Spotting scopes are superior to conventional binoculars in terms of some special features, and magnification is one of them. With higher magnifications, a spotting scope works a way better than a binocular allowing hunters and wildlife lovers to view distant birds, moving wildlife, static natural scenery, and other distant objects. Without a spotting scope, a hunter needs to stay back from his/her wildlife adventure or observation. However, magnification comes in no specific limits. There are two things to consider if you want to know how much magnification a spotting scope comes with.

Observing the Atmosphere

Atmosphere comes first when you are serious about figuring out the level of magnification suitable for your job. The atmosphere of your desired hunting location or viewing spot always matters most as it shapes how you would view things at a distance. Image quality has a lot to do with the dust, glare, humidity, heat waves, air currents, and wind, and image quality is associated with the magnification. The higher magnification you use, the lower image quality you receive. On some days, you cannot expect anything crispy and good with the magnification level higher than 30x. however, some days can be so great for you that you can easily receive great views using a magnification level higher than 60x. Some

As a general rule of the nature, dry climates and high altitudes are favorable when it comes to high magnification, but the same cannot be expected when the day is wet with a lot of humidity and low-altitude. It is recommended, on those days, you avoid doing something that requires such a higher magnification. The number of locations allowing hunters or observers to use higher than 60x in magnification during the daytime is not very large. So, the majority of experienced hunters adopt the golden rule of magnification that is 60x.

Beginners’ Mistake

Sometimes, people who are new to the adventure are seen to get a high-quality telescope that can deliver magnification at a level much higher than what a standard spotting scope would deliver. Most of them do it hoping to receive greater magnification during daytime, but it barely works like that. In most cases, the magnification is restricted to only 60x and the nature is responsible for such a limitation.

There are several factors dependent on how nature acts on most hunting occasions. It is more than the daylight that decides how much details you can get out of one scoping trial. If you want to get some of the tiniest details like facial features, blurry spots or some small features of objects, it is recommended you do not count on the magnification power even though it is one of the top spotting scopes ever made.
