It arrived in a very timely manner considering it was ordered over the Christmas period and was very well packed and addressed.
Upon opening the parcel everything listed was present and undamaged. The addition of a tight fitting cover which can be opened at each end is a nice touch. I have not had a lot of time with the scope yet but first impressions are that it gives a very acceptable image, which is better than expected for the price. As can be expected there can be problems with vibrations and heat haze (mirage) especially at the higher magnification. Adjustments are easy and intuitive.
The free tripod, depending on circumstances is workable, with fine tuning knobs for vertical and lateral movement. Vibration depends not only on the nature of the tripod but also what it is standing on. A coffee table with three large dogs in the vicinity are not the conditions for a stable platform. I believe that given a heavy duty tripod with a pan and tilt head and the addition of a home made sight of some sort (to home in on fast moving wildlife), this will prove to be a very useful piece of equipment. Can't wait to try out a camera on it.
