Best scope for the money! I have been using my Vortex Diamondback spotting scope both at the range and at home. It comes with a fitted neoprene cover, and lens covers to keep it protected. On a sunny day I was able to see bullet impacts and holes on paper at 600 yds. I am still breaking it in and will test it on a eastern Colorado pronghorn hunt in a few weeks! I recommend everyone who needs a spotter under $500 to buy this one!
