Re: Spotting scope eye relief

Just to make sure, we are talking about the Leupold 47878 12-40x60mm Spotting Scope, right?

It now comes in a tactical version with MIL-DOT reticle also. 53756.

Is this the right one?

Doug

Ouch, $750 ...

Where is the best place to get one?

    PS allot of sales pitch from different companies tell you that they have enough eye-relief for glasses.In my opinion 16-18mm eye-relief should be your minimum requirement when shopping around

    I wear tri-focals & 18mm doesn't even come close to being enough eye relief for me, I'd prefer 25mm for my needs. Without glasses there isn't enough adjustment in the ocular lens for me to focus on anything. So with my glasses on it's almost like looking through a pinhole.
