Re: How\'s the price on this Kowa Bigeyes rig?

I have a question about big eyes? I know I hear alot about the B&L spotters. But what would be wrong with say a set of Burris landmark spotters in a rig? They are 15x-45x-60mm and I think could be picked up at a good price on e-bay. I was thinking of starting this way or maybe even a step down with burris mini spotters? Any thoughts on these set ups for beginners?

Re: How\'s the price on this Kowa Bigeyes rig?

After putting 45 sets of these things together over the years I can give some info concerning the glasses.

You must stay with single power eyepieces in the two spotters in a bracket system unless they the single power eyepieces are on a turret.

You can not colimate the two variables together and when you try to power up or down with a variable eyepiece, you will be off within the eyepiece. Neither will be alighned to the other.

Many of us have tried it before.

We usually use the 22x Wide angle eyepieces which seems to be ideal.

The three eyepiece setup I have in the pic is on a two rotory turret system that click each eyepiece into a colimated position.

Your better off going with just one set of eyepieces instead of thinking variable.

Sheldon,

I have Kowa catalogue and there is a person who is selling all kinds of Kowa and lives closer to your place. He lives in Dryden, ON. His company is Custom Shooting Specialties. Ph nbr: 807-223-3431.

He offered me $325CAN for TS-502 20x. It is 50mm spotting scope. The price is not bad but I found that it is still cheaper to order Kowa spotting scope in the states.

For TS-502 20x: $325CAN; $144US
TS-612 $???CAN; $258US

Just think about it, eh? I'm thinking about it too. [img]images/icons/grin.gif[/img]

Hi Denny.

The pair of bigeyes in the photo above is for sale on www.samplelist.com. We built the site, and I had one of the first looks as this set came in to stock. The scopes are about $500 each with 20-60 eyepieces, add about $300 for a second body. Add $180 x 4 more wide angle eyepieces, the bracket, case, collimating, and you end up probably around $2000. This a hell of a deal as far as I can see.
