centaursailor is on a distinguished road
Ordinary binoculars will show up lobster pots and other obstacles well even on a dark night.
I love sailing after dark and scan ahead every couple of minutes.
Navigation lights can be hard to pick out against shore clutter but will show up with careful scrutiny, double check their colors and sequences against the chart.
Safe sailing
