I know its probably too late for suggestions,hopefully I purchased a good quality spotting scope. The price seemed right though its the military version of the bushnell Elite 15-45 60mm scope for only 279.99.(shipping included)Any one have a comments on this lower end of the Elite scopes?Thanks for any historical help.

Build quality is good

Image quality is decent, though not spectacular.

Eye relief is extremely short - especially for eyeglass wearers.

I agree with lucznik, but if it meet your requirements for your particular application than you did good.  If it does not than the more money you spend the better the scope buy cheap and you end up buying again down the road.

If you need more eye relief, try looking thru the Bushnell excursion.  I wear glasses and eye relief was a priority to me as was wide field of view and the excursion has both.  Currently, for the price of the Excursion, nothing comes close.  I may sound like I have stock in Bushnell, but I don't, I just a very satisfied customer.  I'm actually more than satisfied, I'm thrilled with what I got for the low price.

There is not such thing as an Ellite 6500 spotting scope.  The 6500 is a riflescope line.   If it is a riflescope you purchased, you should post your question in the riflescope forum.  It will get more attention there.

No worries.  It might take you a little searching to find them but Bushnell did offer 22x and 30x eyepieces for the 80mm Elite.  Either one would offer both longer eye relief and a wider FoV.
