Advantages

The Gosky Porro Prism Spotting Scope has many features to boast and several benefits to offer its viewers, with brighter and clearer image quality on the top of the list. This spotting scope has an 80mm green film fully multi-coated objective lens.

 

The fully multi-coated quality of the objective lens makes sure that there is a fast transmission of light; a feature that is important in making sure that the quality of the image is still good despite the spotting scope being powered at high magnification.

 

Normally, the higher the magnification, the lower the image quality becomes. Such a scenario can be avoided with the help of the lens coating of this spotting scope.

 

Another nice feature of this spotting scope is the variable magnification that allows, unlike a static pair of binoculars, adjustment as the circumstances call for it. Magnification can be done from 20x to 60x and most applications can be set to the magnification level of 40x.

 

Yet another nice feature of this spotting scope is its dynamic lens focusing system that allows its viewers to zoom in on their target or a certain object for further detail. Such a feature makes the viewing experience of the owner better and makes the spotting scope a good viewing device where a camera can be easily attached.

 

To add, it is good to note that the spotting scope comes with a digiscoping cell phone adapter that enables the viewer to use the device with a cell phone to record videos and save images. Using the spotting scope has been made more convenient and versatile for electronic attachments.

 

The durability of this spotting scope has also been reinforced by its durable framework made of magnalium. Such material ensures that the spotting scope has the ability to withstand tough weather situations.

 

In addition, the spotting scope has a rubber absorber that acts as a shock absorber for the device for optimum protection. Also, for better protection of this viewing instrument, the eyepiece shield that comes with the spotting scope can be stretched out for maximum protection of the eyepiece.

 

The spotting scope is not made durable merely on the basis of its build. The spotting scope has an additional waterproof design to make sure that the device is safe from the negative effects of being exposed to water.

Disadvantages

If the Gosky Porro Prism Spotting Scope has several benefits to offer, it also comes with a number of downsides that each and every interested buyer should know of. One such issue is the low light gathering of the spotting scope.

 

Also, the tripod that comes with the spotting scope is not made of good materials which could pose a problem for others. Also, setting up the spotting scope with a phone can become a little tricky and would entail one to spend more time in the set-up process.

 

Also, the spotting scope may come with an adapter but the device is a little hard to adjust with a cell phone. The adjustment process would take a little time and more adjustments.

 

Finally, the spotting scope only comes with a small sheet of instructions but not with a manual to instruct how the spotting scope should be used. The presence of the manual would have made using the spotting scope, especially for the first-timers, better.

Conclusion

For the price one has to pay, one can get a good spotting scope in the likes of the Gosky Porro Prism Spotting Scope. Like most products, this spotting scope has some issues that need to be considered very carefully by would-be buyers but the listed downsides of the spotting scope are not enough to deter buyers.

 

This spotting scope is one that can perform as expected and is solid enough for entry-level users to enjoy.
