I know this is a topic that is brought up alot however my requirements are fairly specific and I feel my questions has not been answered on previous threads.
First, I travel a long way out to sea and boat at night around the Great Barrier reef area. My radar cannot pickup the reef so I want to be able to see the reef at night (Which is either sticking up above the water line or waves crash on it at high tide)
Since my boat has a windscreen I dont think I can use night vision
equipment that uses assisted IR lighting as it will reflect off the windscreen.
I would like to be able to see at least 300 metres in front of the boat under starlight.
Where I usually go with my boat I am in moderatley choppy conditions so I consider that a hands free monocular
would be the best idea as I cannot hang on and steer with one hand.
Price : I am willing to spend up to $2500 if necessary however would rather spend less if possible.
I know this seems like a lot to ask however has anyone got any ideas?
Thanks in advance.
