I got a serious case of sticker shock when I was checking out spotting scope prices. What I'm looking for is something in the bottom end range- 200-250 dollars to use while I'm in the Alpine Country. I want one for a blackbear hunt this spring but I would primarily use it for wildlife veiwing while going on hikes untill I draw a goat permit. Being fog resistant and liteweight would be a plus. I would not be using the scope in the feild a lot (1-2 trip a year) and it will spend most of it's time set up in my living room. I live in the Southeast if this helps with suggestions at all. If it is impossible to get quality optics at this price tell me and include some of your favorites/prices/.
