It's a lot more secure than a digiscope apparatus, and may just be one of those incremental advantages to a straight scope over an angled one.

Very personal, but I like it with my ED60 and ED82 Fieldscopes.

Sincerest thanks, Robert. In my case, the window-mounting and digiscoping advantages of straight scopes donīt apply, īcos I donīt digiscope and never bird from a car. But I can appreciate how your advice is spot on for those who do. Iīve always found angled scopes a real pain in the ..... from a hide, though.
