Big Eyes Brackets

Does anyone know if the Burris Landmark 20-60x80 scopes will fit Harts Brackets, and if so, do the variable powers have any problems matching up?

Re: Big Eyes Brackets

I'm glad your asking this question, because I see these scopes on ebay alot. And I think a pair could be had at a good price. How are these optics? Boyd said he is putting a pair of the burris mini spotters together. I would love to see a pic of them when he is done! And hear how they turned out!

Everybody that I talked to said that variable eye pieces cause terrible eye strain. It's to hard to get both eye pieces at the same exact power. I have two of the Burris 20-60x80 spotting scopes and they do not fit in bracket of my spacemasters. I had this idea also save your money. [img]images/icons/smile.gif[/img]

Hey guys.. I talked to Bob Hart the other day and if I'm not mistaken he said he was now using the Burris Landmark spotters instead of Spacemasters.. FWIW.. JiNC

PS- I may have a Landmark 20-60 for sale here soon if anyone needs one..

Re: Big Eyes Brackets

You can't use a variable eyepiece in a spotter setup. Once a straight power eyepiece is used, in the Spacemasters Swifts or Kowas, they will be the best glassing you have used barr none. "NO" binocular make will be as good for prolonged viewing and I'm including Zeiss.

The variable eyepieces won't match up and the eye strain is unreal in the spotters.

Must be straight powers and 20X to 22X wide angles are the most used.
