Hello Dave,

I have a pair of Vixen SG 2.1 x 42 Widefield binoculars. They get a mention in my From the President column in the June Journal at:


Personally, I think they are great for widefield (whole constellation) views from dark sites. They come into their own when you look at the milky way towards the galactic centre. You need to get used to using them, but I am quite taken with them. However, they are no substitute for “conventional” binos.

I haven’t tried other makes.

Hope this helps,
