Spotting scopes are excellent optical devices for terrestrial or land observation for activities such as birdwatching, hunting, surveillance, and scenic viewing. Their magnification usually range from 20 to 60x and they may be designed with either straight or angled eyepieces to suit different activities and personal preferences.

Similar to telescopes, spotting scopes' light-gathering ability and resolution are determined by the diameter of its objective lens, which usually ranges from 50 to 80mm. Generally, a larger objective lens diameter equals better light-gathering capacity, which means brighter and clearer images. However, the bigger the objective lens, the bulkier and more expensive the spotting scope, so do think about what you're willing to trade-off when you're purchasing your spotting scope.

Similar to binoculars, spotting scopes use small refracting objective lenses and image erecting lenses or prisms to project an image that is right-side-up. Due to their rugged design and increased durability, spotting scopes are especially suitable for outdoor use for hunting, nature observation, or surveillance, but it's best to get a tripod especially if using spotting scopes over an extended period of time.
