    Review by 'IanF' on item '8x32 EL Swarovision'

    The EL 32 Swarovision are a delight to use. Ive been using a pair for around eight weeks now. Theyre small lightweight, well balanced and well designed with incredible optics.

    Review by 'IanF' on item 'Safari Traveller/Birdwatchers Kit - Series 2 GK2520FT'

It is a real pleasure to use, not to mention the design and green colour mean it looks good too! From the outset the high quality expected of Gtizo...

    Review by 'IanF' on item 'TSN823M & TSN 824M'

    An excellent scope for all round use with high quality fluorite glass. I had the Kowa 823 version and used the 32xW and 20-60x eyepieces.

    Review by 'IanF' on item 'ATS/STS 80HD'

    I use this scope with the 20-60x eyepiece. For normal scope use then I don\'t think it can be faulted. The eyepieces give a wide field of view and it performs very well even in low light conditions. Personally though I like to use my scope for digiscoping as well and for that I think it is less...
