Paper Abstract

A binocular extends the range of human vision. Binoculars enable the user to see objects at greater distances or, alternatively, to see greater detail in distant objects. In failing light, binocul are used to detect objects that the naked eye cannot detect. Binoculars also extend the range of stereo vision of the user; this application is primarily of interest in military fire control.
