I have finally convinced the wife that I need to get a spotting scope for myself. My price range is a max of $400.00-$500.00. The spotting scope will have to be a multipurpose scope, that I can use to spot out of my truck as well as hiking the hills. What are some of the good spotting scopes in this price range that I should be looking for? I realize that this is not alot of money to spend on a spotting scope, but at this time this is what my budget will allow. Also should I be looking for one with an angled or straight eye piece? The power range I have in mind is 20 x 60 x 80 or 15 x 45 x 60 or 20 x 60 x 60. I know that alot of you guys have owned many different brands. What are some of your likes and dislikes in some of the scopes that you have. Any advise would be great, and thanks for the help.
