Hey Doug do you know if this cronus model is going to be compatible with athlons removable eye piece reticle?

I saw that they are going to be releasing eye piece reticles for their spotters and was curious if they are only going to work on their newest models ?

After buying Vanguard Endeavor HD 20-60x82 & Celestron Regal M2 20-60x80 spotters over the past several years, I've thought seriously about buying an Athlon Cronus 20-60x86 to find out for myself if doubling the price would result in sharper/better focused images. Still interested, but not sure whether it's worth the price of admission to find out...

Thanks for your opinion Ilya. I'm a slow learner - bought several budget-priced spotters since '86, the 1st being a Tasco World Class 25x60 rubber armored straight body scope, after reading a positive review in the NRA's American Rifleman. Still got that scope; it might've been a bit better optically speaking than an angled body Nikon I bought next from (IIRC) Champions Choice. Finally sold that scope and replaced it with a nicer Kowa 661. Those were all used in NRA hi power matches. Not sure why I bought the Vanguard - guess I figured since it had ED objective, it was going to be a lot better than the Kowa. Was on a roll, so next bought the Celestron...not really much of a step up from the Vanguard, but with the addition of their 27x LER eyepiece, it's better suited for HP shooting. Though neither of these two are exactly el cheapo scopes, they're not much better optically than the Kowa, nor as good as I'd really like to have.

I have not tried the Vanguard, but Regal is a good spotter, although I think the smaller model is comparatively better.

Still, Cronus is definitely a step up.
