These are the voyages of the Elcan Riflescope. It’s continuing mission, to provide ultimate shooting accuracy with quality digital image recording. Captain’s log, star date 2010. We find ourselves in the Delta Quadrant facing down the Klingtrons, the alien of Rigel Prime. They have captured our science officer, Mr. Sprock, and I will not leave him to die at their hands.

Zeiss Rifle Scopes

Zeiss Victory Riflescope sat down and loaded up his Facespace page. He had just come back from a whitetail hunt and he had pictures to load on his page to share with his friends. The whitetail image was so clear, his Lotu Tec lens coating with fully T* multicoating on all air-to glass surfaces provided superior light transmission and optimum contrast in the twilight hunt. The pictures showed his large field of view. He was full of precision adjustments and…

Riflescope Basics

The middle of the road (3-9×40 or thereabouts) scopes get some attention from hunters, but that is largely it. So what is a tweener scope?  Honestly, I…

Nikon Rifle Scopes

Nikon Rifle Scopes

The Nikon Riflescopes were arrayed on the table before Homes like the pieces of the puzzle that they were. Homes turned his sharp eye over them, and I could tell that my master was deducing much more than their precision opticals and rugged construction. When he looked at the Nikon Monarch, I knew that he could see that the Extra Low Dispersion glass would have given unmatched clarity and resolution.  My master, Homes, was Cantebury’s premier detective. “Homes,” the police…
