I just received my first spotting scope, a compact Minox 15X30X50 and must say Doug was spot on. This is the second purchase from CameralandNY and both have exceeded my expectations. This is small (lightweight) for pack-in, yet clear and bright. I am still learning the fine tune adjustments, but that will come with time. I have a Minox Za5 riflescope on the way and hope it delivers as well. For the demo price, I think this is a great buy! Just wanted to give an 'ata boy' to Doug and Minox.
