Looking for a Spotting Scope

Postby Bonnie K. on Mon Mar 27, 2006 4:10 pm

I am looking for a small, inexpensive spotting scope with a tripod to be used at my home for watching boats going into and out of the harbor. The viewing range would probably have to be up to 4 or 5 miles, but I am not knowable on what kind of equipment would be needed to accomplish that application.
