They do have their place. You need a tripod or a window mount, but glassing long distances (as in miles) they are pretty nice. Keeping one eye closed for hours (or days) on end looking through a spotting scope gets old. Fast. And as 30-06 said they have an 80mm objective end so field of view is the same as a pair of 10x40's. I used a pair a friend of mine has and was pretty impressed.
30-06 this wouldn't be a cheap route, but you can also get a bracket to attach two spotting scopes together if you need even more magnification or clarity.
And Dick, how are you always everywhere all at once?
