Do you mean one of these?

The big guns in rifle silhouette used to (maybe still do) put two of these together like a pair of binoculars, mounted on a tripod to spot. Amazing at what you can see.

The guys at Dam Neck used to do the same thing, on a special mount. That was back in the late 80s-early 90s. Kowa then started making an actual set called the Highlander with 82mm Prominar coated Fluorite crystal objectives.

I have both the TSN1 & the Celestron 80mm Regal M2 LER. The Celestron is brighter and clearer but not by much. The Kowa is still a very good scope but it's not waterproof and the lenses don't have an ED element and the coatings on those lenses are older.

I recommend the Celestron as the best bang for the buck in spotting scopes.

Default Recommendations for Spotting Scope

Hello,

I'm looking for recommendations on spotting scopes that will mount and fit inside my Strong SRC-1608 three gun case. Thanks in advance.

There is a Celestron 10-30 x 50 on Amazon that I believe is similar to the cc2060 on Champions Choice' website if not the same scope for about $53. I bought this scope last year and it has been well worth the money. In the right light I can easily see 224 holes on SR-1 targets at 100 yards and it has sufficient clarity for 25-50 yard pistol.

For Bullseye I use this which works fine out to 50 yards and fits in the box:

The Celestron 10-30x50 fit nicely in the SRC-1608 and I could clearly see .22 LR holes at 50 yards.
