I am looking at a new spotting scope and have narrowed it down to the Konus Konuspot 20-60x100 Spotting Scope and the Celestron Ultima 100 Spotting Scope 52252 100mm. Price wise the are comparable. I plan on using them for match shooting. I know the pros and cons of 100mm being heavier to carry and a bit more than needed for 200 yard and 300 yard match shooting, but I like the added benefit of more light capture with the 100mm scopes. Both scopes have similar features with the exception of the Celestron which does not have a ring for rotating the scope, but does have a a greater zoom of 66x as opposed to 60x with the Konus. Has anyone had experience with these scopes? I have not, but would like to get opinions and purchase this week if possible. The reviews online have not been helpful, so I thought I would reach out the members and see what everyone thinks.
