  1. Margaret Brennan (verified owner)

    First spotting scope and very happy with purchase.. watched the 2 remaining west coast Scotland pod orcas John Coe and Aquarius with it from Ardnamurchan lighthouse for hours.. highly recommended

  2. Kay Murphy (verified owner)

    I already have Avalon bins and decided I needed a scope so thought I’d give this 80mm scope a try. I am really impressed with it. Crystal clear and easy to use. I had a fault with my Bins so contacted customer services and the problem was immediately resolved, absolutely fantastic. I would highly recommend Avalon, bins and scope

  3. Adrian Jacobs (verified owner)

    Fantastic customer service from Avalon. Very pleased with the scope. Image is crisp and clear, well made,carrying bag seems of good quality too. Glad I chose Avalon.

  4. Keith Murray (verified owner)

    This is a great spotting scope, it is very powerful and fabulous clarity. We will have lots of joy using this.

  5. S Kinniburgh (verified owner)

    Bought this as a special birthday gift for my adult son. He was delighted with the quality of the scope and is looking forward to using it for years to come.
    He hasn’t had the chance to try it out properly with his mobile and DSLR cameras as yet but his initial response was very positive. The complete package of scope, mini tripod and carrying bag was perfect, and at a very reasonable price….thank you!

  6. David Bluett (verified owner)

    I bought this to use when I need more magnification than the Avalon binoculars I bought last year. I have sea/beach views from where I live and the image quality is first class. I did find that I needed a much better tripod than the cheap one I had – this would apply to any spotting scope.
    Friends/Family who have used the scope also think it is a fantastic piece of kit.

  7. Geoff Yale (verified owner)

    Excellent piece of kit. Works well with the tripod and especially the phone adapter.All really good value for money.

  8. Ron (verified owner)

    Excellent service, very pleased with scope light weight and easy to use

  9. Chris Smallbones (verified owner)

    Easy to use and great clear image. Good views of the moon.

  10. William Somers (verified owner)

    Excellent service and excellent product.

  11. Elisabeth Haines

    Love it. We live on an escarpment with a view of the sea about seven kilometres away. There was little clarity with the binoculars and they were also heavy. The scope on it’s tripod is easy to manipulate and gives great detail. We now get great pleasure from watching the boating and wildlife antics in the area

  12. John Smith (verified owner)

    We are delighted with the scope and tripod as we look over the river forth we see a very large amount of different ships going up and down the river,At the moment we have 4cruise liners anchored across the river on the Edinburgh side because of the covid-19 the scope has been superb and has been used a great deal since it arrived.

  13. Grant Harrison

    Very pleased with this scope. The size is perfect for carrying around and it has great clarity. Using it for moon watching and the wildlife over the marshes where I live on the Isle Of Wight.
    Really enjoying it.

  14. Frank Demarco

    I am extremely happy with the spotting scope and enjoy viewing the passing boats from Mount Martha hills. The additional of the tripod makes it easy to shift position. Great product and customer service.

  15. Michael Orwin (verified owner)

    I purchased this scope to replace one of a different brand that I had to return as unsatisfactory. This one is very good; simple to use and fast focusing to a good clear picture. Like many middle of the road scopes the picture clarity falls off quite badly as the magnification is increased. I found up to about x30 satisfactory but after that, despite refocusing, a clear picture is difficult to establish. My only other observation is that it took three attempts to source a satisfactory tripod/mount combination that provides sufficient stability for steady viewing. I would recommend careful research and pricing because the scope is not usable without a good steady tripod/mount

  16. Nigel

    I purchased the spotting scope to replace a telescope we have on our apartment balcony and it was a fantastic replacement.

    The spotting scope out performs the telescope hands down. I would recommend this scope to anyone thinking of buying one.

  17. Vaughan Birbeck

    I live in an apartment with a view of the sea and enjoy ship-spotting. This telescope has proved ideal for viewing ships entering and leaving harbour and while at anchor. You can zoom in and identify very close details, the image is sharp and clear. Although not recommended for this it has been good for stargazing, too, with some very clear views of the moon and major planets (including Jupiter’s moons). I bought the recommended tripod and they make a very good combination. Delivered three days earlier than estimated, too. Great service.

  18. Barb Choat

    We are very pleased with our spotting scope. We also live high up on a hill over looking the Whangamata beach,out to Sea.
    The Scope suits this situation well and we are able to spot the boats coming in and out over the Bar as well as see quite clearly the larger ships out at sea. All in all we would recommend this product.
