I think it's because most bino's are sold for daytime not nighttime viewing. 45 degree eyepieces are not what you want for daytime viewing. It's not so easy to point them at what you want with 45 degree eyepieces. Also they are more expensive. Now once you get up around 80MM, clearly these are for Astronomy and should come with 45 degrees. At least it should be an option on more binos. If your interested, check out the Miyauchi's. They all come with 45 degrees. Very expensive. They start a 20x77 for around $1000. I haven't seen any. Real luxury item if you ask me.
That's it;
BOB SAL
