I know I have asked a ton of questions about this scope over the last year. But, I don't have the chance to look thru any scopes, so I probably have more questions to ask than most.
I am going to purchase a scope this year, probably spring or early summer. My intended uses are wildlife veiwing, spotting for target shooting,(most will be 200 yards or less) and I am very interested in digiscopeing. While I know that the Vortex Razor is extremely well thought of, 1600.00 is a lot of money for me to spend, especially when you consider that I have no experience with a spotting scope. The new Zen Ray and Theron spotters are getting good reveiws, but are unproven in my opinion. And Vortex is coming out with a Viper line of scopes soon. I own a Viper riflescope and it is a lot of bang for the buck. All this brings me back to the Celestron Regal 80. Good reveiws, fits my budget and accepts standard 1.25 eyepeices.
Can anyone make any argument against this scope? If I buy this scope and later decide that I want a better scope, could I resell it for a decent price? And I have read that ALL scopes vary from scope to scope. How can I, being a rookie, tell if I have a good one? I have nothing to compare it to.
Any and all advice will be appreciated!!!!!!
