What Spotting Scope Do You Use?

I'm interested in which spotting scope you all use, and what do you all think of all the different spotting scopes available. Who do you think makes the very best one for long range hunting, and why?

Sorry, I'm new to this board. I, too, am looking to upgrade my spotting scope. What exactly are "Big Eyes"? Thanks!

EX

Bigeyes come in a wide variation.
They can be two Bushnell Spacemaster spotting scopes put in a bracket or two Kowa spotters in a bracket or ex Military large ship or artillery binoculars.

The reason we use them is because of the ease of use and much less eye strain after hours af scanning the far mountains for game.

Once a person usues the bigeye setup, they will never go back to plain binoculars or single spotters for extended viewing.

Brackets are not usually sold by themselves unless you know someone who makes them.

I have put about 40 or more Bigeyes sets together over the years.

I have one bracket extra that will fit the Spacemasters at this time.

If interested, $200.00 sent to you.
