Been looking for a pair of astronomical binoculars with enough eye relief so I did not have to shove my eyes into the eyepieces. Since I have to wear glasses for astigmatism this is a big
concern. After much research, I choose the Oberwerk 11 x 70 lw. It has a listed eye relief of 23mm
It took a while to find a suitable pair of binoculars, and I realize that price is not always a main factor. Many more expensive astronomical binoculars
have a less than desirable eye relief. I find this puzzling. For example, the standard Skymaster 20 x 80 binoculars has an eye relief of 18mm, but the Skymaster Pro eye relief is 15.5.
Why is this so? I would be curious what others on this forum think about this
Meanwhile, I love the Oberwerk 11x70 lw, it seems to be quality made for something so relatively inexpensive.
