Remarks:

Vixen advertises the SG 6.5×32 as “… advanced astro-binoculars…”, which seems a bit unusual, given the 6x magnification and 32mm objective lenses. But with its 9 degree field of view, stargazing is no problem of course. And thanks to the 6x magnification, daytime use is also possible despite the individual eyepiece focusing. The SG features an interesting “variable speed focusing” and a substantial focus travel beyond infinity.

Ratings:

Mini-Review:

Bright, color-neutral image; almost no CA; very good central and good off-axis sharpness; little distortion and therefore a slight globe effect on panning; quite decent stray-light performance. Field of view good but not outstanding.
