With the various conversations regarding comparative aspects of optics I am seeking a way of photographing what a user would see through each of several scopes. First off, if someone knows of a test that has already been done, please respond- I have no desire to reinvent something already done. I have made tubing to place the camera lens at the eye relief point of the scope and block out light coming to the camera other than through the scope. But there are a few problems. One is that even on manual mode nature of the camera distorts the results in both clarity and brightness. Thoughts??

Checking the link to the Outdoor Life test has reaffirmed my decision years ago to cancel my subscription. The "objective" portion of the test was skewed heavily by other factors. given Outdoor Life's resources I would expect they could do a much better job of providing an objective means of testing the optics.

Hello Milan, I just watched your video on disassembling/reassembling the CZ 550. I have spent days looking for something like this. I now have no reservations taking apart my rifle. I like to do this with all my guns so I understand them "inside and out". Thank you very much for the information. It is greatly appreciated.
