Which spotting scope to buy?
I wear eyeglasses and therefore will need a scope with the capability for long eye relief.
Price range to be less than $1000.
Also, do you recommend the straight eyepiece or the 45 degree eyepiece?
I would suggest a scope up to 60x magnification. Some of our more popular models include:

http://www.opticsplanet.com/blelspotscop.html, Bausch & Lomb Elite 70mm, and
http://www.opticsplanet.com/620080.html, Bausch & Lomb Elite 80mm.
The difference between the 60, 70, and 80mm scope is that the larger that objective lens, the brighter the image. This is especially important if you plan on viewing a lot in dusk and dawn hours when it is not as bright out.
All of these scopes have decent eye relief for eyeglasses. Please let us know if there is anything else we can do for you.
