    Gabby, can you refer to an article that discusses the topic of best exit pupil and type of object viewed? Or is this a subjective thing dependant on the viewers eyes?
    I suppose this goes to the question of max useable magnification as well. Is .5 the min usefull exit pupil. Lot of quesyions there....sorry.
