I know Zeiss makes eyepieces that have reticles for their scopes. I know that the Kowa 821 is probably one of the most popular spotters used in the shooting community. Will any of the optics outfits modify one of the Kowa eyepieces to accommdoate a reticle?

    I'd sure like to know who does this mod. When I tried to explain it to the Kowa reps at SHOT, they simply could not comprehend the concept. I've got a Pentax that will take any astro type eyepiece, I'd love to get a reticle in it.

    Or any others, for that matter.

    Just happened on this thread and Damn! that's a good idea. I'd definitely put up some cash for that...

    He printed a reticle on a bunch of small pieces of plastic I think in .001 spacing increments and then compared it with a mil-dot target at like 50 yards. Got one that was just about dead nuts on. The bad thing was the plastic really degraded the image quality.
