If it is 100mm then why 80mm in description. Also the FOV would be around 3+ degree if the it is f<1.5 ....... Very complicated specification

As an incredibly wise man . . . ALSO HUMBLE . . . once said:

"good advertising doesn't have to be meaningful or accurate; it only has to be believed."

And people who chose to sleep through 7th through 12th grade Science will believe just about anything.

At least they recommended a tripod mount for such a powerful instrument.

'Prinz' was the brand-name that was used on binoculars sold by the Dixon's photographic chain. Never seen a good one.
