Vixen's entry-level scope, the Geoma II 25x52 Spotting Scope, is a collapsing-body model that's perfect for casual observing from a monopod, car window mount, or even hand-held upon occasion. There's an optional zoom lens (a small 25x eyepiece is standard), and the body has a unique portal which will hold your eyepiece not in use. This scope is so cute that it is unthreatening to newbies, and can be a good secondary device to use (with your binocular as your main stable entry) on a wildlife observing excursion.
This is the straight viewing version of the Geoma II 52; an angled viewing model's also available. Most users will prefer locating their subject with a straight viewer, but the angled viewing models are easier to share in a group. If observing from an elevated position, a straight viewing model's preferable.
