I guess the bird world is slowing down after breeding season, now that Autumn is approaching (OK, it's here officially, but it doesn't look or feel it here), there are less birds in the bushes and...

Thanks for the reply, Frank. Too bad about Tract and Nikon. I'm sure CMBO is a good organization-just curious about why it's limited like this. So, no used binoculars for sale then, I take it to...

Thanks Frank, I was searching for this a little while back, but didn't remember the name of the show, so your post took me surprise, now that it is here. So, Tract Optics is not participating? I...

Personally, I have found many times that having the eyecups as low as possible (or maybe one up from there) opens up the view so much in many binoculars, that it makes viewing a relaxed pleasure, and...

Yes, I know what you mean about things coming together, when all works as it should, and being able to see better than usual. 40-50 meters is a long way, similar to my regular viewing distance, and...

Yes, Mike, it was a good day for me, no doubt! I think if you had a pair of Zeiss FL 7x42's, you would be hard pressed to let them go! Especially since you already know FL's too.

This seems to work best for me too, with the eye cups all the way down, or at least, just out a little, to avoid smudges from fingers or eyelashes, etc. I love the difference in wide open viewing it...

Well, it seems my A/C just needed some time off to recover-it's running OK now-probably just overworked and underpaid! ; )
