SV406P VS SA401

SV406P VS SA401

SV406P VS SA401

It is a sunny day, can't waste such good weather. so we decide to do a comprehensive comparison of SV406P and SA401 APO many fans are concerned.
1. The sun viewing with SA401- interesting application
We cut a Badder film (density: 5.0) 100×100mm for solar observation, we DIYed a cap to suit the SA401 outer tube, and we use the flocking material to prevent stray light. (Don't observe the sun with the scope directly!!!)

3. Image comparison 


What I can say is that they are both the high quality  spotting scope. Without hesitation, SA401 is more excellent thanks to its APO and double ED glasses. In generall, SV406 is suitable for the medium and beginner user, and SA401 are more inclined to which has some experience in using a spotting scope. 

Thanks for your watch.
