Re: Pics of highlights from coues whitetail hunt.
This was the first time I have had these to the field. They are the EL 10x42's. They are worth every penny. They are noticably brighter and crisper than even the SLC's, which my cousin there has both the 8x30 SLC and the 15x56 SLC for a side by side comparison. After using my EL's for an hour and switching to the 15's it took my eyes 15 minutes or so to get used to the 15's. When I used the 15's for an hour and switched to the EL's, there was no need to adjust to them, it was just a perfect transition! Although the 15's had a advantage over the 10x at over 1000 yards for glassing up whitetails. I glassed for 10 hours a day for 7 days with no headaches or eye strain. Of course it helps having them mounted on a tripod. You can glass with the sun in your face with out any glare or distortion, and they see deep into the shadows very well.
Long range shooting is a process that ends with a result. Once you start to focus on the result (how bad your last shot was, how big the group is going to be, what your buck will score, what your match score is, what place you are in...) then you loose the capacity to focus on the process.
