Quote:Nice first impressions. thanks Quote: I can spot no sign of any light baffles near the objective lenses which would have the effect of reducing their appeture. Typically, there are no aperture reducing baffles anywhere near the aperture. Aperture reduction is generally caused by the deep baffle just before the prisms housing, or it is caused by the prism housing itself.edz
Quote:chgomonitor, Thank you for your review.I have a question about the two different Garret models,I can not decide between the UL and WL,in the case of the WL there is a aluminum center-bracket that also centers the weight front to back, and connects the front tubes solid together (is this a good thing?),all the the cost of weight and I guess other points unknown to me. Could I get some pros and cons on the two different mounting types on the UL / WL. Thank you Vincent
