    Cheap spotting scope

    Got a mate's birthday coming up, want to get him something better at identifying animals than the 10x40 binos which isn't a huge ask. Budget is a couple hundred or so. Anyone looking to sell?

    Cheers!

    Thanks for that, something like that could be a goer.

    I just broke off a big chunk of one of my teeth so we'll see if there's any money left after that... I'm guessing no.

    Have a barka that I got originally, works fine but loses a lot of light over 40x. My advice is keep saving and get something a bit better, got a period and quality of glass is noticeably better

    What's the max you are wanting to pay? I've got a Nikon Prostaff 3 16-48x60 lying around that I don't use.

    Probably nothing now that I've buggered my tooth. Flick me a PM with what you want for it though and I'll be in contact when I know what's going on there? Cheers!
