[Hello Roger,

I just ordered a Kwik View Max from Mike, excellent service btw.
While I wait for it to come, could you enlighten me on how to set it up ?
Do I have to adjust it everytime I change the zoom level ??

Cheers,
Jorge]


Very easy and fast. Slide it in to the slot for a flash attachment. Put the camera on a tripod and use your lcd screen and focus on a sign or something about the distance and zoom you think will be close to normal for your shots. Adjust the sight using the two knobs and you are ready to go. I haven't changed mine when I change the zoon level and I am still getting the birds in the frame.

I hope all works as well for you as it has for me.

Thanks for letting us know about the new larger sight.

Jerry, I hope you have as much luck with it as I have. I find it much faster to get the animal or bird in the frame.

Good Luck

roger

Many Thanks Roger! It certainly makes for an interesting look along with the TCON17.
After a quick look around I see the scope sels for around 14 dollars at most sports goods stores and the rest of the fittings are easy enough to come by. Guess I might give a try and put one together. Great Idea for any bird watcher who likes a record of finds. Good shooting all!

Roger, just received the new Max Kwik Aim. What an improvement over the smaller one. So much easier to get on target, and love being able to adust intensity of the red dot, as well as being able to realign.

Thanks again for your help.

Jerry
