First day out with new scope. Started with a lecture at Padilla Bay Interpretive Center and field trip with William Clark, author of the two major hawk field guides used by most of us. Very interesting stuff from a guy who follows hawks around the globe. Field trip: Four of the five N American falcon species (missed the gyr), red tails, Harlan's hawks, eagles of all ages, Cooper's hawk, harriers,-everything the flats can offer. The visual image the 76 gives is stupendous. A fabulous birding scope, though atypical in several ways (90 degree viewing angle rather than 45 or straight), heavier than most and not waterproof. But for image and color, absolutely amazing. Also, for birding, it needs Tele Vue to produce a field case like the Ranger and other birding scopes offer. From a distance of 300 feet I could distinguish the brown iris and dark pupil of a Harlan's hawk, see every feather's texture. The best birding scope I have ever looked through. And, the proof of the pudding- unlike my Ranger, photos taken through the 76 with my Coolpix 995 no longer have a blue halo around them. Near perfect color. Incredible. Jerry

Thank you Jerry Eisner!
