Is there one that has an moa reticle in it. Mike
The Swaro STR can be had with a MOA reticle, about the only one i know of that is a quality scope, they're rather expensive though
The Vortex Razor spotting scope has an MOA eyepiece too.
Burris signature HD 20-60x85 and 30x moa reticle eye piece about 1300. Swarovski are awesome. Used one with eye piece about 4k. Euro optics has used spotters from time to time.
I have an STR and love it. With a turn of the knob, you can make the reticle go away if you don’t need it
One more thing. If you’re using the reticle, a gear head for the tripod makes it way nicer!
I was shopping gear heads not too long ago for a spotter. Do you recommend any on in particular?
Spotters with reticles are generaly mil and FFP or fixed .Still a rare breed other highen Swaro or Hensoldt , Midrange Leupold MK4 or low end mix of branded chicom scopes
I run a benro. Manfroto 210 is the one a few of my friends have.
I have one, good glass. Got one when they were still below $1K which is a deal. Not a fan of having the focus on the objective though. Can be a real pain when you zoom in on something then go to focus and have the movement shift the scope off what you are looking at.
Because of the design of spotting scopes, they all are "FFP." The zoom lenses are in the eyepiece, not in the body of the scope.
Reticle in FFP can not be fitted to spotter by changing the occular with all the zoom lenses , all those end up ither fixed magnification or rare variable end up being SFP. FFP reticle in spotters is very rare bird. Not that long ago we only had Leupold and Hensold offerings.
Even here in Europe where FFP is far more widespread , spotters with reticles mostly ended up fixed magnification.
In typical spotter anything you fit in occular asembly is realy SFP
You can buy a 30X eyepiece for Vortex Spotting Scopes that has an moa reticle in it. Its very nice.
