You can also mount your spotting scope on a table, stand or any other platform. All of our spotting scopes come with a standard tripod mount, which can be used, with nearly any tripod on the market. Some spotting scopes already come with a tripod in the box. Read carefully through the product description to see if a tripod is included.

The Best Spotting Scopes for 2018
I thinking of buying a spotting scope.. I mostly uses for long range spotting, about 5 to 10 km away from a high hill looking down at a village. I wanted to buy a scope that can see high details clearly from up hill to down hill looking at a village roughly 7 km away. I want to spot thing from far away without anyone noticing it.. I wants my scope to be able to use in low light condition… Just say in all weather conditions… The cost is not a problem, so as the weight.
Which scope should I buy??? The Praktica Hydan x60 can provide comfort, clarity, plus a good performance in a wide variety of viewing scenarios. As the model name suggests, it features a large 60mm objective lens, as well as an impressively long-range reach.
