Tom, how are you liking the 10x50 WX? Have you posted any observing reports with it?
Coming soon. Tomorrow night a couple of seasoned observing buddies are coming over. Predicted balmy, clear... and dark! I have all the binos lined up for an informal shoot-out. The three Zeiss and the Nikon will be especially scrutinized. That's not apples-apples but meh, we just want to enjoy and compare. The ultra-wide perfectly corrected field of the new Nikon WX should steal the night... but those other two certainly aren't slackers!
>Zeiss 7x42 B TP** general purpose
>Nikon WX 10x50 wide field astro and boating binos
>Zeiss 20x60 I high-mag stabilized binos
And we'll also bracket those mid-sized hand-helds with the Vixen ultra-low power and the APM 100mm Binoscope.

>APM 100-90o ED APO astro binoscope
I should ask them to bring other 10x50s. That sure would make for a meaningful comparative critique of the WX. Tom
