    I looking for a set of big eyes. Would love to find a set already in mounts but would also consider just the scopes. Would like Nikon,Bausch and Lomb,or older Bushnells maybe some others possibly. 20X or 25X.
    Let me know what you have and how much shipped to PA (17815)
    Thanks For the help

    My buddy Steve Hugel (sscoyote) has a set of Bushnell's that he is going to sell (99% sure-unless he changed his mind:D). Currently, he is elk hunting with a bow at the moment.
    his email address is: sshcoyote@aol.com

    If you can wait about 45 days or so, Jerry Phillips in PA (actually on his way to Wyo hunting for 30 days) has numerous sets.

    that is his specialty, big eyes and high end optics.

    However, his wife handles his email so give it a try. I am sure that she can reach him.

    Tripod doesn't come with it but the aluminum mount/bracket that holds them together does. don't know the price, but I do know that Darryl Cassel (spelling?) put the togther for him and they work great.

    Have you considered a large pair of bins (Big Bins).

    15x80, 20x80, 25x100, or 30x100... they are much lighter, no special frame, tripod mount, easier to focus, waterproof, and easy to match the spacing of your eyes.

    I had a set of big eyes, and let them go, cuz they were just too clumsy in the field... (they were a pain in the ass), and they were awkward to use.

    I now use a pair of Steiner 15x80's, and Celestron 20x80's. Resolution is great - I can easily see the moons of Jupiter with both bins. This fall, I am adding a pair of 30x100s.

    Except for the Steiners... good large bins from Asia run from $200~ish for the Celestrons, to $350-$400 for the big 25x100's and 30x100's , complete with a foam suitcase.
