Hello,
 
I'm in the market to buy a budget-priced scope.  Approx. $175-250 for birding and nature viewing.  I know that the optics won't be the greatest for this price point but it will serve my purpose just fine.  I'm thinking about the Theron Saker 60 mm.  This is new. I am also looking at a used Brunton Eterna 62mm.  For the money, which of these would be better for my needs and price point? 
 
Any suggestions on some other ones would be helpful.   Thanks.  Rick

I cannot speak for the Brunton as I have never tried it. I have tried the Saker and can honestly say that it certainly delivers for its price. It would definitely be my choice in this price range. Relatively lightweight, excellent optics and killer price.
