Spotting scopes etc; It would seem that most of the Celestron range are currently 'out of stock' and there does still does seem to be a general shortage of the usual 'scopes' presumably due to distributional problems from China [?], there is a number of other ranges / makes that I have never come across before. I particularly noticed the 'Gosky' or 'GoSky' [?] range of spotting scopes listed on the Internet, as possibly a good medium range [cost wise] alternative. Has anyone here tried any of these? regards maf
Noticed that Amazon still had a few Celestron Ultima 65mm zoom spotting scopes [18x minimum magnification.] with 45 degree eyepiece. About 11 years ago I did have one of these which was good at the lower magnifications, so sent for one, 'Next day delivery' and used it this morning. It fills the gap that currently existed between my 80mm Hawke zoom spotter [an excellent scope, but sometimes a bit chunky] and 8x42 monocular. [amended from duplicated entry on 11th April] regards maf.
