Hello, I am wanting to upgrade my spotting scope. I currently have a Alpen 15-45x60. It is my first spotting scope and for the money it is fine.  Since owning one I have come to realise the value of using one for Deer hunting here in NZ. I can not afford a Swarovski  etc but would like to get as close as I can for less money. Magnification topping out at 30x  would be all I need. I usually spot from a road so portability is not a big issue.

Any help would be appreciated. Thanks

Lazercft -


What is your budget?  If portability is not a big issue, I would look at Pentax.  They make some decent spotters but they are generally heavy.  I would also check out Nikon.  Customer service is terrible but the optics are generally pretty good for the money.
