I have a Konus and love it ... but mine is an angled model. Don't know if they make a straight through model.

There is NO substitute for large objectives, though ... this I can tell you with complete certainty. My Konus with an 80mm objective is so much brighter than any 60mm spotting scope I have ever used. It also makes it a lot more useful in low light situations. You probably don't need any more than 25x in terms of magnification, but it seems that most are 20-60x or some kind of range like that.

2nd on the Konus. You can't beat them for the money, IMO. I have a 20-60x with an 80mm objective. I can see .22 cal holes in the black st 200 yards. You should be able to find one for less than $200.
