    Not an expert but have looked into this before and £100 is just going to be wasted money IMO, I believe you have to spend a great deal more to get anything of any use. £100 is just going to buy something you use a couple of times and then stick in the back of the wardrobe because it's carp.

    If your spending under £200ish a good pair of binoculars is your best bet
