    Cons: Low light transmission. Significant internal reflections. Eyepiece cover is very loose.

    Pros: Sharpness is decent - both on axis and towards the edge. Minimal astigmatism and coma. Lightweight (570g). Small physical size (15.2cm x 12.1cm x 4.9cm). Great build quality - housing, central focuser, eyecups, and diopter focuser all excellent.

    Summary: Average FOV (7.2). Moderate chromatic aberration (to be expected). Despite the cons, these make a good inexpensive pair for day/travel use - lightweight, small, well built, and good sharpness.
