Binoculars and scopes for aviation
Binoculars and scopes for aviation
This is an area where most of the rules of optics goes "out of the window."
We would normally say that for hand held use, a pair of Binoculars or a Spotting Scope should not be used above 8 or 10x magnification. However for Aircraft spotting, particularly looking at high flying aircraft, it is possible to aquire the knack of being able to hold steady a much higher magnification instrument. This is usually acheived by bracing the arms well or using an available wall or car to lean on.
When choosing a spotting scope it is essential to choose a straight version
rather than an angled version if it is being hand held at all.
Zoom Binoculars sound like a good idea but never buy ones with more than around 20x magnification as the quality will be poor. Never buy high magnification and zoom Binoculars from national newspaper ads as these are in our experience, poor build and optical quality (These people offer good returns policies but they rely on the fact that most people will just cut their losses and can't be bothered to send them back.) If it has a cheap price tag then no matter how it is described, it will be cheap and nasty!
