How to Chose The Best Binoculars For You

May 22, 2008
Binoculars are better for viewing general objects than telescopes because they are basically two telescopes smacked together which allow for greater depth perception.

Binoculars have been around since the 1600's century after telescopes have been invented. People use to connect two telescopes together and in able to see with both eyes.

During the 1800's a porro prism binoculars were created that enabled greater depth perception and also spaced the eye pieces wider apart. These binoculars were more powerful than the standard ones before then.

The cheapest binoculars are porro prisms that create detailed images and good color views. These are big and wide and sometimes need to be re adjusted to work properly.

A more costly pair of prism binoculars are roof prism binocular. These binoculars are lighter and smaller but lose some light. An advantage to them is that they usually never have to be re-adjusted. These binoculars weigh much less. Many roof prism binoculars have coated lenses.

Coated Lenses help make a bright image by reducing the amount of light that reflects. With out this, the binoculars will create a hazy picture.

Most Binoculars are focused by moving a round wheel that focuses both eye pieces at once. More complicated binoculars require independent focus which requires each eye piece to be focused separately.

More expensive binoculars have image stabilization which dampen sudden movement. This means that binoculars with high magnification can be hand held when normally they couldn't. This feature is very expensive.

Coin-op binoculars can be found at many tourist attractions. These are always on a tripod or bipod.

Military Binoculars are at a magnification 7x. Military binoculars are tougher than other binoculars and they also use independent focusing because it is more sturdy . Most military binoculars also have special features that help it work while wet. Boating binoculars are meant to be easier on the eyes so you don't get sea sick.

Astronomy Binoculars help you to view far away elements in the sky from far away. There are a lot of different planets like Pluto that can be seen with binoculars. It is nice to look with a lower powered binoculars because they have larger field of view.

I hope that you will come to see how great looking at the stars can be with binoculars. No matter what kind of binoculars you chose to buy, the most important thing out there is that you enjoy what you are using them for. You can still have fun with a $100 pair of binoculars if you enjoy looking at the stars with your kids. Teaching your kid's about the big dipper is something you will never forget.
