Not sure if this is best forum for this.
I am also looking for a budget spotting scope, it will be for use on a range for sighting in.
There are a number of svbony scopes in 20 to 60.... 60mm, 70 and 80......will prob never be used at 1000 yards, most use will be 25, 50, 100 and 200...
I have hadbone before, it would not be much good at 60, but short if that, all good, its bigger prob was a loose mounting point....so....wobble wobble wobble...lol....anyway not sure where it went.
In au dollars, svbony can be had for approx 80 to 150 for the 80mm one, that is like 50 to less than 100 US.
Any suggestions ? Anyone used these ?
I guess my main concern is decent mount point, useable at say 40x...and not needing my eyeball touching the thing to see what is going on.
As a side thought, would a phone camera adapter be worthwhile so you can see at a glance where things are landing ?
