+1 on Vortex. You should be able to get into a Viper spotter.

I also like the Celestron Regal ED series in this price range.

Best glass for less then $500 in my opinion is the Minox MD50, it is small but perfect for backpacking. Cameralandny has demo units for $229. But if you want a bigger heavy spotter the vortex will be the next step up.

Also don't forget to budget for a tripod. If you add a few dollars, B&H photo has a used nikon ed50 for just over $500 also. Just click the used tab on their website.
