Mr Chartwell, or chill6x6, do the maven 8x30 eyepieces unscrew so you can remove them entirely?

Jgraider, I am not either of those 2 individuals, but I did own a set of 8x30 Mavens and I could remove eyepieces completely.

Thanks because I didn't know the answer. I had the B.3 for two days and returned after realizing they didn't have quite enough eye relief...

Haha! That's one of the best deals you'll ever get! High five on that one!

I have Helios 8x32; Hawke 8x43 (go to binos); Zeiss 10x42 ED Conquest and recently Opticron SR GA 8X32. I'm sure all the above companies will offer decent mid price options - especially Hawke and Zeiss. BUT, the one that have impressed me the most for the price are the Opticrons - https://www.amazon.com/Opticron-3032.../dp/B005S3AIBA The issues are - price range; porro or roof; waterproof etc - and then how the binos feel in the hand, and the look of the view.

I sold mine due to the focuser changing up on me in different temps. There were times in sub zero temps I could barely get it to turn. I've been told they have since corrected the problem.

Welcome. I liked Euro hd 8x32 better.

So people think the Vipers and similar ones are better than the Monarch 7?
