I'd stay away from the Osprey, Barska and NcStar.

Get her dirty, then clean her so she starts to respect you. When her trust is complete, she will serve you well for a lifetime!

What about This?

Give you the close up and distance ability with fast acquisition of the target capabilities. Just a thought.

I got to go with the crowd on this, you pay for what you get. You'll buy the cheap one then you'll see a nice one and finally kick yourself for not waiting and saving up for it. My cheap scopes got given away or just lay around the house for bird watching, the good ones get mounted and used(no pun intended).
