Thinking of buying a spotting scope, need advice

Dear Eagle Optics,
I've been birding with a good binocular for a few years. Recently I had a chance to look through some spotting scopes, and I was hooked.  I'd like to buy a scope, but I know nothing about them.  Are they easy to use and maintain?  Shoud I get an angled or straight-bodied scope?

Thanks for any assistance you might offer.

Dear Anne,
Thanks for your inquiry. Many of us yearn for the up-close looks that a spotting scope can give.  It can bring an entirely new dimension to your birding experience!

Spotting scopes are relatively simple instruments.  They are durable and easy to maintain.  Check out this article to help you to better understand spotting scopes.  Also, below is a helpful video that will help you see the advantages of both the angled and straight-bodied scopes.

Choosing a spotting scope for your individual taste and budget can be daunting, with so many choices on the market.  This guide is a good resource.

As always, we welcome your call if you'd like to chat more.

Best regards, Eagle Optics
