I was wondering if anyone has any knowledge of what kind of optics Zhumell makes? I have a Konus 20x60x80mm

that i use for Hi-power events and is quite a step up from the 100.00 spotting scopes sold by tasco, barska, ect....

I have been looking at the Zhumell 20x60x90mm, Konus 20x60x100 and the Celestron 20x60x100. All three are about the same price within 30 dollars. Zhumell and Konus have a ring that lets you rotate the scope for position adjustments where the celestron doesn't. I am looking to upgrade for my hi-power optics and use the konus 20x60x80mm for my range scope as it does very well much better than my 15 year old tasco 18x36x50mm thats unusable past 25 power. Any feedback will most appreciated thank you Bob

Zhumell spotting scopes are inexpensive and not very good. Just because they are big, it may not mean that they will serve you well.

What distance are you shooting at this time with your Konus scope? Are you looking to resovle bullet holes at 300 yds, 500 yds or bullet trace up to a 1000?

I have a 22-68x90mm zhumell spotting scope that I use for bird watching

it is fine for bird watching

optics are good

price is reasonable-399.99

on the down side-it is long 22 inches and heavy 4.25 lbs

the eyecup is made of rubber which is bent up or down for glasses or non -glass wearers(cheap)
should be a roll-up eyecup instead

my friend has a celestron spotting scope that cost  $200 more, but the optics are a little better than my Zhumell
