I'm considering selling my nice spotting scope in order to get one of those shooting range cameras. Does anyone use one or can recommend a certain brand/model?

I use the spotting scope just for range use and the camera makes more sense since it removes the heat wave look at distance and you (should) be able to i.d. where you are hitting easier.

So, what other method are you going to use to read the mirage?

I have used some.

They worked as advertised but I am afraid I cannot remember the names!!

Caldwell sells one that goes up to a mile, which sounds like the ones we have used.

You download an app and see the target on it.

That's what I am considering using from now on. Most of my shooting is done inside of 300 yards

It's your scope. Use it however you wish. You can use it to predict the weather if you wish.
I just believe that using a scope to read the mirage "boil", without some form of mirage board near the target, is futile.

Have you looked at the electronic targets? Both silver mountain and Shotmarker offer reasonably priced options. As an added bonus it also records velocity and calculates SD and average velocity along with group size.

Three ranges at which I shoot high power competitively are now using Shotmarkers for matches.

The mirage indicator is an add on option. Never leave home without it.

The electronic targets are great and I was very serious about them.

The mirage indicator was meant to be a little funny. I use my Kowa spotting scope for mirage. That is why there is a picture of it.

My sincere apology.
