I recently acquired a couple of binoculars (8x42 DX ED and 20x80 SkyMaster Pro) and have really enjoyed the views (when the clouds allow). Of course, aperture fever has crept in, and I was wondering about something larger. In particular, I've looked at 25x100 glasses, like the Oberwerk 25x100 Deluxe. But, here's my question. Is there actually significant difference in the views between 20x80 and 25x100? I don't mean quality, but what can be seen. I know the FOV will be narrower with the 25x100's, but the magnification is only ~25% greater. Would that be enough to, say, see more DSO's or better resolve star clusters, etc? No need to bring in the really big guns, like the Oberwerk BT-100XL, into the discussion. I recognize that with interchanging eyepieces, you can really crank up the magnification, but such glasses are not in my budget for now. Plus, I already have an AT115EDT that can go to significantly higher mag. All said, I'm asking if the step from 20x80 to 25x100 is worth it?
Clear Skies and Safe Shelter to all.
