    I've dealt with this company for a long time. They buy closeouts, liquidations etc. and sell them at great prices. Their inventory changes constantly. It's a good dependable outfit.

    This scope doesn't have the angled eye piece but I bought one for bench rest and it works very well: <I>Celestron Spotting Scope</i>

    I second the Celestron Ultma 80. (20X60X80) That is what I use. Optics World has them for under $175. They are 98% as good as a $1000 spotting scope. I can see 6mm holes at 200-300 yards easily. Sinclair has a Bench stand for about $125. It's a clamp on style, very sturdy. Don't waste you money on a cheap little camera tripod stand, they wobble all over the place at high power.
