Default What Spotting Scope

I need to buy one this weekend.

What spotting scope do you have and what is your opinion on it?

This probably won't be very helpful, but I use a Meade spotting scope from Radio Shack. It came with three eye pieces, a barlow lens and tripod. For $15, I couldn't pass it up. It shows me my target crisp and big, which is all I use it for.

I've been thinking of a Celestron unit, just under 100 bux (canadian) and 30x to 90x, anyone got one of these?

I bought my Burris Landmark for just under $200 with a hard case and have been very happy with it. I use it for much more than just range spotting. My family members are bird watchers and amateur astronomers, so we use it day and night.

Leupold's Wind River spotting scopes are hard to beat. Leupold's Gold Ring spotting scope is great, but very expensive.
