I know there are lot of threads about spotting scopes, but I am not seeing much except people with more money than me saying "buy a Swarovski"
Well, I am not going to be buying one, so I need a little advice from those who might be down in my range
I was set on going with the Vortex Diamondback, angles 20-60x80, which is near the top of my range at $500
I looked around and saw a lot of good reviews for a Celestron model called the Ultima 80, but the low price has me worried they are reviewing a low-end model and basically saying, "Yeah, it's crappy,m but for crappy, it's the best"
Any idea if this is a great buy or just awful compared to something like the Vortex? I am not opposed to spending 200 on a scope of it is pretty close to a 500! LOL
Also, while I would like to stay around the 500 mark or less, if you know of something significantly better for maybe 700, I'd look at it. Really not gonna go over 700 no matter what.
Oh, and I mainly want it for sheep hunting.
