Big Eye Spotting Scope Brackets

Im considering buying one of the following, Doctor 30x,40x,25-50x, Kowa Highlanders, or having two spotting scopes mounted side by side. This will be used for long range glassing. I have looked through 40x and 25-50x doctors and like them but they lack the clarity of my Swarovski 20-60x80 spotter has. Im told the Kowa is better in clarity but I don't like the angled eye pieces for long periods of glassing.

Does anybody have a pair of spotting scopes mounted side by side in brackets? I have been told that it is not the way to go as the collimation is easily knocked out of alignment. I would think with a good quality bracket this would not be a problem? I would really like to go the bracket route but they must be able to take some abuse as they will be bouncing around in a pelican case in the back of Polaris ranger quite a bit.

Anybody have some experience with them?

It's custom made...Kevin at montour county rifles makes them

He does brackets for bushnells, kowas, nikons and weavers...also the older celstrons.

Kevin makes a good bracket, and has made quite a few over the years.

Here's a few pictures of a set of my big eyes with the bracket that I made when I had some extra time on my hands...

Very nice Joel. Has anyone tried the Rouge River double spotter? Will it resolve bullet holes at 500M or beyond under reasonable conditions?

Thanks Gene. I've personally never tried the Rogue River glass, but heard mixed reviews from a few guys that have. I have no need to look any further than my Leica set.. No pun intended..
