Re: Light weight spotting scope?

Nikon | Fieldscope ED50 2.0"/50mm Spotting Scope | 8320

That is pretty lightweight and compact. Curious how it compares to other scopes.

    I used to pack a leica 62mm spotter, but I was looking for something smaller and lighter so I found an older leupold gold ring 25x50 fixed and thus far have been happy with it. I also carry binos....either swaro 10x42 slcs or 8x42 leica ultravids.

    Re: Light weight spotting scope?

    Old thread, but here's what i'm using these days for the least weight possible--





    It's the Bushnell 2.5x booster

    Works great with my Leupy 10-20, and OK with the Leicas (little fuzzy on the edges).
