Well after playing with them at home with a very poor tripod and short viewing distance (live in the city) I finally got out to the country yesterday. With a borrowed Gitza pod I set up the Bushnell Bigeyes that Darryl built and was just amazed. The clarity and shear distance was fantastic. Field of view and quickness of acquisition leave me chomping at the bit for next hunting season. Being able to individually focus each eye is another big plus over the binos I had gotten used to. We were actually viewing things at considerably more than 1000 yds (I would estimate a mile)with ease. I did not find them comfortable for viewing under 200yds where it is tough to get a 'single circle'image but hey, that is not what they are made for. Darryl is a great gentleman to deal with. His knowledge is incredible in this arena but he shares that knowledge THOROUGHLY whenever requested. I am so glad my original Bigeyes deal fell through with the 'other guy'
