Learning the basics of spotting scopes can be daunting, but it will help you find the scope best suited to your needs. Be sure to look at the aperture, optical design (refractor or reflector), body style (straight or angled), and exit pupil. Eye relief is also important because it measures the distance of the rear eyepiece lens from your eye when looking into the spotting scope. A spotting scope’s angular and linear field of view determines the size of the area you will be able to see out of the spotting scope. Those are basics. You may see other characteristics associated with your spotting scope, such as prism type, fog or waterproofing, lens coatings, zoom capabilities, and more.
Be sure to outfit your spotting scope with the right accessories! Viewing over a long period of time can be strenuous. That is why we carry a vast assortment of mounts, tripods and spotting scopes for sale so you can enjoy easy sights wherever you go. It is also crucial to keep your spotting scope clean to avoid internal fungus build up. Take a look at our website to find many great cleaning kits.
