Anyone have a recommendation for a good, moderately priced spotting scope? My Nikon Fieldscope that I bought in Hong Kong in 1982 is optically excellent and still in good condition, but it has only fixed-power eyepieces and I'd much rather have an angled eyepiece rather than straight. I'd prefer not to drop a grand on a Kowa unless there's no reasonable alternative. The Leupold SX-2 Alpine is attractively priced at $400, but it's gotten very mixed reviews and I think it's made in China. There's also a more upscale Leupold at around $7-800, but I don't know much about that one. Anybody have personal experience with either of those? My parameters are: Zoom eyepiece, preferably 20-60x but would consider 15-45x. Angled eyepiece. 60mm objective. 80 is too big, heavy, and expensive. Strongly prefer NOT made in China. Price: Preferably under $500; would go somewhat higher if necessary. No cheap junk. Recommendations are welcome, especially if you have personal experience with the specific model.
