Spotting Scopes

Spotting Scopes – you will get a great deal of use from. Sometimes, using a pair of binoculars is not enough to view an object or target from afar. There are times when using binoculars, they are just too limited for long-distance viewing. For this viewing limitation, Spotting Scopes can pick up where binoculars leave off. For pure enjoyment, looking at a subject from a distance, using a spotting scope is a game changer.

It is important to opt for the best scope within your budget.

Spotting Scopes

Like telescopes, spotting scopes are high-magnification instruments designed to see objects from a distance, they are specifically designed for use on land (but can also be used for astronomy!). This makes them a great choice for anyone wanting to make the most of their view from home, the batch or taking on bird-watching trips. Their small size and rubber housing’s lend themselves excellently to spending hours outdoors, far better than a heavy, more fragile telescope. But their benefits don’t stop there. With magnification equivalent to a lens of 1,250 to 3,000mm, they outshine binoculars or even a 500mm telephoto lens in a big way.

While you can certainly use a telescope for terrestrial viewing, they aren’t specifically designed for that task. Conversely, the spotting scope wasn’t designed to look at the moon and planets, but it does a pretty good job of that when needed. The spotting scope can look at the moon, planets, and some deep sky stuff, but it also can look at birds, activity on the water, the animals on the farm, wildlife, and more without missing a beat. Your family member’s interest in the stars may fade, but almost everyone loves watching birds, boats, and other things up close.


Buying telescopes can feel like a big step, especially if you’re not sure what all those terms mean. So, to help you understand what to look for in a quality telescope, read below for all of the details.

We carry a small range (4-6 models) here at Coast Photo, it is always best to get in touch and we can let you know if the model you are keen on is in stock! And if not, – we can arrange this pretty quickly provided the suppliers have stock available.

Feel free to reach out and we will give you a hand. 🙂

We live in a rather crazy and fast paced world. And it can be difficult to take some time to unwind and do something contemplative, It just goes almost without saying that the universe is a mysterious and remarkable place. But there is much more to it, there is also a feeling that comes along with viewing – it is a feeling of awe and wonder.

There is something very significant about seeing the universe.

You cannot help but think about the nature and mystery of life when looking up at the night sky. There is something about astronomy that evokes a philosophical train of thought.

You may have felt this before when looking up at the stars. 🙂
