10 vs 12 x

Response to not to worry much

I aimed my 12 x scope out the window and focused on an object.
Then I tried it again at 10x.

I was surprised by how little the difference was.
The field of view was a little bigger at 10x. But not dramatically so.
The magnification and ability to see fine detail was a little better at 12x. But not dramatically so.

Suprisingly, the ability to range find with the AO was NOT noticeably better at 12x.
It was only a teeny tiny little bit better.

I could see the details at 10x well enough to see when the range snapped into and out of focus.
The details I was looking at to range find were just a itty bitty bit bigger at 12x.
