Since the objective lens in 54mm, would the stars,etc be as bright as in my 7x50mm binoculars? If so, then the constellations in increased brightness would be amazing. Recently the ISS passed over head and was very bright naked eye but through my 7x50's it was amazingly bright.
The 2x54's would be ultra portable and extremely useful at a very dark site. Super vision.
Can't wait to read some reviews from dark sites.
No, the stars will not be as bright as in 7x50. It will correspond to a 2x14 prism binocular system.
But the relative brightness will be the same, yes probably even better because of higher light transmission due to less glass surfaces.
A 2x galilean will feel pretty much like looking with naked eyes but the stars shining 4 times brighter.
