After reading on-line reviews from hunting and sporting magazines, I decided to give the 20-60 x 60 a try. My order included nylon carrying case, table top tri-pod and a phone attachment for taking pictures with a smart phone. The tripod is nothing special, but it is good enough for light duty use. The scope itself appears to be well made and the lens caps fit snugly. The optics are clear and resolution is crisp. For backyard birding or wildlife viewing withing 10-100 yards this is more than enough scope for basic needs. I am certain it will be very useful on the rifle range as well, when I get a chance to use it there. I mounted the scope on a larger camera tripod I had and it works very well. For less than $100 I doubt you can find a much better package. The attachment for an iPhone mounts easily but it is a little finicky to align the camera lens with the scope. With a little patience and practice it does mount easily. The pictures come out crisp as long, obviously, as you have the scope in focus. If you're in the market for an economical but serviceable scope this is a good option.
