How to compare spotting scope quality?

Several years ago I about fainted at the $1,250.00 price tag on the Swarovski spotting scope. I paid the price and I am sure glad I did. I could sell my Swarovski today for a profit on ebay. I love my spotting scope, I did compare it to Leica and Zeiss. I picked the Swarovski because I liked it's focus adjustment better.

Not too many things go up in value over time.

if i could afford the swaro's i'd own bino's, scopes and spotting scopes. but i can usually spring for nikon and leupolds.

i have nikon and leupold rifle scopes, leupold binos and a burris spotting scope. imo the burris is the weak link. and rarely do i wish i had binos better than the leupold mojaves in 10x42.

i usually hunt western game out of a backpack, so i take a new 12-24 power burris compact spotting scope. at high magnification, it gets fuzzy in low light. it's certainly livable. i'd love to switch to a higher end compact though!
