The Acuter is certainly a smart-looking spotter. Focusing was very smooth to the touch and we didnt spend a lot of time re-adjusting it after changing magnifications because it stayed pretty sharp. Stars remained clear across a good 80% of the wide 2 degree field of view
The colourful double star Algieba was nicely split at 60x , and this was the only spotter to cleanly split Castor, despite it being a closer pair. Saturn was rewarding, with rings cutting across the disc, and Titan could be seen nearby. All in all we found this spotter did a good job when turned to the heavens.BBC Sky At Night MagazineSpecification WaterproofMulti Coated OpticsSoft Padded Case Straight Magnification Zoom x20-x60Object Lens Diameter 80mm Focal Length 480mm Actual Field of View 2°-1°
