Quote:the review recommends the 10.5x model for Astronomy, though the 10.5x was not reviewed. How does the reviewer KNOW the 10.5x performs as nicely as the 8.5?
Quote:He said the 10.5x has a higher resolving power than the 8.5x, and would show a darker sky background and fainter objects. These are just pure facts that follow from the specs.
