But that’s just my preference. The supplied “stay on “ case is well made and fits nicely. The lens cap is of the hard plastic clip in variety.
On the down side, the scope is only really useable up to about the 25x magnification as the image gets very blurry and dark even on the brightest of days. At the higher magnifications chromatic aberration is quite bad, almost to the point of having a second blue image to the primary one.
I expected a vast improvement over say, an Aldi £40 special but in reality it isn’t such a great difference. Maybe I received a Friday afternoon model, or expecting too much for the money.
RSPB response
Thank you for your review. We are sorry that you were disappointed with the performance of this scope at higher magnifications. We will pass this feedback to the product team to investigate.
