Power & Motor Yacht - - THE GEAR - B.P.

The great thing about the new HX 15 x 56 binoc­u­lars from Steiner is the clar­ity they of­fer at great dis­tances. By com­par­i­son, glasses with the 7 x 50 con­fig­u­ra­tion (more typ­i­cal for the ma­rine realm) have con­sid­er­ably more mag­ni­fi­ca­tion and larger ob­jec­tive lenses for bet­ter light-gath­er­ing at dusk or af­ter dark. Be­cause of this ex­tra fire­power the Stein­ers are heavy, how­ever; I had to sta­bi­lize them by rest­ing my el­bows on my knees while fo­cus­ing.—
