Hello, my name is Kirk and I am somewhat new to Eastmans forums. As I have only curiously pawed through the posts of others for the past few years, and this will be my first post. I primarily hunt elk and deer with a bow and a rifle in a variety of western states. Currently, I am trying to decide between a straight vs. an angled eyepiece in the Swarovski spotting scope line up, and all my previous scopes have had straight eyepieces. I have heard about some of some advantages and disadvantages of each, but I would like to know what others have found out for themselves and what work arounds they have employed while on a hunt to counter the disadvantages of each. Thanks in advance for your input.
