Used to own a Luxon 20-45 x 60 scope. They are sold for about $100 in the Netherlands. What can you expect for such a price?

It must be made somewhere in China. And it's clear that it is made as cheap as possible. But i loved mine. Strong and not a toy. Expect a "dark" and yellow image and blur at higher magnification. (> 35x). But it's useable and perfect in price/performance.

Regards, Martijn
