Rule #5: Practice how to locate an item with your binoculars
You may be seeing a bird or a deer clearly at the horizon, and as soon as you get your binoculars up to get a better view, the object is nowhere to be found. It can be very difficult to find objects with your binoculars in the beginning, however, as you get used to them, you will be able to get even a tiny bird into your field of view instantly.
Rule #6: Don’t invade someone else’s privacy
Not everyone uses binoculars to look at birds and other animals; some people may also spy on their neighbours or stalk people using binoculars, which is, of course, very unethical. Therefore, if you do have a pair of binoculars, be considerate of the people around you and don’t invade their privacy.
Rule #7: Learn the lingo
Well, now that you have decided to buy yourself a pair of binoculars, you should know a thing or two about the lingo. There are two main parameters that you need to know to identify any pair of binoculars. You may have noticed that many binoculars have numbers like 6×20, 8×50 written on them, what do they mean? The fist numbers represent the magnification power of the binoculars, while the second one shows the size of the objective lens. For instance, a pair of binoculars with specification marked as 8×30 will have eight times optical zoom, and a 30 mm objective lens.
Rule #8: Use the carry case to travel with your binoculars
Binoculars can be delicate, especially the ones with large lenses and prisms. Even though some of them have shockproof bodies, they can get uncalibrated and lose focus when they are handled carelessly. With almost every decent pair of binoculars, you will get a travelling case. These cases are designed to absorb even large shock and keep your optic safe from any damage. Therefore, whenever you are travelling with your binoculars, make sure to use your travelling case.
So, here were some rules that can help your binoculars last for a long time. I hope that you found this post helpful and informative.
