I purchased another pair of Fernglass 08 binoculars off eBay the other day and they arrived this morning. I stumbled across them by chance just after they had been put on with a 'buy it now' of £40. maybe it was the black paint which put other potential purchasers off, I really don't know. But after a few hours work they looked a damned sight better than they did on eBay!
