Commented on other threads, but this one is still a "hot" thread, so I'll
throw in my 1/2 cent opinion.
Ordered the 2x54's based on this thread, and got them a few days ago.
I think it's a great product, but I am very nearsighted, and cannot achieve
focus with my glasses off. Chatted online with Orion, and they were very
helpful, but the bottom line was that I needed to wear my glasses.
My quick test with my glasses was that I got a 27 degree FOV vs 36 degree
spec. This is explained by the optical design, which you can view online
at the Orion website.
Still like the product, and intend to keep it. I can see stars that I could not
otherwise see "naked-eye", i.e. with my distance prescription. Pretty sure
this isn't a matter of "Night Myopia" as I sprung for the Optego flippers
cited in another thread, and my distance glasses are just fine.
It's a keeper, to the extent that I'm considering getting contact lenses
to be able to use it better, and a few other reasons.
