For your consideration is a made in Oregon, USA Leupold 20 X 60 spotting scope with leather and canvas cover and compact Leupold tripod. The scope has a sun shield that stores in one orientation and is installed in the other.
I've provided photos with the sun shield stored and in use as well as off. The canvas and leather cover has working zippers that allow it to be used on or off the tripod. The tripod legs store inside of each other making for a very compact package. The larger leg provides tension to the mount, making it very easy to adjust your look angle. The scope provides a clear image and the focus is adjustable.I've had this for more than 25 years, so I believe it was introduced in the 90's or perhaps 80's. What many people whom have never used a spotting scope don't realize is that higher power scopes have a very limited use due to heat distortion - yes, even on a cool Fall day. 20X provides the ideal balance between target acquisition time, magnification, and heat distortion... All in a compact package that is easy to backpack with.
I've used this scope hunting mountain goats in WA-state Goat Rocks Wilderness, mule deer in UT, WY, and WA, and antelope in WY and never felt that I needed more magnification.
