Hello everyone .
Is there anyone that has an experience with the rare huet astropan 10x35 at night sky or even daytime? It has 8.8°(155@1000 meters) that In terms of field of view at 10x magnification, it ranks second after the Nikon WX. Of course, the object lens has a diameter of 35 and single layer coating and less than 50 Nikon Wx with multi coating, but it has a very clear view And I prefer it to Nikon 7x50 tropical.
Any experience and information about huet binoculars will appreciate .

I suspect being a vintage bino design, it must have very short eye relief!    hmm.gif

I have a similar Huet Mirapan 200 8x30 with an 11.4° FOV. For the night sky, I would much prefer a 12.5° 7x35 simply due to the difference in image brightness. The eye relief is relatively short but not terribly tight by any means. So the Mirapan 200 is a much better daytime binocular than nighttime. A very good example of 1950s optical craftsmanship. And these are both very rare binoculars and quite difficult to come by.
