Need some help for my friend. What is the best spotter set-up (scope, straight or angled, tripod, extra eye pieces, etc) ....say ...around $2,000.00 or less for a beach house? It would tripod mounted and used to look at stars, boats & maybe a little people watching. Thank you for your time.

Not the most practical thing I've ever seen by any stretch.

For under your budget you could get into the Vortex 85 mm scope w/20-60 eyepiece and have a some coin left for a tripod.  If only one person is going to be using it, I'd say let them decide what they want in the straight or angled dept..  If many people of different heights will be using it, I'd say go angled - at least that is the impression I've learned around here.  Sorry I'm not much help.  I joined seeking knowledge too.
 
In the questioin I posted, the only reason some said not to go with the big Vortex was if weight and size was going to be a problem, if I was going to pack it along while out hunting.
