I have a quick question. My brother are heading out west for our first time this fall. We are in the process of purchasing a spotting scope. I have been doing a lot of research and testing out spotting scopes from the cheapest to the most expensive. We want to get a spotting with a good quality glass that will last us. The trick is that we are both in college so we are on sort of a budget and the vortex viper hd 15-45 ×65 angled scopes from reading about them seem to be high quality for a more reasonable price. I have been trying to find a place to test one out but no one in the state of iowa seems to carry any vortex viper spotting scopes. I would like to know if this spotting scope would be a good choice for us to buy, or what insight you guys have on them?
