Interesting... I expected at least a nibble or two even if no one has any experience with these scopes.

To tell you the truth, I think it would have been better to motorize the AO in addition to (or instead of) the magnification ring because reaching to the front of the scope to focus is more inconvenient than adjusting magnification, IMHO.

Any input? Anyone messed with one of these scopes?

No experience with the scope. I do think it would be better if there were a Plan B for zooming if batteries go dead.

Regards,
Tom

^^^ Excellent point. I assumed it could be manually zoomed but it doesn't appear to be.
