Nice Old Bushnell Featherlight 11 8x36

This was a nice find, an old Featherlight 8x36, it gives an excellent image, views very much like my 8x36 Custom, and looks quite similar, a slightly different body shape, and does not have the twist out eye cups like the custom. I have fitted those feild optics eye wings to it and it is very nice to use despite it's age. 388ft@1000yds FOV, fully coated, ultra violet filters, lovel deep blue coatings unmarked, it has a dent on one objective rim, which is a shame as otherwise it's unmarked condition and clean inside.

Weighs 25oz, which I guess is not bad for a binocular of this size, magnesium body but decent size prisms.

Oh dear...that's a beauty.
The pre-Customs seem to have a little less eye-placement generosity
but a bit sharper field edges. Awesome. I like the trade-off more
towards the Featherweight field.

That is great condition...most Customs get used hard for decades.
They still work great though.
