need help

Postby brentb on Sat Jul 28, 2012 1:18 pm

I am currently doing research reading as many reviews as possible. I would like to find the best spotting scope available for around the $500 range. The scope will be primarily used for spotting deer and elk in hunting situations light gathering capability is very important. I have a small list of some I have in mind any feedback on these or others would be greatly appreciated. vortex viper, nikon prostaff, celestron regal, leupold golden ring, bushnell legend hd

Hi there hasn't been any feedback lately on these forums so I thought I'd might help you out.
I have a celestron regal f-100ed and am really happy with it, I haven't used any of the other brands you had in mined. A lot of people might call me crazy but I had a kowa TSN-884 which according to a lot of websites is the "best" sporting scope and I returned it and later got the celestron 100 regal. Maby it's just my eyes but the price wasn't worth the difference. I was really impressed with the celestron.
The celestron regal 100 is over your 500 area but on other websites it cost less, B&H has the 80mm regal At $525 a lot less than here ... _80mm.html

I hope that helps
