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

That is pretty lightweight and compact. Curious how it compares to other scopes.
In the beginning God created the heavens and the earth. Genesis 1:1

"And can the liberties of a nation be thought secure when we have removed their only firm basis, a conviction in the minds of the people that these liberties are the gift of God?" Thomas Jefferson - Notes on the State of Virginia

Re: Light weight spotting scope?

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).
