One more aspect of spotting scopes to consider is whether or not you plan to
travel with it.   We travel on airplanes with ours quite a bit.   Because of
this and the desire to keep down weight and size we opted for the smaller of
a major manufacturer's newer scopes.   The optical capabilities between the
two were not that great so we gave up a bit of light gathering ability for
the convenience of much easier transportation.    Generally we pack our
tripod surrounded with jackets in a duffle bag that is checked and put our
scope in a backpack that we carry onto the plane.
