I'm looking for a new spotting scope in the 20-60x80 range for about $400.00. I have narrowed it down to two choices. The Alpen 788 and the Bushnell Legend, they both pretty much have the same features,and there isn't much difference in price. My question is in the quality and clareity of the glass. Anybody have any experience with either one,or any other comments or suggestions?

I have an Alpen that I no longer use, it ain't bad, it ain't great.  Seeing bullet holes at 300 yards (from a .30cal) is no problem, but past that, it falls off.

I have no experience with the Bushnell.  For the money, the Alpen is not bad, not great.


Sorry I cannot offer more.

Thanks RC! Think you could see a 223 at 300 or a 30 at 400 with light mirage?
