Your spotting scope is 20x-60x magification,i.e. things look 20-60 times larger than normal size.

How to determine the zoom of a lens?

A lens that goes from 2mm to 20mm is a 10x lens. X is not an absolute value but a relative one. My understanding is you divide the focal length of the telephoto by the “normal” focal length of your camera, to find the power.
