Re: Lenses for spotter- yes again!

I see what you mean, very fiddly in the field, zoom and focus are nor easy to get right in the dark.

Re: Black sun ruby

I see the BS Ruby is designed for 1 battery, i.e. 4.2v max.
So there is no on board regulator I assume.

Does anyone know if a 2 battery version will become available?
My DIY system used 8.4v for everything.

Thanks

Re: New scope from Falcon...s18i

I ended up getting a great deal on a falcon m18+, ffp 4-18x44. It works great with night vision, the fine cross hairs are clearly visible, without illumination. From x4 to X15 it's clear as a bell, but just as you approach x18 it gets dimmer but still usable. I guess the 50mm objective would be even...

Re: New scope from Falcon...s18i

Thanks , that's the M18+ right?
It get great reviews alright.

The 10% discount weekend is making this one hard to resist.
Illuminated reticle too! Yum yum.

I can't figure out why the hawke is mil /moa , doesn't make sense to mix them
Mil /mil or moa/moa is the way to go, especially with FPP.
