Spotting scopes with angles eye piece

Who owns a scope with an angled eye piece? Do you prefer it over straight eye pieces and in what situations do they really excel?

I have one with an angled eye

I have one with an angled eye piece that i use at the range and it is okay as I can sit it on the table and look through it standing,but the one issue I have is that I think it is harder to line it up where I want it.

Not sure, but think a straight one would be easier to line up wiht the target.

Why do prone shooters use them?  I would think if you're in a prone position a straight one would be easier to use?
