Quote:+1 on the 10x50s, Phil. I personally gave up my 7x50s years ago. For astronomy, 10x really starts to work for me over 7x or even 8x. I, too, prefer a wider AFOV than what most 7x50s show and 10x really really goes deeper under most conditions and doesn't give up a lot of FOV to the 7x50 either.Good to see you drop by; haven't seen you around for a while!
