    Need new binos that have long eye relief for use with glasses. Anyone have the same problem? What brand binos did you find that have long eye relief? Looking for 10X or 12X.

    Here's a great source for binoculars & telscopes...

    http://www.telescope.com/control/main/

    Keep in mind that 10X is at the upper end of hand holdable for binoculars and spotting scopes...

    Also, while there are formulas to determine things like f-ratio, magnification, and exit pupil, eye-relief is a function of the lens design, so you've got to dig into the details to see which models offer a longer eye relief. At any rate, Oion will certainly offer something to suit you! :supergrin:

    My past dealings with Orion earned them 5/5 stars! :thumbsup:
