An awesome scope should have outstanding magnification. It shouldn’t be heavy (if you avoid a heavy scope, avoid the long scopes). Also, go for scopes with nice illumination you can use for hunting from dusk to dawn. Get a scope that does not have a stray light to you will regret ever buying one. Look out for scopes that have a moderate field of view, good center tube diameter, and exit pupil. More so, get a waterproof scope and weatherproof. Look out for a scope that has a good warranty and durability.
