Need more info on your application. Target shooting, hunting, backpacking, digiscoping? Preferred viewing position: prone, sitting, standing? Specific needs for this scope?

Bruce, I'm gonna pick your brain too... I too need a new spotting scope for primarily bench rest 100-200 yard work with a sprinkling of game spotting. I need something that won't break my bank but is still durable (because I'm a clutz about dropping stuff). I already have a tripod. and I'd like a zoom scope.

My 30 year old Bushy has about had it......

Re: spotting scopes

depending on how good your eyes are you will notice a difference in even the high end stuff as far as clarity is concerned. I went with zeiss when the had the field days but it ends up being almost a toss up as far as glass is concerned. It is more about what focus you like and ergonomics but the best and brightest I tested last year when on my search was the kowa prominar 82 I think scope man that thing was bright but for slightly cheaper I got the zeiss which was a close second.

Sidecar and Patrick, two more questions for both of you.
1. Any vision issues other than near or far sightedness? Especially astigmatism, ocular disease, etc.
2. How important is low light viewing?
