I have 8x42 Pentax DCF WP binocs that I’m happy with for both day use and astronomy. (Also have 8x56 Celestron Ultima. But side by side comparison favors the Pentax.)
I’ve ordered a p-mount that should be here in a few days. I’m not very good at hand holding even smallish binocs.
I’d like to have more magnification for some objects (galaxies, globulars, and Jupiter’s moons, for instance). I am leaning towards the APM 16x70 ED magnesium series to supplement the 8x42. The $800 price tag is about my limit, but false color on Jupiter, e.g., is something I’d like to minimize, so I think I’ll appreciate the ED glass and don’t mind paying a little more for it.
I know 7x50 and 10x50 are really popular, but I don’t feel like either would be substantially different than my 8x42.
Is the APM 16x70 ED a good choice for my next binocs? (I am favoring it over the Oberwerk 15x70 for the extra eye relief, a little bigger sharp zone, and less color).
