    Spotting scope. What have you got?

    Hi

    I am after a spotting scope.

    Open to suggestions on manufacturer, model, straight, angled or even draw scope.

    What may any of you have?

    Reply by PM if you can.

    Cheers

    Unless you are using a scope stand on a bench those with angled eyepieces are a pain in the bottom! Majorly so! I use one of the Russian "TURIST" that get sold on eBay for around 20-35.

    It won't be exactly win prizes for its plastic carrying tube (if it comes with one) for bespoke good taste if on the hill but for checking group size and zeroing on a 100 yard range it does the job well enough.

    I use a Kowa TSN2 with a 20-40 zoom eyepiece for range work. I also have a Schmidt and Bender 15-60 3 draw telescope for the hill.
