I need to upgrade from my Bushnell Elite spotting scope. I can only afford to buy one scope. My binos are Minox 10x42. I mainly hunt mulies, sometimes antelope.

I am looking at a Razor HD 20-60x85 spotter, which gets great reviews. But, I am hesitant to add all that weight (+ the tripod) while I hunt.

I am also considering the Nikon ED50 which is obviously much easier to carry, but it tops out at 30x and optics are not as good.

What spotter would you recommend? I usually buy used or demos and I need to keep it under $1,250.
