I voted angled cause I have a Bushnell angled and I have never used anything else

Re: Spotting scope - angled or straight?

I would love to run two equal scopes one angled and one straight side by side for a whole week of hunting. That would be my true measure. It would be cool if someone had the resources to do it and do a write up on it. I would if someone would provide the glass.

Angled is the most versatile. I have both and you can line up behind an angled scope the same as a straight scope. Cant line up naturally to the side with a straight scope.

Re: Spotting scope - angled or straight?

My Kowa has the strait eyepiece, but almost all the others I had before were angled. I just reached a point in life that I had trouble getting a good focus out of the angled ones. I think it's due to wearing bifocals. But it just could be me. The first Kowa I used was a 77mm angled one, and it worked better than the other angled ones I'd used, but still found myself moving my head around trying to get a sharp picture. Then I tried a few with strait eyepieces and never had a problem. I also liked using the strait one better from a prone shooting position.

Re: Spotting scope - angled or straight?

Just sold my Swaro Angled ATS 80 HD and purchased a Nightforce TS-82 HD straight.

First impressions are I will be trading for another angled unit again. I have only used it from the truck window so far, but that is where I do a good portion of my spotting and straight is a pain compared to the angled from a window mount.

I think if some of the straight voters would try an angled the poll would be much different.
