    Opticron Aurora BGA VHD 10x42 quick review

    Here's the context. I've been using Zeiss Conquest HD 8x32 for birdwatching for the last year or so with no real complaints. I wanted some 10x binoculars as I frequently visit large water sites and wanted a bit more magnification for days when I wouldn't take a scope to look at those birds which...

    Hawke service - good experience in UK

    Just thought I’d give a shout out to Hawke in the UK. My Frontier EDX 8x32 had gone out of alignment - it was impossible to get the dioptre adjustment correct even though there is almost no difference between my eyes. I got a quick reply to my email enquiry and had them sent off, fixed and...

    TSN 773 - any experience?

    Hello, I'm looking at options for a scope. I had a look at an 883 in a shop that had a fairly limited range of products on offer and I liked it very much although I was only able to compare it to a couple of lower and mid range options. Possibly, I will buy one but it is more than I really...

    Hello from Surrey

    Never too late too learn. As I approach retirement, I have become a new birdwatcher - we have stayed a number of years on the North Norfolk coast and hence always enjoyed Titchwell and, this year, Snettisham too. I have been making the most of bird reserves nearer to home and plan to do it a lot...
