A good Kowa 773 can be had for less than the ats65 costs used, I picked up a mint example with 20-60x and 30xw for 850 from a UK dealer. A vastly underrated scope on these pages generally I think...

Hi Jon, I don`t know the Nikon so can`t comment how the EL compares, however I have the 8x32FP, to be honest as 32mm bins go IMHO the el is in a class of its own, any brightness it gives up compared...

H i Slingworks thanks for the hands on experience, sounds like I really must try one out, I`m willing to accept a little less fov for viewing comfort.

Cheers.

Kowa TE-20H 25x LER Eye Piece

Hi all,

Anyone using this eye piece ?, I quite like the idea of getting a full fov with the eye comfortably away from the scope.

I recently picked up a 773 and 20-60 but would like a fixed power.

Do dogs do more harm than all the cats left to roam and hunt everywhere with zero responsibility placed on the owners, I find dead birds in the garden from neighbours cats frequently.

Well, I did have to make adjustments to the diopter on my 2 UV and 1 FL after periods of use, I`v never had to do the same on the 3 sv`s I`v had, I just put it down to the diopter creeping over time.

Th el is the only integrated focus/diopter system I`v experienced that does not suffer from diopter creep, I`m pretty certain that`s why the spring is there.

There`s something about the view which keeps pulling me in, in simple terms and to my eyes, to use an HDTV analogy, the SV is like the normal picture preset, the NV is like the dynamic preset, but...

Not the highest praise of the view Dennis.

I`m less keen on the ergonomics but the only problem I have with the view is I find them too contrasty like a UHDTV set to dynamic.
