Thanks for the input PYRTLE. The Swaro HD is undoubtedly an outstanding scope but the non-HD is still a Swaro and thus far optically great. The dealer I bought it from has an STSHD and it was his...

Is the difference in image quality vastly different between the Swaro ATS65 and the ATS65HD or is marginal enough to not make economic sense to upgrade? I’ve just got the ATS65 with the 20-60x and am...

I trialled the MM4 77ED for a day last week and it’s a nice scope but I didn’t think it gave enough extra wow factor over my MM3 60ED, so I didn’t buy it.

Every scope I’ve ever had that zoomed to 60x fell down on focus at that magnification. Just looking through the Swaro in the garden the focus at 60x is really sharp. I’ll be going to WWT Martin Mere...

I donít think the MM4 ED77 is a bad scope by any means. If I looked at it without having had the MM3 ED60 Iíd probably be happy with it. However, I thought it would be significantly better then the...

Decided against trading up as I just didn’t think that the 77mm version was THAT much better than my 60mm, although the higher magnification was a plus.

Mm4ed77

Just had a look at this scope at WWT Martin Mere (I own the MM3ED60 with SDL zoom eyepiece) and was very impressed. I think a body-only trade is in the offing!

Thanks, Iíll get onto that in the very near future. Is it usual to not see any focus points in the viewfinder on modes such as 9 point? I just get the in-focus beep.

I love Vejer, used to go there when on holiday in Zahora. Found an amazing steak house and saw the dazzling display of raptors in the sky above.

PS, I hope I get an answer too!
