Well, apparently I have to pick my words very carefully to keep from insulting you, Echolight. Perhaps if I word that sentence "Since (not if) it's the same bino in both dim and brighter pics, we know the dimming is still there even if it's more difficult to see under brighter conditions." you'll accept that as not being an insult? I never intended your taking the wording as meaning you're deliberately switching binos to try to fool us. I'm just trying to make sense of photos that appear contradictory at first look. It's hard to put words together perfectly when trying to express abstract thoughts rather than a visual representation.
The photos, and my initial statement, were just to show something that seemed out of the ordinary. Something that I found interesting and thought I would share. And they are what is seen. Now, apparently by anyone who cares to see. And could even give the impression to some that the binoculars contain Bak-4 prisms, which I never fully believed or intended to imply.
When what I was trying to share was challenged several times as merely my own delusion, and then finally qualified with an “if”, well....
Sometimes you look and don’t see. And just because you can’t see it doesn’t mean it’s not there.
Sometimes things that you do see aren’t really there
