SWarovskiHabicht AT 80 HD

Postby 622joe on Tue Dec 27, 2011 11:17 pm

Hello,
I have a Swarovski Habicht AT 80 HD and would like to know if newer lenses fit on it? It is 20x60 power and would like a fixed 30 wide
Angle or 25 x 50 wide angle. Also need other parts such as lens cover but what's listed on Optics Planet web site are for newer style.
Thanks for your help on this site.

Hi Joe

There are differences on the new vs old eyepieces (the new ones have a locking feature which is not going to function on the AT mount), but I do know folks that have used the new zoom eyepieces on the old AT and ST series with no problems. They will mount, anyway, though perhaps not as securely as with the new scopes. I have heard that some of the new fixed power eyepieces will have some of the field of view cute off when used in the AT. Before plunking down the big bucks, I would first visit with Swarovski on the specific eyepiece you want to use.
Thanks for posting with us
