If you find yourself aching to buy a spotting scope that costs less than $100…. don’t.
As a matter of fact, I can save you fifty bucks right here, on the spot: send me a money order for fifty dollars and keep the remaining money to yourself.
Translation: I have not yet seen a sub-$100 spotting scope that was good for anything other than inducing headaches. If I run into one, I’ll let you know.
