Spotting scope options for packing
« on: January 04, 2013, 11:35:30 AM »
Hello

What is available for good (or great) lightweight spotters. Are there any new options?

I have been looking at a zeiss diatyl (but hate to support a product endorsed by DB's) and the Nikon ED 50

not as worried about price as size and weight. Old guys like me can't pack the Hubble Space telescope around any longer...

Check out Kowa. You need to look through my 774. If i was to do it over I,d probably get the 664 but good glass decent price. www.peleewings.ca

What are you looking for out of a scope lurch?
