An idea/Challenge to the spotting scope manu's!!

I had an idea that I want to send out the manufacturers of spotting scopes. one of the hardest things about using a spotter alot is the strain it puts on your eyes. One is always closed while using the other. this gets very tiring! I could go spend a fortune on a set of quality big eyes OR......

wait for it.......


can you feel the suspense in the air yet......


How about developing a eyepiece that would fit in the spotter I already have that would allow you to use both eyes! I would love an eyepiece that I could put on my Kowa Prominar TSN-884 that I could look through both eyes at the same time.

They do it with night vision and range finders so how bout it?????

    What you want exists but not as an add-on for a Kowa:

    I haven't seen or used one.

    That's exactly what I am looking for. No reason Kowa couldn't develop one for the Prominars I wouldn't think. I bet the eyepiece would run $700 for the Kowa though. My Kowa is a straight model and is great for looking straight across or down. It would be nice to have a angled spotter for being able to look "up". Hmmmm ;)
