As far as I know, this is the only spotter I can find with 30mm of relief, throughout the entire range of zoom:

 

Leupold 12-40x60mm Golden Ring Spotting Scope 61050

 

I borrowed an older Burris that I could see through, but I don't think it's made anymore. The only marking was: Burris Extended Relief

 

The main use will be at 50 yards, to sight 22lr shots.

 

I know the Leupold will work for that and out to 300 yards when I'm shooting centerfire benchrest. The cost is a problem, unless I can find a used one.

 

Are there any more Spotters around with at least 30mm of relief?

 

Any info would be greatly appreciated.

 

Thanks

 

Gene

why do you need so much eye relief? I ware glasses and as long as I flip the rubber eye cap inside out, My cheap Bushnell sentry works great. 

Fancy Binos and scopes have adjustable eye pieces so I can get my glasses closer to the lens. but the cheap old rubber ones can just be flipped out.

The US Optics spotting scope has  the longest eye relief of any spotting scope made that I know of.
It is a FFP variable spotting scope that can be had with several reticle options.
It has great eye relief but what you get in eye relief you lose in FOV.
