Re: Nikon Sky & Earth Spotting Scope

Hey Matt, Thanks for the help. Sounds like I'd have to mount them sideways to get the eyepices under 3" center to center. I'll look at one again.
Still think they would make good glasses. They seem a lot clearer than others. But I'd have +$600.00 in them. Can't seem to find good binoculars in that range, anyway.

Re: Nikon Sky & Earth Spotting Scope

Larry, I have been fighting the same problem with a high priced spotting scope and think you have the same challenge. If the offset eyepiece is not movable in relation to the main body, you have to have a mount that allows the entire body to swivel while still keeping them collimated while you turn eyepieces towards each other or away from each other for getting the interpupilary distance correct for your eyes.

If the bodies are fixed, they still may be made to work for YOUR eyes but will not be sharable for others after mounting.

Good luck. I am still working on mine.

Re: Nikon Sky & Earth Spotting Scope

Randy from VA - Thanks for the help.
Bobbie Hart in Berwick, PA has been making a nice mount for Busnell Skymasters and Burris compacts. If your interested, I,ll find an address for you. Thats who I'll use to put mine together, but I wanted to make sure I can get them within 2 1/2" center to center on the eyepieces. They would be mounted on a slide for adjustment, so they can be sideways. The nearest one I can find is like an hour away, but I've traveled father for hunting stuff. Thanks for your reply. Bet the weather is getting nice in VA! [img]images/icons/rolleyes.gif[/img]

Re: Nikon Sky & Earth Spotting Scope

I am aware of Bobbys frames and may end up trying to use one. I was hoping to find one that was for larger units (mine are 80 MMs) but most I find are for telescopes and do not have the necessary adjustments.

I should call him and see if they would be suitable for larger units.
