Hello! Amateur birder / better astronomer from LA

Hi everyone - your equipment reviews have been so helpful to me.

Thank you all!

Also I am a dad of a scarlet macaw and I think they are over rated. Although I love her dearly.

Thanks awesome people!

I can’t seem to figure out how to post in equipment. I’m sorry.

Can anyone tell me whether in even the new Swrovskis (SV and SLC) one always has a sticky point if you focus hard or quickly to infinity? I need to know whether to send them in. But it’s weird it affects both. Very nicely used 8x32 Sav and a brand new SLC

You need to post your question in the Swarovski forum here: https://www.birdforum.net/forumdisplay.php?f=443

The click on the large red New Thread button at the top. Then jut type a subject heading and your message in the pane underneath.

Hope this helps.
