angled vs straight spotting scope

I am considering buying swarovski's 20x60 80. I could use advice on the diffences between a straight and angled scope. Is quaulity affected, how about ease in handling.
Also would really like general suggestions or opinions about this type of scope.
Thanks Boyd

Re: angled vs straight spotting scope

The angle of the eyepiece eases use in different shooting positions. The angled eyepiece works really well when shooting prone.

Personally, I use a straight eyepiece as I like to "look" in the direction of my spotting scope. I shoot from a bench, standing or seated. I use my spotting scope during hunting and prefer the seated/standing position whenever possible.

Both will work equally well. Just decide if you plan on shooting prone or not.
