While binoculars aren't going to have the magnification range that a spotting scope will, they'll be more forgiving on eye fatigue. If you need to see every detail possible though, a spotting scope is for you. Whichever way you go, be sure to include a tripod, and if necessary, a binocular tripod adapter.
Angled scopes have the advantage of using a lower tripod height for better stability as well as, in my opinion, being a much better setup for digiscoping. If you are planning on glassing for long periods of time the angled scope is also a more comfortable option.
This is a very good spotting scope for the money. It is basic and well finished and the mount is unusually good for this price range. Greatly outperforms a Celestron C65 that it replaced. Optics have decent clarity and light transmission, though resolution deteriorates as you approach the maximum magnification of 60x.
A spotting scope is a small telescope that has been modified for use by day. ... Spotting scopes are used anytime you need more magnification than a binocular provides. Spotting scopes are widely used for birding, surveillance, hunting, and viewing landscape, wildlife, ships and other distant objects.
Know how much you're willing to spend as spotting scopes range from $350 to $6000 without a tripod. There is a noticeable quality difference every time you step up a level. For example a $1000 scope will offer a significantly clearer, sharper image than a $300 scope.
A spotting scope is always represented by two sets of numbers. For example 20-60×80. The first set of numbers refers to its magnification (or zoom). For example 20-60x means 20x to 60x variable zoom. The second number refers to the diameter of its objective lens.
Spotting scopes offer unmatched versatility and durability for primarily terrestrial viewing (think birding) and some astronomical viewing. Telescopes give you a superior view of the heavens, but are less portable, less durable, and slightly more difficult to use than a spotting scope.
In general, the least magnification that gives you a clear target image is the best magnification. I use 4x rifle scopes for most big-game hunting and think it adequate to 300 yards. A 6x works fine for me at 400. Of course, you'll want more magnification for small animals like prairie dogs.
For most birding situations, an eyepiece of between 20X and 30X will be most effective. Heat shimmer and vibrations frequently obscure the view at higher magnifications. Zoom eyepieces are often the best for birding. Some popular zooms are 20-40X, 20-60X, or 25- 50X.
Advantages of Monoculars Since they are practically only “half” a regular pair of binoculars, but providing the same magnification levels as regular binoculars, monoculars cost less. A drawback of monoculars is the lack of relaxed vision, which can lead to rapid eye fatigue.
The M19 binocular which is a 7x50 and M49 spotting scope. The binoculars have an interpupillary scale on the side that you use to adjust to fit your eyes (two pupils/two eyes - adjust it until you have one clear picture when you look through them).
