hi jeff - the bias is because those against it don't understand optics

Response to Appreciate that but I'm really interested in why there there is a bias...

all other factors being equal, a zoom scope (variable power) can not be equal to a fixed power scope (ask any photographer or astronomer) because the variable eyepiece has many more elements, therefore many more surfaces, and will introduce more abberations/distortion/light loss, yadda yadda than a fixed.

any other arguements are pure imagination

a cheap fixed is better than a cheap zoom

a precision fixed is better than a precision zoom

stay well,
