Joanie, I remember some time back reading an article that you had tested these? I know they are discontinued but, still available. How are these optically, is the whole fov usable, center field sharpness? I tried e-mailing you but, was told you were no longer there! Read your blogs and congrads, Bryce.

Hi Bryce

I am still going to be doing some blogs and forum posts, as always, so feel free to post, anytime. Been awhile on the Montanas - they are optically quite good, but, as I recall, a bitt heavy at 31 ox. Also, Meade is a bit puny on the warranty - only one year. That's not very competitive, to say the least. For the same money, you can get something just as good with a full lifetime warranty with a Vortex, Bushnell, and so on

I bought the Meade Montana 7x42 a couple of months ago on closeout for $99 and consider them a great bargain, although they are a little heavier than some at 31 oz. FOV is 420 ft.

Wow! Now that is one of the best buys I have heard about in some time. The Montana was always considered Nikon Monarch class and better. Good for you!
