I found the Maven to have strong strong strong glare.... it really bothered me. For $300 bucks more, get a Meostar on Sale or the MHG 8x30 on sale too.... no glare, better bin.

The Swaro ATS with the 25-50 Eyepiece is remarkable.... If one compares the 20-60 Eyepiece, the Swaro doesn't do as well. Now, if you are digiscoping, you will never go beyond 20-25 anyhow, so don't...
