It feels like crazy, but this combo is really nice! The view is very sharp and bright, extremely contrasty!
This combo gives slightly more than 8x which in terms yield 8 degrees true field of view! This field is huge, even when compared with binoculars! My Canon 10x30 IS gives *only* 6 degrees of true field!
Call me crazy, I indeed enjoy wide field viewing, I can't wait to use this combination under darker sky to scan around the summer milkyway. I expect faint fuzzies everywhere in the field of view!
Will I ever part with my Borg 45ED II? I doubt now. Maybe only a Borg 60ED which has only 25mm more focal length, that means, a very similar true field of view with added aperture!
