Overview of military telescope
Military telescope are products that meet the needs of the battlefield: sturdiness, shockproof, waterproof, and easy maintenance are the most basic requirements. At the same time, they must have the best possible optical quality to be a qualified product.
Everything has two sides. Under the condition of ensuring quality, military products must control the cost. After all, they are equipment purchased in large quantities. Under the condition of ensuring quality, certain compromises have been made in other aspects. For example, in order to ensure good waterproofness, general military telescopes use binocular independent focusing, so that the cost of waterproofing is greatly reduced, and maintenance is also convenient. But for focusing, the left eye and the right eye have to be operated twice independently. In daily use, it is definitely not convenient to use a telescope with a central adjustment method.
Furthermore, in order to ensure a sturdy structure, military telescopes basically use the Paul prism structure, which is bulkier and heavier than the more civilian roof prism structure telescopes. In terms of lens coating, eyepiece design, and color reproduction, military telescopes are not as good as top-level civilian telescopes.
