    Jerry Phillips in PA has several for sale. Saw them this weekend at the World Open.

    Call him at (215) 757-5037. Tell him Herman Harke gave you his number.

    He also has other dual lenses systems that are better optics IMO. Has Kowa, Zeiss etc that can see 6mm bullet holes at 1000 yards.

    You also should look at what is called "BigEyes" ie two spotting scopes put side by side and collimated together. Real easy to look through, good optics and much cheaper. Have a set (Bushnell Spacemasters) selling with tripod adapter, carry case for $800

    Jerry also has smaller bigeyes and might have one set of larger spacemasters left.
