Nikon Monarch Fieldscope ED82 vs Kowa, Meopta etc

Good evening all,

Does anyone have experience with the Nikon Monarch ED82 Fieldscope? It seems quite reasonably priced, but it does not seem to get much of a mention on forums like this one.

How does it compare to scopes like the MeoStar S2 and Kowa TSN773/774/883/884?

Also, how do the 20-60x and 30-60x eyepieces compare to MeoStar's 20-70x and Kowa's 20-60x and 25-60x?

Hopefully someone will be able to provide some insight.

Cheers,

Koen

I reviewed the Monarch 82ED here:

I found it to be extraordinarily good, a real sleeper.

Thank you Henry, that was a good read. This review seems quite favourable as well https://www.rokslide.com/nikon-monar...82ed-a-review/

Makes you wonder why the scope doesn't get mentioned more often.
