spotting scope for birding

Postby psl on Sat Mar 25, 2006 10:10 am

I'm looking for a not hugely expensive spotting scope for birding. My husband typically birdwatches at parks, and the binoculars aren't cutting it. I would like waterproof and ability to attach a camera if possible. Thank you very much!!

Here are a couple of scopes that are quite useable as birding scopes.

Bushnell 20-60x65 Trophy Spotting Scope 78-2065, ... rophy.html

Celestron Ultima 65 Spotting Scope 52248, ... scope.html

Celestron Ultima 80 Spotting Scope 52250, ... scope.html

As to the camera, you will need to specifiy the type of camera, though you can use a universal adapter such as the Barska, ... aptor.html to attach any digital point and shoot to almost any spotting scope.
