If you’re looking for a good cheap long-range spotter, don’t bother watching. This is a “dumpster diving” review of a budget spotter I’m only using for 50yrd pistol matches or 100yrd rifle matches. In this case, size and weight are key deciding factors.
The 13-40×50 GoSky is one of the best rated compact spotting scopes on Amazon (which doesn’t mean much since most of those reviews are fake or underinformed). It retails for about $99 but I purchased it on sale for $70 putting it closer in price to a SvBony SV28. Making this the best spotter I’ve tried that currently retails for under $100.
- Well built eye-piece with an independent rotating zoom dial.
- Good to Great optical clarity for a sub $100 “budget” spotting scope
- Nice geared tripod that works better than it looks
- Warm cast on image
- Cheap looking tripod
- Clunky company website with minimum info
