Quote:I got it today (Saturday) and was shocked to see the packing which was not enough to protect the binocular from out of collimation.
Quote:If anyone is upset about missing this deal, here's another good deal on a 12x60... eBay Listing for NEW Oberwerk 12x60 - 4 available... This is listed as a bird watching binocular, but it is actually a listing for an Oberwerk FMC 12x60 for $44.51 USD with FREE shipping. Right now there are 4 available. NOT my listing, and I know nothing about the seller.

Quote:I did some outdoor testing ... again, using the 9x63 bins for comparison ... and the 12x60 bins have the stated 4.6º FOV with acceptable sharpness across 60% of the field ...

Quote:From the given data I calculated the "real" FOV (per Nikon's definition) to be 4.524º. I like to round down when it comes to optics so that expectations can be kept low and hence disappointments can be minimized. Then using Nikon's formula based on ISO 14132-1:2002, the apparent field of view comes to 50.72º.

Quote:At first this sounds like a good idea. Without thinking too much however I'll say that both stars would have to be at the same distance from earth so that the artificial line that connects them can be perpendicular to the line that connects their "combined" center to earth. Otherwise the geometry we use would not apply. It would be very difficult to locate two such stars. But I may be wrong.
