Ok, I got a question that should be simple simon for a bunch of you guys………. How powerful of a spotting scope do I need to be able to accurately make out brow tines on a bull moose at 1000 yards? Is this even possible? Am I way, way over estimating the power of modern glass or what? Would the scope be almost the size of my truck? I hate to sound like the uneducated pin head that I am, but the truth is, that I have NEVER looked thru a spotting scope so if you tell me you can see Neil Armstrong’s footie prints on the moon with your super duper magnum spotting scope I would probably fall for it…….
Perhaps one of you guys can show a little mercy and give a basic primer on what can realistically be expected performance wise from stuff in my price range ($400 to $800)
Thanks in advance for you kind consideration, and if you feel the need to insult or ridicule me for being an idiot, that is A-ok……. I got lotts of turtle wax laying around……. You know, to “toughen up my little shell”
