    Scope Comparison help needed

    So I’m about to upgrade from my bins to a first scope. I can only really afford mid range, especially as I want to get a decent tripod and iPhone digiscoping adapter. The three I’m looking at in order of preference are 1. Celestron Regal M2 80 2. Hawke Endurance ED20 85 3. Vanguard Endeavour...
