OK, same deal as with the binos. Aussie dollar is strong enough to force my hand into buying some top shelf investment optics. 

So, for $3000 US, what 80mm+ spotter with 20-60x would you recommend? To be used primarily for hunting, but also landscape observation, star gazing, and digiscoping with cameras. 

Am thinking KOWA TSN883 with 20-60x.

Recommendations?

If I had $3000 to drop on a spotter, I'd have to look at a Zeiss.

Absolutely!  The 883/884 are arguably the finest spotters on the planet at the moment.

The new Leica with the new Aspherical eyepiece is fantastic and is in that price range.
