I was just playing with looking at stars reflected in this platter through my 15x70 binoculars, with only one eye. There was some unidirectional glare from Venus, but stars looked pinpoint. I was only hand-holding the binoculars, so the test isn't great. And it would have been better if the central hole was blacked out. This isn't a very demanding test, higher magnification would be much better, but it's a promising start.
