Mount question??????

Yet another this vs that question.

Posted By jeff glancy

Long story short: have been bitten by the bino bug. There is more data out there then I know what to do with. Would like opinions on the following:
Is the Denk 1 with special coatings worth the extra dough (~$150 - $175) over the Denk 1 Standard. Seeing how the Denk 1 with special coatings which puts you pretty much into the same financial ballpark as the Denk 2. Which of these is the biggest bang for the buck, or is it the Denk 1 standard that is the biggest bang for the buck? Finally how does the Siebert Black Knight stack up againgt the Denk?? Sorry for the stream of consciousness post, butI am soooo confused. This is tougher than deciding on a scope.

Pushing my luck??

Mewlon 250 and Tec 140 in tandem on a Mach1?? Anyone have a feel as to how far the Mach1 can be pushed? Got called for my credit card number for the Mach1 so the moment must be soon, or should I be kicking myself foe not having sprung for a 900?

the ad on A-Mart today under refractors? I think it was 4 or 5 scopes ranging from 206 down to a 130. All yours for $110k. Seller didn't want to split them up. The ad disappeared so fast I'm wondering about what I've been smoking.

In a very short time, it has made me realize that political inclinations are things best kept to ourselves.
