Regal 100 F-ED Spotting Scope
- Product Review (submitted on April 28, 2012):
The Regal 100 F-ED is quite good. It shines for terrestial viewing. The weak points are the lack of parfocality when zooming and the poor focuser stability. It is an excellent set of optimized optics. For astronomical viewing, a Telrad or other reflex finder is mounted on a thin steel plate parallel to the spotting scope. For best results you need an ultrastable tripod.
You will come to regard this twitchy little scope as your best buddy when viewing animals and landscapes and planets. If you want better performance then pay
$4000.00 for Zeiss optics. For the price here, it is a steal.
