    Guys--i have these 3 sets of Big Eyes. I was thinking of selling them to get one set of 20-60x Big Eyes made up using a pair of very high quality backpacking spotting scope. Any ideas of a pair that would work? Must be 20-60 so i can "dial in" to something for microscopic viewing through one scope when needed--

    Wow! I bet. Joel--how much does it cost to put together a pair like that? I'm assuming that once they're collimated at 1 power they can't be used together at a different power?

    The 62's are hard to find as they don't make them anymore. I had a few pairs and sold them off as big eyes. Figure about $$3,700 or more depending on the cost of the glass and eyepieces.
    Once they are collomated, they are good across the entire spectrum of power.
