This small scope is a good buy. I have a larger Bushnell Legend Ultra HD 20-60 x 80 scope and when I compare it with this scope I do notice that things look a little better on the Bushnell, but this scope by no means is a slouch. I once noticed some fairly severe chromatic aberration while watching some Mourning Doves at a sizable distance (cranked the zoom up) in a tree at dusk with the sky in the background, but that was a rare case, most of the time any chromatic aberration is only present as a yellow color on the very edge of the image or faintly sometimes outside the center (these observations though are reduced or are gone when you observe things closer or in better lighting or another situation, that is, not at dusk with a sky in the background, I watched some sparrows at a somewhat close distance and the image is superb). This scope is better than my Bushnell Legend Ultra HD 10 x 42mm Binoculars (which are rated high by others for quality) while being the same weight and more zoom. This is like a hybrid between a scope and a binocular, the portability of a binocular with the zoom of a scope (albeit not to 60 x zoom). I use this scope with an Amazon Basics 50 Inch Tripod, the weight is soo light it's amazing. The weight of my previous scope setup was definitely an annoyance, this scope is very light. All-in-all a very small scope that packs a punch, quality is good and is perfect for light and easy birding.
