Re: Checking Collimination of Big Eyes

Thanks guys for all the info. I am going
to try all the methods before I touch any
of the adjustments. The reason I asked
about how to check them is because I get
a slight cross eyed affect when I raise
up from looking thru them after a quick
peak. After a long look thru them, the
affect is not as bad. I can not figure
that one out except maybe that I am left
eye dominant and right eye has slight
astigmatism. Whatever, being able to see
22-250 holes at 600 yds with the 20x
eyepieces just blows my mind!! GEG

I knew when we talked on the phone, you would like them. [img]images/icons/grin.gif[/img]

The problem could be your weak eye.

Enjoy

Re: Checking Collimination of Big Eyes

Hello DC, do you know of anything I can do
to help this problem short of getting corrective eye glasses maybe? Do you think
there is a chance that the collimination
could be off just a little to my eyes?
I will try to use your method and see
what it tells me! You are right on target
about how awesome these Spacemasters are!
Is there a chance I will be able to see
the 6.5's at 1000yds if I go to say a
40x eye piece? Even if I can't, maybe
my spotter will be able to see that vapor
trail you talked about!!. Thanks for all
your help and I hope to meet you in person
some day. If you ever get down to south
TEXAS, I'll put you on the biggest wild
hog you ever seen!! Thanks again. GEG

If you have eye problems it could be the problem but, check the collimation of the glasses. If you bump them hard, they could be knocked out a little bit.

You should be able to see the holes at 1000 yards with the 40X eyepieces unless you have a lot of mirage. Conditions have to be perfect though.

Your spotter can see the trail go right into the target or animal with the bigeyes.

We have been able to see the fur lay down and the bullet hole into the hide at extreme range. This only occurs when everything is perfect for viewing.

The vapor trail is how we get new shooters on target at Williamsport. Same when hunting.

Enjoy the bigeyes.

Re: Checking Collimination of Big Eyes

DC,
I took a gander through baldeagle's bigeyes
last night 1st set was out for me left glass wasn't tight he quickly corrected that. 2nd set was close for me but still pulled my eyes a little. It has to be my eyes. I do not wear my glasses when I use them. I have the very condition mentioned earlier in this thread. When he gets a chance to look through mine he ought to get floored. LOL [img]images/icons/cool.gif[/img]

Everybody has different spacing between their eyes as you know. The optics must be set for the person using the glass.
This includes collimation tecniques also.

The only way to get them as perfect as possible is to align both scopes with each other "exactly" (looking at least 1000 yards away)to begin with, then adjust the eye spacing till you have one nice round picture, then focus each eyepiece one at a time while closing the opposit eye.

With eye problems, the owner of the glasses "must" make his own adjustments till the scopes fit him exactly.
Whatever works best for him is the ideal.
