4 Tips on Celestron Spotting Scopes
1. For the hunter, sports enthusiast, birdwatcher, hiker, or sailor, nothing beats the convenience of a spotting scope. High-powered and one-handed, these compact devices are perfect for bringing a distant target into sharp focus.
2. Some Celestron spotting scopes are small enough to be pocketed and pulled out in seconds - these are great for golfers, bird watchers, or hunters. Quicker than a pair of binoculars and more practical than a small telescope, many of these spotting scopes also come with powerful zoom to adjust your view.
3. Larger spotting scopes are best mounted on a sturdy tripod. These are most often used in stationary situations like boat watching from the marina, as a high-powered finderscope while stargazing, or to focus on a family of birds or nest for a long period of time.

4. Most Celestron spotting scopes are designed to be compatible with photography equipment for use as a powerful telephoto lens. With the correct T-ring for your 35mm digital camera, you can start taking professional close-ups as easily as point-and-shoot.
