After owning two Japanese-made Celestrons with small sweet spots, an 8x32 Ultima and an 8x32 Noble (which had the body of Regal LX and the head of a social worker), I drafted a zero tolerance policy for bins with small sweet spots.

Here's the "Minimum Sweet Spot Pledge":

I ________, the undersigned, will accept no bin with a sweet spot less than 70% of the field of view and/or with a steep fall off at the edges.

You are welcome to join my fellow "sweet spotters" and I by signing The Pledge. We're petitioning ISO to adopt the standard worldwide.
