Swarovski ATX95 Owners

I am just currious as to how many here own this spotting scope. I am just awaiting the arrival of mine on Thursday.

Does anyone using this ATX95 own the Swarovski Tripod and Fluid Head sold as a package deal? I already have several nice Gitzo Carbon Tripods but wondering if its worth it to pick one of these up for my new ATX95..?

I wouldn't bother. I've got the Swaro carbon setup and whilst the legs are okay the head isn't that good. I've had to replace the head and now no longer use either. I've gone over to Gitzo which is a good deal better in my opinion.

I have also several large CF Gitzo Model # GT5549LS and Novaflex and Arca Swiss Heads, I was just wanting the entire setup to match..

Ah! If that's the case then 'fill your boots' as we say this is side of the pond.

Good luck.

I have the 95mm and 65mm. Short review here http://horukuru.blogspot.my/2014/01/...telescope.html

I used the 65mm for longer walk in the forest and 95mm for open country birding hehehe

Yves
how often have you had to send in to Swarovski so far?

seems odd that it hasn't been fixed the first time round. If it was a lubricant/grease issue, you'd think they'd have picked up on it and changed it.

cheers

Hi Jeelan
Every 18 months to 2 years the cussingring become "hard" to move I mean thar the focussing is not smooth. I can still use it of course

Did you buy the A or S Eyepiece..? I purchased the ATX95 along with the Swarovski DH101 Tripod head and Tripod. I need to get it out and try it out..It must be a pleasure to see through..

I also have the atx 95 but I have the impression that the former ats is sharper
My brothers Kowa 883 gives also better correction on CA
Atx is rather heavy and with BTX will be heavier too

In the theoretical design world a 95 ATX has substantially better resolving power than an 80 ATS. Alas, in the real world of sample variation a cherry ATS might be sharper than a lemon to mediocre ATX.

As For CA, we don't know what glass type is used in the 95 ATX, but it looks like Swarovski chose to usie an ED glass type and/or an objective design that doesn't correct longitudinal CA quite as well as the Fluorite design of the 883/4. So every 883/4 should have lower longitudinal CA than any 95 ATX.
