|Description:||I first purchased a Vixen 8-24 zoom.|
I wasn't pleased with the Vixen zoom mechanism, and the ergonomics were shoddy.
However, the William Optics zoom is a well thought out piece.
The blackened barrel, the faultless multicoatings, the smooth zoom mechanism, and the clever twist-up eyeshield, indicate intelligent design.
I've used it mostly in daylight, but it works acceptably; if not quite well, at night.
Don't use any telescope near a chimney flue, etc.
The heat waves can foul the view with any eyepiece.
All in all I'd say the William optics eyepiece is a work of art, period.
It's a keeper...
