Probably the main reason for the lack of mention of Opticron
products is because , short of special import , they are not available in the USA.
As true Brits , we are in a great minority on this forum !
I have mentioned Opticron spotting scopes and binoculars several times over on Astromart forums , and am surprised if I haven't done so previously on here too.
I agree with you that many Opticron binos represent very good quality indeed , and excellent value for money , a fact difficult to dispute given the many serious "birders" I've seen using them here in the North West.
Your adviser advised you very well !

The American Birding Assoc. is the co's American distributor, although they do not carry the 10X50 Imagics, only the BGA roof prism 10X50s.

Thanks for the review links. I have yet to read an Internet review form Stargazers. Will keep you posted. We have only seen the Stars twice here in Manchester Area since about the 20th Dec. and the reports show rain for another 10 days at least. What it must be like to have a warm clear Californian sky?
