Telescopes and binoculars can reveal a natural world that was previously unknown to us. From the wonders of the universe to the wonders of your local forest, investing in pieces of technology like this can allow you to get closer to mother nature in all of her glory. At Sherwoods Photographic, we have gone all out to bring you the best viewing equipment to ensure that you get to behold the greatest sights on offer. It can literally be a life changing sight that brings home the often unfathomable place in which we live. Bird watching binoculars can reveal the hidden complexities of the world from a bird’s perspective. We have a wide array of instruments from some of the world’s best manufacturers including Vanguard, Celestron, Bushnell, Pentax and Minox. Each are adapted to the job at hand and will give you a high precision, true colour vision on the world in a waterproof design. These pieces of equipment are designed for rugged use and quick deployment. They should ideally perform well in many different light conditions, because you never know what you are going to face when stepping out into the wild.
Observing at night can reveal another world that was previously inaccessible. Night vision cameras have typically been very expensive, but because of the commercial sector adopting these capabilities, you can now use them to observe wildlife. We include products from manufacturers such as Bushnell, Cobra, Pulsar, Minox and Yukon so you have a good range to choose from. By using our site and reading everything we have to say about these products, you will hopefully have all the information you need to make the best decision for you.
At Sherwoods, we also offer astronomical telescopes for those who want to turn their equipment upwards. There are many sights to see above, not least one of the most obvious being the moon. With the right equipment you can make out craters on our closest neighbour. With more powerful equipment you can begin to uncover the secrets of the planets in our solar system including Mars, Venus, Jupiter and everybody’s favourite, Saturn. Being able to make out the rings of Saturn is a breathtaking experience, particularly when you realise that the image is live and that planet really is out there. You may also be able to see the many moons of Jupiter orbiting the huge gas giant, while perhaps also being able to make out the raging red spot.
Further afield there are many observable constellations that may have always been recognisable to you. Understanding that these points of light are all unique stars with their own unique properties is one of the joys of astronomy. Betelgeuse is a famous star in the constellation of Orion and is the eighth brightest star in the night sky. It has a distinctive reddish tint because it is a red supergiant. Betelgeuse is at a late stage of its lifespan and will explode in a type II supernova sometime during the next million years!
