                                        FUJINON BINOCULARS
     WHY FUJINON 7x50s?
    The only two binoculars rated
 as SUPERIOR by Practical
 Sailor magazine, were the
 Fujinon Polaris and the Zeiss
 7x50s (which cost about $500
 more). In fact Fujinon was rated
 best in dim light conditions.
 Thanks to a proprietary zirconi-
 um oxide, electron beam coating
 (EBC) process, they are able to
 transmit an incredible 95% of the
 light striking their objective lens.
 They are the brightest binocu-
 lars in the world in critical low-
 light dawn and dusk situations.
 Their housings are super-rugged
 lightweight aluminum alloy which
 are rubber coated. This makes
 the binoculars easier to hold,                                        POLARIS 7X50 BINOCULARS

        Many people say that buying image stabilizing (IS) bin-
     oculars ranks among the top 3 most important things they
     have ever bought for their boats. You will see buoys, radar
     contacts, and navigational hazards much farther away than
     with non-stabilized models.
        How much stabilization is needed? When binocular
     power increases above 8, hand tremor and platform motion
     begins to blur the image so that increasing magnification
     gives no better results. IS systems allow power to be
     increased without blurring. IS systems are described by
                                                                               NIKON STABILEYES 14X40
