Leica spotting scope (straight or angled?)

I just picked up a leica spotter from ebay. Thought I was bidding on a straight through body but it showed up on my door w/ an angled body. As this is my first spotter, what advantage does the angle/ strraight have over the other style? I'll use it for usuall stuff. Looking at game, spotting bullet holes in targets, voyeurism and such. Any thoughts would be appreciated

Re: Leica spotting scope (straight or angled?)

Advantage is easy to use when shooting prone, you are sort of looking down into it.
Disadvantage is not as quick to aim on an object, takes practice. Most hunters prefer straight type but no reason not to use angled also for hunting, just practice with it.
Should be a great spotting scope, good luck with it.
