Binoculars that the Seafarers can’t help but love

Some people feel more at home on the water than they do in their own backyard. The sound of the waves breaking and the smell of the ocean air beckon to their aquatic nature, and when that call comes, they answer it. But just as essential as it is to have a good fishing pole or a cooler full of snacks, any day spent on the open sea just isn’t complete without a great pair of binoculars.

While one could argue the point that any pair of binoculars would work just as well on surf as they do on turf, just ask anyone that has accidentally dropped a pair into the ocean. The truth is that regular binoculars are meant for those who haven’t quite developed their sea legs yet, and being on the water presents a set of challenges that require a special tool for the job.

Best Binoculars for Astronomy & Stargazing

Star gazing is a favorite pastime of many. The joy of setting up underneath the heavens on a clear night while attempting to gain a better view of the moon or a favorite constellation is a relaxing way to spend a warm summer evening. Scientists, astronomy buffs, and the hobbyist alike can all attest to the serene calm instilled by marveling at the great dark abyss, brimming with its astronomical awesomeness.

In order to fully appreciate all the celestial delights that the night sky has to offer, one would need a tool built specifically for such an activity.

The Fujinon Techno Stabi Binoculars

Anyone who spends a fair amount of time outdoors realizes the importance of owning a great set of binoculars, especially when it comes to enjoying breathtaking sights from afar. But run-of-the-mill models are hampered by their shortcomings. Units are sometimes too cumbersome and bulky to hold for more than a few seconds at a time before needing to be placed on a tripod or other device. Many are built from inferior materials or are susceptible to water damage. Worst of all, devices of old can’t accurately reflect images that were moving and oftentimes won’t function properly in shaky situations, regardless of the size of the disturbance.

Fujinon recognized the need for a pair of binoculars that would provide a level of optical clarity befitting of those who enjoy the great outdoors, while also employing the use of advancements in ergonomics and lens technology to provide a viewing experience that is far superior to other models on the market.  The Techno Stabi Series binoculars addresses all the needs of outdoorsmen and combines clarity, comfort, and durability into a product that’s light years ahead of its competitors.

Binoculars VS Monoculars : Which is Better?

Prefer a monocular? No problem, just remove a roll 😉

Which is Better?

We frequently get asked this question by our customers when they are trying to decide between purchasing a binocular and a monocular.

However, there simply isn’t a one size fits all answer to this question as it will really depend on how you are intending to use it and what your personal preference is.

So, what are the key differences between a Binocular and a Monocular?

The most obvious difference between a binocular and a monocular is the way they look and the way they are being used. A binocular typically looks like what you’ll get after combining 2 pieces of monoculars together.

For a monocular, it has only one lens that you can hold up to one eye (you can choose to use your left or right eye based on your personal preference), while a binocular comes with 2 lens which you can hold up to both eyes.

“A monocular is simply half a binocular.” ~ Mr Will ~

When should I opt for a binocular or monocular?

Protecting Your Business with Anti-Splashing Tapes (for Ship and Industrial Plants Owners!!)

Piper Disaster

The piping infrastructures of industrial plants and marine vessels are necessary to transport important chemicals needed to ensure that machinery operates effectively, but these chemicals can also pose serious danger if pipes rupture or leak.  Oils, acids, and steam can cause damage to surrounding equipment, resulting in loss of revenue and productivity due to downtime.  More importantly, crew members have suffered from injuries, which in some cases have proven to be fatal.

Industry officials recognized the need for facilities to implement measures in order to reduce and eliminate safety concerns before they even arise.  The International Convention for the Safety of Life at Sea (SOLAS), which is responsible for ensuring the health and well-being of those individuals that work on marine vessels, has decreed an ordinance known as Chapter Amendment 2-2 , requiring that ships install some measure of protection to keep oils and other dangerously flammable materials from leaking out of pipes.
