With 3D effect one actually feels that he is actually in the Image, However it may...

    SLC, Monarch HG, Conquest or Trinovid ?

    Hmm Okk. For me looking at Moon, Venus etc. was fine but watching the tiny lil stars with 10x42 is not possible for me due to tremendous shaking, Not enjoyable for me.

    Yes true, For 3-4 days i kept watching through SLC in low light and HG and kept on finding a reason to go for SLC instead of HG but to be honest as several members mentioned there is no difference in Image quality.
