I use an 8 x 56 Kahles Super Helia scope from the 1970's, and was maybe looking to update in the near future. I have been more than happy with the scope for over 15 years, and will probably get another Kahles when the time comes. I was looking on their web-site at all the pretty things when I came across this story. Pretty Impressive! Makes you wonder why more people dont use their gear?
