Re: Harts Big eyes

We have had the brackets for Kowas and other large spotters for years.

We just try to keep the price down and offer a fantastic set of glasses by using the Spacemaster.
For the money they can't be beat regardless if this is 2003 or not.

Now with that being said, the Kowa 77mm and 82mm have been put togther for many years now. As per my eyes, they are no better then the Spacemasters and considering the cost is over twice as much, most people lean toward the Spacemasters.

Even the Swarvorsky 80mm have been put together in a bracket at a price of around $4000.00 or more.
The optics are some of the best you will find and the price is right up there.

If a person can find the Spacemaster 78-1800 I have brackets for them.

The 60mm Swifts make a dandy set-up also.

The pic posted by Jake is the 66mm Kowa and I have the 77mm Kowa set up which is a bit larger.

Re: Harts Big eyes

MOA,
The Kowa mounts have been available for years. Most LR hunters here in PA as well as other states have the Bushnell Spacemasters. They are out there but ya have to do your homework. Glass to Glass I personally can't justify the price difference. You could put several sets of spacemasters together for just one set of the kowa's.(unless your lucky like Jake in NC) But to each his own. Do what's best for you. Give Jerry Phillips a call he'll be more than glad to fix ya up. [img]images/icons/shocked.gif[/img] [img]images/icons/grin.gif[/img] Unless you like givin money away I'd stay away from that bird.

Re: Harts Big eyes

DC,
What your $ for a bracket?
Do you have any of the good eyepieces?

Re: Harts Big eyes

Hello Butch

I have some (not very many) of the good eyepieces held back for when I come across Spacemasters.

You can look at the Swift 22X Wide angle and I think they made some of them for Bushnell.
They even come in the same color box as Bushnell.

What power are you looking for? I do have some odds and ends such as straight 20X up to 60X. Problem with the 60X is, it's like looking through a BB. They are not very clear and sharp.

The brackets go from $150.00 and up.

A real good set of glasses are the "old" B&L 60mm Balscopes put togther.
I just sold a pair with turrets on and used the same bracket that I use for the Spacemasters.

Take care.
DC

Re: Harts Big eyes

DC,
I was lookin for a new set of 25x or 22wa the one set I have look a little yellow. I like the 25x the best. The only fault of them is when your in close its like lookin up an elephants arse through a straw. I also am gonna need a new bracket I have a set to put together that's been layin around.

Re: Harts Big eyes

Butch

The 25X is not a wide angle but, they will be sharp all the way to the edge of the glass.
This is called a "flat field."

The Wide angle's are a bit fuzzy about the last 1/4 of the way to the viewing edge. It's the nature of the wide angle eyepieces. The higher the power the more it is noticable.

The 25X are VERY good and I use them in my Kowa 77mm.

I'll have to look and see what I have as far as 25Xs. I think I sold the last set to a fellow at the range.
