    I read an article not too long ago in either Sky and Telescope or Astronomy magazine (I forget which) about a guy that used a spotting scope for astronomy and loved it. Mind you, as I recall it was for low power wide field views.

    The Bible tells us God created the Universe; Science tells us how He did it; And through my telescopes I marvel at His handiwork

    It was Sky and Telescope, April 2014, p.38

    The scope should give really nice wide-field views: what aperture do you have? I notice they come in 65, 80 and 100ED's. They look great.
