Too Much Of A Good Thing

An objective lens on binoculars is in charge of brightness and resolution. Obviously if you have bigger binoculars you have bigger lenses. Giant binoculars can be great for low-level light conditions. This is ‘cause they can suck up most of the light available. However, if it is a bright day these giant specs could offer you too much light, making it too harsh on the eyes. In this situation a smaller pair might work better. If you are shopping for binoculars in a store the best thing you can do is try ‘em out. Maybe even aim them towards the window for a quick lighting test.
