Comments about Swarovski Optik Swarovski Optik HD-ATS 65 Spotting Scope with 45 degree angle Viewing (does not include eyepiece).:
I have used this scope for several years, and have yet to come across anyone on the same trip who has had a better view, with any size scope. By rotating the scope, I can easily provide views to those shorter than myself. I have been using the 30X wide angle ocular, rather than the 20-60X zoom that most people buy, but soon to be available will be an improved zoom, 25-50xsW, with a wider angle view at either the short, or the long positions, the the original zoom. For most people that will be the choice. The scope is lightweight, and packs easily for travel, including by plane, as a carry-on. The only weak spot of this scope is the plastic tripod foot. While it mounts directly into a Bogen head, for the cost of the scope, the foot really should be metal. Of course, if you buy one of these, don't forget to also treat your spouse to one of the wonderful Swarovski crystal figurines!
