    Monarch 82ED, a Perfect Ten

    Baader morpheus works fine in the scope, at least 12,5, 14 and 17,5 mm works. Also apm hdc 13 and 5 mm works without any focusing problems. Bought it body only, it is a steal for the price i paid, 1400 Euro. Would say its the best scope optically in the 80-82mm range ive tried so far.

    New APM APO 85/95mm.

    I bought the xwa 13 mm to try on my meopta s2 but couldnt reach infinity focus. But it is possible to cut of the end of the barrel on the eyepiece a couple of mm. After doing so my meopta and Nikon edg 85 will reach to infinity. It should be easy to adapt it to spottingscopes since the...

    Nikon EDG 85 Fieldscope - any good?

    I got both the meopta s2 and Nikon edg 85. You would't go wrong with the edg especially if you got it for a good price. I've tried them with same eyepiece on both and they are very close optically, both are excellent. The biggest difference is the size and weight. Edg is heavier and bigger, but...

    Advice needed for a camera

    A very good Canon option is the Canon 400 5.6 l. Quick and accurate focus and superb image quality. Not to heavy. I'm using that one with a Canon 750d.

    My Noctivid are Back !!!!!!..........

    I dont think the play you se when moving the diopter would matter. I have seen it in a noctivid also, dont think it moves on the inside even if it looks that way.
