For a trip to Glacier and Yellowstone that my wife and I were taking, I bought this item and the Rootless 13x50 monocular. Thought this would be good as a second unit because it has a bit more power, and I wanted each of us to have something to watch wildlife with. This one worked okay. The power is actually great, but it isn't as bright as the Rootless, and when nearing full zoom, it becomes very touchy to get good focus and sometime difficult to see the subject due to lack of brightness. But again, it worked okay. I would have preferred two of the Rootless units, or I would have spent more on a better high power scope to replace this one.
