This scope was suggested as a great way to get into a scope suitable for long range work without spending several thousand dollars. I've only had it for a few weeks, if that, but I've been impressed with the glass and how solid the turrets are. Thought this picture might be helpful to anyone considering this scope or trying to compare. Here's a picture through the scope with an iPhone 4S, just before 7pm EST tonight, at an intersection that's two miles away according to Google Maps. Notice the motorcyclist facings south on the road running generally the same direction of view. Again, this is a cell phone picture.
