Visual use only for now... Just looking to optimize the views and wondering if I would expect any appreciable difference in one diagonal vs the other. Would knowing whether user was single stack vs double stack mode change the answer? ... I am only in SS mode for now.

Thanks in advance for any advice based on your experiences.

I wouldn’t think you could see the difference between the two diagonals for solar in SS or DS.

I see you have a binoviewer and when you DS and observe with binos you have the best possible view.

Binos are easy on the eyes, increase contrast and detail. Binos are a game changer
