On 5/10-5/12, the 2019's first Yangtze River Delta Binculars Party features 3 RBBs on the same ground:
New Sky Rover 150ed binoculars on the fork, the behemoth DKD 8 inch carbon fiber binoscpes on the AZEQ 6, and the 130 apo EMS binoscopes on the Vinten Vision 30.
These includes achromat, ed and apo optics on different mountings. I have a day and a half night to compare the three, here are my breif conclusion.
The 130 apo bino has the best optics but long and heavy(F7, 20KG more) and a hassle to use with people of different ipd.
The DKD 8 has the best light grasp but achrmatic optics are useless in daytime, and the scope is a behemoth.
The SR 150 is the most balanced and a pleasure to use with its hassle free traditional ipd adjustment and solid, waterproff casing.
Under day light:
1.distinct 3D effect
2.lateral color very well controlled
3.accept the largest fs eyepieces without vigetting
4.bright vivid images
130 apo bino:
3.very long focus travel, means nearly all eps will focus and you can focus on very near objects
1.clean and crisp image
2.bright without clipping or fingernail
3.stars good but not perfect
1.brightest, resolves more stars in a globular
2.whitish image due to poor light baffling
3.dirty image due to poor color control
130 apo bino:
1. best stars, finest and most vivid
2. a bit dim image
The SR 150ed, imho, is much better opticallly than the Fujinon 150ed, and much more fun to play with. It's best for a person who wants a solid,balanced big binocular kit and not so obessed with best optics. For one who wants even better optics or more versatality, 150sd, or a DIY project may be their cure.
