Picked up a Vortex Skyline ED 80 SKS spotting scope on Ebay. How does it compare to the Viper and Razor HD? Do astro eyepieces fit on this?  It has not yet arrived in the mail...just checking your expert opinions. Steve

It takes it's own proprietary eyepieces. I think it's optical performance is pretty good, especially if you are getting a good price.

The Viper HDs I have seen were better when comparing solely based on memory. the ones I have seen showed very nice levels of contrast, I am confident the Razor HD is a better instrument, as it compares with the very best, optically.

Skyline is good. Does have its own eyepice. But the Viper HD is a step up. And the razor is noticeble better IMO.
