Re: Spotting scope - angled or straight?

years back many pa long range hunters used very large ww2 military binnoculars.
most popular were the 10x80 german flak glasses and the 20x120 battleship
glasses which are mostly jap. all the 10x80s are angled and some of the 20x120s are also. ive owned and used both types both being angled for a few years.
when your looking uphill angles are nicer. looking down or straight across the valley i prefer straight thru glasses. if you have any interest in using your scope for a twin application by all means buy the straight scope as angles
dont work for that purpose.

    I like angled because of the versatility. seems like its handier in a higher range of positions and angles
