Binoculars can be useful in situations ranging from tourism to hunting and survival. A daylight tourist can use binoculars to get a bit of a closer look at the sites. A bird watcher or hunter will prefer binoculars that are still effective in lower lighting such as dusk or dawn, when the animals they seek are more likely to be active. Stargazers should look for the most effective binoculars available before considering upgrading to astronomical binoculars or telescope. When it comes to survival, binoculars can aid in hunting or spotting potential rescue.
