Other than Vortex Viper PST, is anyone making a moa/moa scope above 16x that is illuminated in the 1000 dollar price range? I read both good and bad about Vortex, mainly the quality of glass. How is it compared to the Leupold VXIIIs (I have a a couple old ones). Thanks

To my eye the Vortex PST is quite comparable to the VXIII scopes.  It's good glass but I dont think it is anywhere near Zeiss glass which is very good glass.
If you want a 1/4 moa click scope with a MOA based reticle you should look at Nightforce.  Most of the new scopes coming out are Mil Mil.
If you can live with Mil Mil the new Super Sniper 5-20x50 is available to be ordered until June 17 I believe with the Snipers Hide discount which is a huge bargain.

Ditto on the Vortex mentioned.

For a MOA/MOA scope under a grand, I would look to the 6-24 Sightron SIII.
It is not illuminated though. 

FWIW-I shoot a lot in hunting situations and have rarely (if ever) found the need for a an illuminated reticle when hunting during legal hunting times.

I prefer MOA/MOA myself.
