Binoculars, night vision & image stabilized binoculars
Good navy binoculars or monoculars on board must be able to withstand a lot: Moisture, shocks, temperature fluctuations and other stresses on optics and mechanics. A marine glass should fit well in the hand, have excellent optics in poor visibility conditions and preferably be equipped with an integrated bearing compass. Compass binoculars meet the highest requirements. For example, the Compass Ocean 7 x 50 is designed for the toughest conditions: filled with nitrogen, perfectly sealed, rubber armoured and the bearing compass is illuminated. Binoculars from Compass have proven themselves in practice for many years and offer strong performance at an affordable price. Steiner is another top brand known for the quality of its all-weather binoculars. Image-stabilizing binoculars from Canon remain sharp and shake-free at the touch of a button. Minox binoculars have become even more functional and innovative: digital compass, integrated barometer and stopwatch included. Night vision devices from Bushnell, for example, have become very affordable and can contribute to the safety of approaches and approaches at night thanks to their residual light amplification.
