Spotting Scopes with 10x Magnification
If you’re in the market for a new spotting scope and are looking for 10x spotting scopes for hunting or target shooting, there are a few important details to know about. 10x spotters offer a blend of balance between magnification and field of view (FOV). Before you make your decision, check out what learn a bit about what Bushnell 10x spotting scopes have to offer.
The biggest question is: “When would I need a 10x magnification on my spotting scope?” Traditionally, 10x is a good range for both target shooting and hunting when your expected target is around 200 feet away. It still works for closer or farther targets, but 200 feet is a good middle gauge.
With every spotting scope, you have to consider the trade-off of having the increased magnification. As your magnification increases, your FOV will typically decrease. When you narrow in on a target, you limit your peripheral view.
Plus, the more magnified your spotting scope is, the more it picks up on small shakes and movements. If you don’t have a stabilizer or something to rest your spotter on, using the full 10x magnification on your spotting scope will likely cause a bit of movement in your view.
