    Leica 8 x 32 Ultravid HD plus

    Hi Eitan Thanks for that. Yes I was looking at the 8 x 25s ,Swaro and Zeiss and also the New SF 8x 32 but the compact size of the Ultravid and its build quality which looked similar to the Noctivid impressed me.

    Leica 8 x 32 Ultravid HD plus

    Thanks John. I am keen as have the Noctivid 8 x 42 which is very compact, solid build and finish and with a great ER. The 8x32 looks as good ,as you said a little gem, and ER was the only concern.

    Reasons not to buy Zeiss SF 8x42?

    I have both the, Zeiss SF and the Leica Noctivid 8 x 42s. The Leica is compact the finish solid and ofcourse the very sharp optics. The Zeiss weighs almost the same, but feels much lighter brighter and sharper with a great FOV..i love it....but the build/finish looks a bit cheaper but iam...

    Any new spotting scopes on the horizon?

    A sort of zoom extender for the Swaro BTX. Kowa 883 and ATX still going very strong with astro/birders.....The new Zeiss not that great a sensation....so the rest must be thinking .

    Kowa 883 v Swaro ATX 95

    Very true....The Kowa package is cute...compact..solid value for money and has a one very special advantage over the Swaro ..it allows 1.25 astro eyepeices ..a very compact 1.6x extender.....no wonder its still going so strong even after a decade.

    Gitzo Gimbal head

    Hi All Can a Swarovski BTX /95 scope be fitted on the new Gitzo Gimbal head without any additional plates.Thanks Vaidya

    Kowa 883 v Swaro ATX 95

    With both having exceptional optics and mechanics ....for me Swaro is the better choice as its more versatile due to its modular nature ...say a BTX or the 85 objective at a later date .Cloudynights and Binomania both cover it very well (:
