Hello everyone, I'm new here. I love hunting, bird watching and observing natural objects during my leisure. The question is, what kind of spotting scope would be suitable for me? Thanks in advance for the help. :)

Hi John,
Welcome.

Spoting scopes vary vastly in price from £100 to £2,500 for top makes.

If you are in the U.K. look at OVL website you will find serviceable scopes such as Acuter, with or without ED glass.

20x to 60 x 80 or 16x to 48x 65 might be suitable.

The main thing is to have a sturdy tripod, weighing say 2.5kg or 2kg for carbon fibre. Or heavier. There are good compact tripods for use whilst sitting.

It depends how you travel, how strong you are or fit you are, Do you also carry cameras etc.

The birdwatchers in the U.K. are not keen on hunting, so you may have to take care with those type of questions.

Regards,
David
