VortexScopegiftguide

This is a great new edition to the Vortex line. It’s a perfect “compromise” scope for when you don’t want the extra weight and hassle of packing along a big spotting scope, but then you can’t stand the thought of not being able to conduct a detailed examination of distant critters. Easily the clearest and most user-friendly ultra-compact spotting scope out there. Available with angled and straight eye pieces. (I prefer angled because it makes it much easier to look uphill; it’s also much easier to use without a tripod, as you can prop it on a backpack.)
