    General spotting scope questions

    I have and use a Monarch 82ED-A with the 20 to 60 eyepiece but much prefer the new to me this spring Athlon Ares UHD 15-45 x 65. Have a look at them. Very lightweight and quick on focus.

    Tripod Suggestions

    Thank for your response, that Sirui was on the top of my list and I just received it today. I am very impressed so far just unboxing it and mounting my scope to it. I expect it will meet my needs. Took my existing scope and tripod from 11 pounds to 6 pounds with new scope and tripod. Also...
