Comments about pricing:

I needed a spotting scope for making my time at the rifle range more than just about slinging lead but I did not want to use up a ton of money. At my local sporting goods/outdoor store, the Simmons Blazer 20 60×60 was the best obvious agreement in price, magnification power and objective lens size. It was a bonus that it came with a tripod.

First, the included tripod is junk. It is too cheap and lacks the stability to make me comfy with the scope over it. I am constantly worried that it is going to wobble over and cause the scope to break. It only took using it two or three times before I spent another $25 on a table top tripod from Slik.

Second, though the objective lens is a 60mm glass, it does not let in as much light as you could expect. My 10×42 rifle scope is far lighter.

Aside from this, considering the money spent the scope does exactly what I need it to do. I am NOW able to easily see .223 sized holes in the target paper at 100 yards and can make out .308 & .30 06 sized holes in the target paper at 200 yards. It saves a great deal of time being able to review my shots from the firing line instead of having to walk down to the targets to review each string of fire.

How is MSRP of 13-2050-PARENT's trending this year (2015) in its category

Should you buy it:

I replaced a weaker Bushnell scope I’d had since I am shooting at much farther ranges now. I have been happy with the Simmons rifle scopes I own & have had occasion to require buyer service which was remaining. Simmons may not be considered as hi caliber an optic as many brands or models costing ten times as much, but for the shooter or hunter who hits the range some times a month or hunts some times a year, they are a great value that you will not be scared to take into the field. I have been happy with all Simmons merchandise I have come in contact with.

This scope has been shipped quickly & came in a hard case, with a soft case for field carry in hunting applications. The front lens cap has a compass fitted (a useful feature if you take it hunting). The image is crisp, bright & clear out to the 300 yards I have used it at so far. I am going to attempt to get out to a 1000 yard rage, but not possible now. The tripod will include a fast removable head which really makes set up & take down a breeze. I do not believe you will find a better scope inside this price vary from any vendor & recommend it greatly to anybody on the fence about making a buy.

If you are thinking about buying 8x25, you should probably read this first to save some money

Is it worth the cost:

I bought a Barska Benchmark 25 125×88 from Overstock. It was cheaply made and got so blurry, that the .22 bullet hole at 165 yds wasn’t visable. So I returned it thinking maybe many defect. When the substitute arrived, same thing. So it went back and I got refunded the $113. No charges for the returns. Thank you.
This Simmions is a much better scope,you can tell just by picking it up. From one end to the other. Much better tripod that changes, someting the Barska did not. With a nice bag and hard case. And it was cheeper than the “Blurry Barska Benchmark” (say that three times fast..LOL.) The .22 hole is visable at 165 yds.
Buy the Simmions instead of the Barska.

Yours truley;
The 165yd plunker.

Binoculars can be generally used without eyeglasses by myopic (near-sighted) or hyperopic (far-sighted) users simply by adjusting the focus a little further. Binoculars have a focusing arrangement which changes the distance between ocular and objective lenses. An optical telescope gathers and focuses light mainly from the visible part of the electromagnetic spectrum (although some work in the infrared and ultraviolet). These are considered to be compromise designs, suited for convenience, but not well suited for work that falls outside their designed range. And, it means that the image can be quickly found which is important when looking at birds or game animals that move rapidly, or by a seaman on the deck of a pitching boat or ship. Today, the pure science of optics is called optical science or optical physics to distinguish it from applied optical sciences, which are referred to as optical engineering. Binoculars with short eye relief can also be hard to use in instances where it is difficult to hold them steady. Binoculars, field glasses or binocular telescopes are a pair of identical or mirror-symmetrical telescopes mounted side-by-side and aligned to point accurately in the same direction, allowing the viewer to use both eyes (binocular vision) when viewing distant objects. Normally there are two different arrangements used to provide focus, “independent focus” and “central focusing” Independent focus is an arrangement where the two telescopes are focused independently by adjusting each eyepiece. A true zoom lens, also called a parfocal lens, is one that maintains focus when its focal length changes. Exit pupil Binoculars concentrate the light gathered by the objective into a beam, the exit pupil, whose diameter is the objective diameter divided by the magnifying power. Central focusing is an arrangement which involves rotation of a central focusing wheel to adjust both tubes together. There are “focus-free” or “fixed-focus” binoculars that have no focusing mechanism other than the eyepiece adjustments that are meant to be set for the user’s eyes and left fixed. Eye relief Eye relief is the distance from the rear eyepiece lens to the exit pupil or eye point. Prominent subfields of optical engineering include illumination engineering, photonics, and optoelectronics with practical applications like lens design, fabrication and testing of optical components, and image processing.
