I am looking for opinions on some long range spotting scopes. I have a 85 mm zeiss spotter and am looking for a smaller unit that is packable size. I dont want to pay for a zeiss again, but want a comparable glass. I am looking at the kowa, minox and meopta. All would be in the ed or flourite coated glass. I dont have any distributers close by to look myself so if you have used one of these let me know what you think. No I do not want a burris, nikon, weaver or wind river. I have looked at all of these in the 4 - 5 hundred dollar range and think they are all junk. I will use this spotter on deer and elk. It will be packed in all day. I want a excellent view at animals at 1000 plus yards. I will get a 15x45 or 20x60 eyepiece. Thanks in advance for your input.
