Subject: Re: [Tweeters] 8X or 10X
one other consideration can be how steady your hands are. for most people
there's no issue. but any wiggle in one's hands is more pronounced at 10x
than at 8x. if one's hands are not steady this can be a problem. (I have
a friend in VA who now can only use a scope for this reason.)
