Figure 20 - Both long range zoom systems being tested on the same scene

The binocular version of the zoom extender did not have the ultra crisp clarity of the gun sight system, but this is to be expected since it can see a scene at 4x more magnification. When you look further, you will always be trading light and clarity for distance, but with a 10 megapixel camera, there is still a lot more detail captured than you can see with your naked eyes. Figure 20 shows both of the long range zoom cameras being tested on the same winter scene. Even with the snow falling and lack of bright sunlight, the images captured were very high in detail.



This simple project proves that you don't have to spend thousands of dollars on a high end camera and lens to spy on distant scenes. The quality of the images captured with the $50 pocket digital camera adapted to the $100 binoculars are very good, and the ability to see distant scenes with this setup rivals what can be done with a $5,000 telephoto lens.
