Hi

For a hunting spotting scope, you should consider a spotting scope that is compact, waterproof and that has good optics. To use it for photography, you will, of course, need a model that is camera adaptable.

Assuming your Canon is a film SLR, here are some good choices.

* Nikon Fieldscope III Spotting Scope Outfit - 6949, http://opticsplanet.com/nikon-spottings ... utfit.html

* Kowa 66mm High Performace Spotting Scopes TSN-660 Series, http://opticsplanet.com/kowa-66-high-pe ... copes.html

* Swarovski STS 65 HD High Definition 65mm Spotting Scope Body, http://www.opticsplanet.com/swarovski-sts65-hd.html

* Leica Televid 62 Spotting Scope, http://opticsplanet.com/leica-televid-6 ... scope.html

All of these spotting scopes offer superb optics and camera adapters for your Canon. Any of them by themselves are great choices for a hunting spotting scope.
