Marine binoculars

Postby Swedish Chef on Mon Sep 14, 2009 10:05 am


I need new binoculars to use on my sailing yacht.

As always, price is an issue but obviously good performance is a necessity. Preferred pricerange is well below $200.

The binoculars should be waterproof and if it has autofocus and a compass that's great.

Any advice?

Thanks in advance

I would try the Tasco OS541 in that price range.
