  1. Hi John try and get a look through a set you will enjoy the very wide views,20x90,22x100 ,25x100, will all give you a sense of being out there in space, bins tend to handle l/p quite well, then you can sell on your choice of bins having had more chance to check out a suitable scope ,also some bins are threaded for filters, give FLO a ring and they will talk you through the choices,good luck its fun choosing, Regards Mike
