Try a spotting scope - a small telescope designed to be used by day or an observation binocular.

For the basics on higher power observation instruments, both binoculars and spotting scopes (small telescopes designed to be used by day), for horizon watching, spotting ships, distant wildlife and some astronomy, see my article at High Power Observation For Home Or Office This contains recommendations in various price ranges,
