[Tweeters] Scope recommendations?

I have used the Swarovski ATX 95mm for the past few years.

I am extremely happy with it, despite the weight (with stable tripod and oil-filled gimbal set-up it’s a load).
I’ve been salivating over the 115 mm objective, but will need to hold off for a bit.

I use the 95 mm a lot for digiscoping, with pretty good success.
The 115 would add about 27 Oz. in weight (that’s about the same as the eyepiece unit alone).
I say, if you can afford it, go for it.

After I switched from the KOWA scope I had been using for more than 21 years to the Swarovski, I realized I switched from bird watching to looking at the barbules on feathers…. It still is an amazing experience.

Im looking for a new scope. Is anyone running the Swarovski ATX series? Specifically the 105 which must weight a ton. But light is not light.

Thoughts from the group?
