Can you tell me the main reason cheap spotting scopes will not be rated as a good choice for digiscoping?

Couple of reasons. First, overall optical quality is marginal on a cheap spotting scope and if you want a good pic, it starts with a good image. Second, the best eyepieces for digiscoping have a large lens diameter and lots of eye relief - features you typically don't get on a cheap spotting scope.
