Beware false prophets and false gods.

Based on the Kowa BD II 6.5x32 XD I am reviewing right now, I agree with you Andy. I like Terras but the Kowa is a step up in all respects.

A 42x7 would be ludicrous and offering it as part of the discussion is a round-about way of saying taking the twilight factor as an infallible guide is ludicrous too.

Perhaps twilight factor was a better indicator back when lens coatings were not so good. And as you hint at, the calculation doesn't take into account AK prisms or HT glass. Some folks (including me)...

I use both of these binos frequently and although Trinovid 8x32 HD has a closer focus than the MeoStar in all other respects, in my opinion, the Meopta is superior.

Eye position is very important if you want to avoid CA. Having your eyes off the optical axis is likely to cause CA to appear even in the centre field. If you find CA appearing, make a few small...
