I think part of what makes certain binoculars useful for nighttime is the larger exit pupil. That is the ratio between power and objective lens size. At night our pupils get larger to take in more light. Best to use all of your sight.

Larger lenses on the opposite end of where our eyes go, with lower magnification, yield a larger exit pupil.

Anyone else have refined insight on this?

My late father was an ardent photographer; if he were around today, he'd be "over the moon" at the digital cameras and color printers we have now.
I haven't shot of film in years, but I find like digital music, I miss the process of analog. The whole process of film was quite involved. Rolling your own canisters, the whole darkroom experience from developing to enlargements, etc. Digital is wonderful, but it loses some of the magic.

Not too dissimilar from digital music. I do miss fall evenings where I'd open the windows to let the cool breeze in, light some candles, and put on a vinyl album of Stan Getz or Dave Brubeck.

There's something about being part of the process. There's nothing terribly romantic about switching on the thermostat, but a nice fire in a fireplace is heavenly.

I gave my dad a digital camera and he didn't like it. He tried I'll give him that. He just preferred film. The man wrote programs for converting old factory machinery into computer driven but refused to have a home computer. He just didn't like digital.

He did eventually use a DVD player to watch certain movies when he wanted to see them and not when Turner Classic Movies got around to it.

You've got to be comfortable with what you're doing if you're going to fully enjoy it. Concentrate on nature photography and similar; you seem pretty good at it.

it just relaxes me and if i need to see i can always just turn on my flashlight. omg i love this time of year. its not hot its dark i can control what i see
Love dark and dim flashlight occasionally. SP10 Pro is just right but I have dimmer moonlights if I want. Sad thing is that light pollution is worse than acceptable around. Sidewalk lights shine sideways (what a misunderstood mission), straight into my window.
