Two eye Swaro spotter
« on: March 03, 2017, 05:24:30 PM »
Anybody had a chance to look through the new two eyed spotters from Swarovski yet? I just saw these, not sure when they came out, looks like they could be awesome though! No more fatigue from one-eyeing it all day

They are not supposed to ship until May.   It's just $2700 eyepiece for your existing atx/stx modular objective.   :chuckle:

If I was gonna go with a pair of legit big eyes, I'd spend the money on a pair of Doctors.  As much of an optics nut as I am, I won't be ordering this one.

I guess if you already had that scope then yeah it's just an eye piece.

I've already got the 95mm objective and I'm not going for it.   You'd need a 85 or 95 to really utilize the 30/35x

Those Doctors are nuts. Guess they are pretty popular in Arizona.

The 40x80 ED extra wide angle are nuts.  I sat next to a guy with a pair for 7 days last fall and it wasn't even fair.

Not sure I would spend $2700 to convert a perfectly good spotter to a fixed 30 power binoc.  I think adding a 15x binoc would be a better choice except for weight.  But I really like turning spotter up to full power often.

After rave reviews from guys I trust, I had no choice but to order a BTX and a 1.7x extender.  With an STX eyepiece, 95mm and 65mm objectives, I should have an option for every scenario I could run into.
