Straight spotting scopes have a straight-through design that, ergonomically easier to use than angled spotting scopes. With this design you can easily spot target objects, very convenient for youth hunters. Due to quick aim you can easily follow fast moving target object or subject, especially convenient for law enforcement applications in conjunction with guns. They are highly convenient when using them when hiking on the mountains and scanning the surroundings down into the valley or any other observations below your own level. Because they don't have rotatable eyepieces as the angled spotting scopes, they require a lot of adjustments. It's important to change the aim according to the height of individuals. Straight spotting scopes usually requires higher position. Legs of a tripod must be quite extended, which gives less steady images. Extended legs of a tripod also provide less protection when facing the extreme terrain, they can easily fall when facing the wind, so it’s very important to use robust and tough tripods or weight it down with to keep it firmly to the ground. This would be especially recommended for individuals with above average height that need a higher adjustment. They are less comfortable for bird watching, astronomy and other prolonged long-distance observations with spotting scopes.
