See the celestial sites with telescopes from Sears
Telescopes bring astronomy to life for young stargazers first learning about the universe and experienced hobbyists tracking their favorite comet. Our selection of telescopes includes affordable models from Barska and Coleman AstroWatch with decent-quality lenses suitable for getting started. Advanced astronomers will prefer the fully coated, high-performance optics of models from Home Locomotion, Carson Optical and Vixen Optical. Telescopes from iOptron feature computerized star locating. They use the time, date and GPS to determine your location. The information is used to direct you to the planet, star or comet you want to see. Top models contain a database of 40,000 celestial objects.
You might not get a better view of the stars with monoculars, but they're ideal for wildlife viewing in the backyard, woods or mountains. Most are very lightweight and compact for tucking into your pocket or pack on a hike. If you hunt, you'll find them useful for quickly identifying game animals from a distance. Tasco, Alpen Optics and Humvee produce inexpensive monoculars with enough power and clarity for the hobbyist. If you want crisper, brighter images, you can upgrade to high-performance monoculars from Leica, Barska or Zeiss. The best are sealed with O-rings to make them resistant to fogging and are rugged enough to handle significant impact.
Law enforcement and military officers will appreciate the high-performance night vision equipment we carry from ATN Corporation, Sellmark and Night Optics. Goggles, binoculars and gun scopes are available in a range of models to suit your purposes. If you want affordable night vision equipment for scouting your hunting territory or shooting varmints, Bushnell, Yukon and J&K Outdoor are the brands to consider. Sears also has tripods and sight mounts to help you make the most use of your night vision equipment.
Rangefinders are optical tools that give you accurate distances to objects. The Bushnell Tour V2 and Pinseeker and the Leupold GX-3 rangefinders are used on the golf course to determine the distance to water or the flag pin. Hunters use camouflage-covered rangefinders from Simmons and Nikon when taking aim at game. Many of the best models feature a powerful laser you point at the target to get the most accurate readings. Leica uses high-quality, fully coated optics in its series of general-purpose range finders. Most rangefinders are monoculars, so the image is flat. Binocular models are made by Barska, Zeiss and Bushnell in porro-prism and roof-prism designs that give you a 3-D view of the target.
