Has anybody come up with any solutions to the problem of eyeglasses fogging up while birding in a mask? I tried pushing my mask just up under the nose pads on my eyeglasses. That limits the fogging but seems to make it hard for me to properly focus my eyes using a telescope or...
I'm seeking a camera that is suitable for a novice camera user (e.g., point & click, no training needed) to take documentary photos of birds I see in my 8x 42 binoculars. Would a new Canon PowerShot SX730 HS Digital Camera accomplish that goal?
I'll be visiting Las Vegas St. Patrick's Day weekend and would like to do some birding within 60 miles drive of Las Vegas. Can anyone recommend any locations that are good for birding this time of year? Are there any Audubon sanctuaries or National Wildlife Refuges or similar that provide...
I own a Pentax PF-65ED-A II Angled 65mm ED Spotting Scope with a Pentax SMC 6.5-19.5mm XF Series 20-60x Zoom Eyepiece. I would like to find a way to attach a cap to the eyepiece (permanently) that is removable in the field. Pentax provides a cap but it falls off with little...
I am looking for a pair of budget binoculars & found these two Nikon models. From a birder's perspective are there many differences between the two models? The field of view looks better on the Trailblazers. I have been able to try out the Trailblazers at a store & they seemed passable...
Minox Warranty Service- How Long to Repair?
Please accept my belated thanks for your reply. Does anyone have experience with Minox warranty service in the US? How quick were they? How good a job did they do?

had to be sent to an unspecified location on the US west coast
for repair. Minox claims 4-6 weeks will be the time
for repair. I am curious if...

I am considering buying a pair of (last year's model) Minox HG 8.5x43 BR ASPH
(Part# 62155) Binoculars. What do users think of them? How strongly do you recommend them (or not)?
Thanks for all of the advice regarding a scope purchase. I have decided to buy a Pentax 65 mm ED II (Angled Body) from Amazon. I have always liked angled scopes better so I am going to get another. While Adorama had the lowest price, Amazon had the second best price & I had a gift...
Hi Punkman, Kevin, Bitterroot, & Stereo,
Thanks very much for your detailed follow-up. I think I am going to buy the PF65 EDII Angled. Does anyone want to recommend a vendor that is cheap for Pentax?

Hi Bitterroot Birds,
Thanks for your reply. Your experience with your Pentax scope leaves me concerned. Just to be clear, at no point was your scope dropped or banged prior to cracking? Please let me know.
