A friend just sent me this email query, and as I am also a beginner with
nearly no knowledge of scopes, I'd like to pass it on to you wonderful
folks for suggestions -- please reply to alexam at u.washington.edu -- thank
you kindly! -Alex MacKenzie, Seattle

My friend's email:
A friend at work wants to get her mother, who has recently gotten into
birding and who has only one functional eye, a scope for Christmas. Her
mother is not all that hardcore (yet) and my friend has a limited budget
so she wants something good but not professional. I said I¹d ask you for
recommendations. Do you have any? Brands to consider, minimum settings to
seek out, whatever?

Please advise and thanks ever so.
