I have however gone the other way. I like wide angle binocular views as using both eyes helps resolve smaller details and avoids eye strain. Having used an old 66mm Astro scope, running at 30x, I have “upgraded” to some 70mm 45degree APM astro binoculars. Certainly not small and compact, but wonderful wide and immersive views. For closeup I use papilio binoculars, crazy closeup views. Great that there are lots of different options for people to choose.
