Gosky 13-40×50 Spotting Scope

with No Comments

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.

PRO

  • 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

CON

  • Warm cast on image
  • Cheap looking tripod
  • Clunky company website with minimum info
