I finally pulled together the cash for some swarovski big eyes and have a few questions.  The first is do they offer a 20x WA eyepiece?  If not will the 30X WA eyepice match the FOV of a 20x.  What is the assembly time (from order to ship)?  Who manufactures the brackets and how sturdy are they; who colminates them?  What is the interpuppilary distance range, and do I have to specify this at time of order.  Are the 65mm's available in HD glass?  Has anyone used them--opinions appreciated.  I'm stepping up from an old pair of bushnell spacemasters.

A check on SWFA's Riflescopes.com web site shows the following 20xeyepeice:

  http://www.swfa.com/pc-1418-45-swarovski-20x-eyepiece.aspx

 

The field of view of the 30x is somewhat smaller than the 20x - which is to be expected. The 45x would also exhibit an appropriately smaller field of view.

 

The SWFA "Big Eyes" spotter system can be viewed here:

and here:

Beyond that, your best bet is to simply call SWFA and talk to one of the salepeople.  They should be able to get you answers to your questions related to brackets, collimation, IP distance, etc.  Since two 65mm HD spotters (@ $1,630 each + the price of two eyepeices) would cost significantly more than the entire Big Eyes system ($3180) I am guessing that the Big Eyes are not made with the HD spotting scopes.  However, since you are upgrading from a Bushnell Spacemaster, I doubt you will be too disappointed by the lack of HD glass.
