Digital Spotting Scope Setups

#1 Post by senorgrand » Thu Jun 14, 2018 7:58 pm

OK, I'm going to have to break-down and buy a spotting scope. Especially shooting 22lr, I have a hard time seeing my hits/misses past a few yards.

I'd like a spotting scope that will pick up .22 hits at 50 yards and .30/.357 hits out to maybe 200 yards. I would also like something that I can attach a cell phone to so I can just look down at a screen instead of peering through an eyepiece. I wear glasses, and I have had a real hard time with binoculars, spotting scopes, etc. my whole life. In the past, I have resorted to using an old x3-9 rifle scope to see my targets, which for rifle shooting is passable, but is completely unsuitable for handgun shooting.

I'd also like something compact that I can take setup on the baby bench at my local indoor range.

And I'd like something for under $150.

I can send you my old one if you'd like? You can get a universal attachment on Amazon to hook your phone up to it.

Wow, thanks!

That would be great, as funds are a bit tight.
