    Spotting scope and laser range finder

    How come no one has ever built a laser rangefinder and spotting scope all in the same unit???? I mean there starting to do it with rifle scopes. But i would lik to see something made but at a reasonable price.

    Wouldn't have to be. The Leica Geovid bino's are not big at all.

    Can they range non-reflective targets past 1200 meters?

    That would be the key. I've often thought of this, but I wonder if they could get an effective sized LRF in a spotting scope housing, which is significantly different in design than bino's. It is a good idea, perhaps just not enough demand to justify what would be a very expensive price tag

    I like the idea. I think it would be a hot item. However incorporating this in to a spotting scope would require the housing to be redesigned to accomidate all the extra goodies.
    Recognize what is in your sight, and that which is hidden from you will become plain to you.
