Henry,

Can you say if the 60mm Monarch scope also has an oversized prism or is that confined to the 82ED scope?

Thanks and best,

Thank you for the report! You definitely answered some questions for me. Very glad your scope and tripod only met thoughtful and honest people during its time alone.

Or, you could just attach this 200PL compatible plate to the Celestron scope (plenty of room for two screws) and be done with it for $25.

Cheaper is almost always better! However, I seemed to recall that the Celestron foot holes donít align with Manfrotto plate holes - but it was long ago.

Exactly. I’d hate to scan for whales at 30x, much less 100x. Once the beast is located then, by all means, bring out the scopes.

Not sure where budget starts. If you watch closely it’s possible to get a Pentax 65mm for $400 and 80mm for $650. That’s amazing quality for the money.
