    Celestron Spotter

    I was looking back at some spotter posts and found something about these spotters, I think it came from BB. So I have been looking at them and they sound really good and kinda in my price range. The regal M2 65Ed is about 480.00, but I haven't seen a straight one only angled anyone know anything about these, and are they worth it?

    Which vortex spotter would be a good bet and quality for around that price? I'm sure it's been said, but I'm kinda forgetful!

    I bought a pair of big binoculars and was not impressed.
    Find something else.
    My old Bushnell spotting scope had better glass.
    Go for the Vortex glass. My wife just bought a pair of the Diamondback binos to leave in the 4runner and they are really nice. I compared them to my older Cabelas Eurovison that were $600 bucks and they were every bit as good. It was after sunset and the was pretty dark and the light gathering was great.

    Thanks! I think I'm going to go with vortex. Just getting as many opinions as possible. Has anyone had any experience with the dimondback spotter? I'm thinking about that one.
