SAVER Summary: Spotting Scopes [August 2012]   [open pdf - 1MB]

"Spotting scopes come in a variety of configurations and sizes and can be used in applications where long range surveillance and observation of people or objects is necessary. Spotting scopes may be used at long ranges by law enforcement personnel to provide situational awareness in public gathering areas, such as stadiums or airports. They may also be used to investigate suspicious packages or containers from a safe distance or to read vehicle license plates and hazardous material truck placards. In addition, spotting scopes are frequently used by marksmen and snipers to identify targets at long distances, beyond the range of conventional tactical binoculars."
