Anybody using this scope?  I can get one with a 20-45 eyepiece pretty cheap but can't find much info on it.  If their spotters are as good as their binos I expect I would be happy with it.

I had one of these and it was a good but not great scope.  The picture was bright with good definition up until the upper limits of the power range, say from 40-45x.  It was also very light and portable.  Unfortunately, it had an angled eyepiece and it just didn't work for my needs so it had to get returned.

 

For what its worth I recently test drove the Pentax PF65ED w/ 20-60x eyepiece and it was noticeably better than the Minox, especially at the higher magnifications.  Not sure what price you can get the Minox for, but the Pentax is a better scope IMHO and they are usually in the same ballpark on price.

I am not shurre about the Minox but I picked up a Nikon FS ED III Tac at a exellent price and I am very pleased with that spoter.
