Best spotting scope style for the seated user?

I plan on purchasing a scope for my wife who uses a power chair.  I've looked at your video on straight vs angled, but I wonder if you have any knowledge of preferences of seated users?
Thank you for your time.

Dear Willard,
Thanks for your inquiry.

I think the choice of angled or straight would depend on where the tripod would be placed—next to, or possibly straddling her chair.

If the tripod can straddle her chair, a straight –bodied scope would be best, we think.  If the tripod is set up to the left of right of her chair, an angled scope would be easier to use, since the scope can rotate to either side. Most angled scopes have this capability.  If you’re not sure about a particular scope, we’ll be happy to check and confirm this for you.

All the best,

  1. Typically the tripod is set all the way up to the left from best suited from their reclining chair, a particular angled capacity is going to be simpler to usage, considering that capacity are able to move towards as well end.
