Excerpt: The ergonomics on these are just terrible. To get your eyes into the eyepieces you have to force your forehead against the focuser which will then not turn without digging into your forehead. So you have to pull your head back every time you want to focus. I have never used more uncomfortable compacts and I've owned many pairs over the years. While they have a wonderfully wide field of view the views are very dark compared to all my other compacts.
