Optolyth

Hi,
Does anyone know where I can find e/r specs for optolyth scopes (and bins for that matter. They dont seem to be on their website.
Im particularly interested in the Mini 15-45x80.
Thanks

A bit more delving found out it’s 20mm e/r.

I’m intrigued by the 15x mag and 80mm objective. Should be very bright and 15x is easily handholdable.

Boogieshrew,
The Optolyth draw tube telescopes I have investigated, see WEB-site of House of Outdoor, show that the Optolyths have a considerable lower light transmission (around 70%) as the ones of Meopta and Swarovski. Moreover the colour reproduction is shifted to the red.

Thanks Gijs. Have read other opinions that Meopta and saro might be the better option.
Shame as I like the 15x ow mag.
