Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good Buy I have had this scope for almost a year now. It is just what I expected for a product with the Leupold name. It gives me a clear image of bullet holes at 200 yards. I couldn't afford a $2000 spotting scope, and I've tried a cheap one that wasn't really usable. This is a quality scope at an affordable price.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great Entry Level Scope I've had this spotting scope for about three years. The optics are great. The included tripod leaves much to be desired. It is not heavy enough to hold the scope steady. So I began using my professional photographers tripod Bogen 3011 with a Manfrotto 3029 ball head. Its way better than the included tripod. However its big and very bulky. Then Leupold offered a table top tripod made of aluminum. So for another $80 I bought it and its much better. If Leupold still offers the flimsy tripod by the scope and aluminum tripod separately. The included case is a good one but not a great one. As I move into long distance shooting I will likely have to upgrade. But for every day shooting up to 200 yards this is your scope.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great bang for the buck! I purchased this spotting scope around 1.5-2 years ago. It has been to the range many times and still looks and functions like it is brand new. The case is okay, I only use it when I have a lot of gear or when I moved. Typically the soft case it also comes with works well for me. The tripod is nice if you want to sit the scope on a table, i would use the straight model, however, if I was going to use it on a table. Mine is typically on a larger tripod that works well with standing. About the scope, clear glass, the sun shade that pulls out is a nice feature for those early morning and afternoon shooting sessions. Eaily brought in to focus with the dial. Magnification is also easy to adjust. I like that it comes with end caps to cover the lenses during transport. All in all, very pleased and would purchase again.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing spotting scope This spotting scope is great for picking up all kinds of wildlife from dawn to dusk. The glass is bright and clear, works well in low light and doesn't glare in bright light. We have had no problems picking up game sized animals, or even birds in all light and weather conditions.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Customer Service I purchased a Leupold SX-1 Ventana Spotting Scope Kit from Cabelas (Bargain Cave, Discontinued Model) recently, and upon closer Inspection found that the Scope Mount Alignment pin was damaged. I contacted Cabelas and they said they would replace the damaged mount from another (New Spotting Scope Kit) if needed! I told them I would contact Leupold first and get back with them. I contacted Leupold and explained my situation, and they promptly sent me the a New Mount to fix the problem! I've personally been Buying these Folks Products since the early 80's. This is the Reason!!! I should also mention that this is the First and Only time I've had an Issue with any of Their Products! Well done Leupold! Thanks Again.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great glass! I managed to get the wife to let me order the ventana sx1 spotting scope kit for my birthday and I could say I have not one complaint. Great clarity, easy to focus, sturdy tripod! And it all fits into hard case.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Tripod NOT GOOD Tried to find contact information to tell the company of the flaw with the tripod sold with this spotting scope. Could not find customer support e-mail address or phone number. The optics are excellent but the tripod is too flimsy for this scope ( I believe the tilt bracket is UNFIT for such a great scope) With the Leupold name on the tripod I am VERY disappointed with the company.
