That was my first reaction
AT will not work, straight or angled. ATS on the other hand makes for a beautiful set of big eyes, but they must be straight, not angled
I recall the first time I used a set of married "Big eyes". All day on them scoping for groundhogs and seeing lots. End of day in hot sun, no headache. Epiphany! Don't have myown set only because of cost, but loved every minute of using them.
Well - I don't see any mention yet of how well they function. Is the glass good? Do they do what you want?
Look at Kowa Highlanders. You don't need the Chromatic glass, the regular has a spectacular view. Great depth and low light. Matt
I have a pair made from the Spacemasters I use for woodchuck hunting love them .
The LAST thing you would want to do is buy two spotters counting on making them into a set of BigEyes. Some would not allow spacing to fit your eyes. Most would not work because you would not be able to buy or make the sophisticated frame to keep them collations. I have Swaro 65's in a frame not available for maybe 15 or s
I am led to believe that only the current model of Swaro 80s can be utilized for Big Eye. Problem for most is the bodies are so wide that the eyepieces cannot be close enough together for your eyes. Do measurements all you want but good luck on finding the right mount for the job.
I have practically no experience using big binos, so thanks for the advice, Randy...no sarcasm.
This site is a gold mine for anyone who wants to learn.
You gotta make your own mount or buy something like the kowas thats made together
I quit carrying my 80 mm spotting scope while hunting @ 9,000 ft. last year. The thought, of carrying 2 + the bracket and the hd tripod they would require, sends chills up my backpack.
