Which is better, a binocular or spotting scopes?
Both eyes are used to look through a binocular while only one eye is used to look through a spotting scope. Since both eyes are used with a binocular, there is a better three dimensional image since 40% more detail is being delivered to the brain. A spotting scope has more magnification so objects that are far away will appear closer than through a binocular. However, a binocular is easier to handle and is more portable
