The ATX/BTX system really covers all the bases for hunters at the top of the optics market.

Awesome review. I’ve been wondering about the mag extender and I think I’m sold.

It works pretty well. Just remember the exit pupil shrinks, so there is some loss of brightness.

The image stays impressively sharp, though.

Nice review. I've just bought a 95mm STX and love it! I'm saving money now to buy the BTX eyepiece to make this setup complete.

I recently got the BTX and find it amazing. I find myself wanting to pull it out and use it exclusively. But its not practical to take when I'm backpack hunting. But summer scouting from the truck is fantastic. There are times when it is not very useful. Like when the heat waves are waving in the middle of the day but then again nothing is good at that time of the day except less power and magnification. I didn't get it because I needed it. I got it because I wanted it and I'm glad I got it. Its pretty sweet and using two eyes is much less strain. I also got the 1.7 magnifier and extender and as stated above it certainly gets darker on higher power but everything gets darker on higher power. It will be very useful when counting antler points several miles away. Fatrascal.

I made the mistake of looking through a swaro spotting scope. Now I'm trying to sell some of my not used gear and rifles to buy one. Haha itll be worth it.
