Re: spotting scopes swarovoski vrs bushn elite
Correct, no spotting scope will cut through or elimainate mirage. The best way to help this is to have a scope that delivers the best clarity and resolution as possible. Also you are correct in that fixed eye pieces will give better resolution as well as clarity.
Bottom line is this: Is there 1400 bucks worth of differance between swaro and bushnell? That depends on what you need or want. When I am looking at a dall ram at 3 air miles, I want as much performance as possible to decide if I am going to walk that 3 air mile over the harshest terrain on earth. For me, it is worth having the best of the best. That is why NONE of my optics wear the name Bushnell and all of my optic except my rifle scopes wear the name Swaorvski. It just depends on how much performance you need.
Long range shooting is a process that ends with a result. Once you start to focus on the result (how bad your last shot was, how big the group is going to be, what your buck will score, what your match score is, what place you are in...) then you loose the capacity to focus on the process.
