Discontinued Accessories for Opticron HR66 Angled ED
|Having difficult finding independent reviews of this scope. All read the same wording, as written by Opticron themselves. For a popular make with 1 year on the market, it seems unusual.
Have you any customer feedback from use in the field ? (possibly with the zoom)
[PS we bought a Swift off you last year, excellent product it s turned out to be]
eebc - Chris.
|I would think there would be reviews somewhere, but I can not remember seeing any for the new looking model. I am sure there were reviews of the old shaped model (as currently pictured above - I must get around to updating the photo!). I should hope most retaillers would at least paraphrase or write their own descriptions depending upon their feelings for the product.
We have sold a small number of these (more of the larger 80mm model), and only usually hear comments when things either go wrong, or customers buy something else (like a new pair of binoculars) and happen to mention their previous purchase. None of the customers we have sold these to have commented on them yet.
Having seen through them, they are excellent scopes, good light and colour transmission. These are one of the scopes that really show a difference between the low cost HR and the high quality HDF eyepieces. With the HDF eyepieces, the image is so much sharper and clearer.
Eyepieces - my favourites are the HDF zoom, the 28x and the 38x HDF eyepieces.
|Do you sell the sdl eyepiece for this scope ? Thanks|
eebc - Jamie
|We do not normally keep the SDL eyepieces in stock, but can get them from Opticron quite quickly (literally only a day or two).
The SDL eyepiece when used with this scope provide magnification in the range of 18-54x and currently cost £289
