Commercial Sightseeing Binoculars for Tourists – Our Offer

BrightStar non coin operated tourist binocular

BrightStar scopes are fully weatherproof and robustly constructed to resist tampering. The water and dust protection class of the scope component is IP66. All our products are machined from rust resistant materials – mostly aluminium and stainless steel, offering the best weight to strength ratio. Even heavy duty devices are relatively light (50-70kg) and can be shipped worldwide by air in two boxes. The base has 8 pcs 15mm diameter holes placed equally on 290mm circle.

Each base has 8 x 15mm holes evenly spaced around a 290mm circle. For securing to the ground 4 – 8 anchor bolts or chemical anchorage systems (e.g. 12x120mm) can be used.

We manufacture three types of a tower viewers :

  1. Non Coin Operated Binoculars – Supplied without the central coin box or card terminal. Observation time is not limited – perhaps the best choice if providing a free additional service for your customers.
  2. Coin Operated Binoculars – Incorporating a central coin box and slot, which is secure, but accessible for emptying or renewing the battery, and limiting the viewer to a set time per payment.
  3. Binoculars with terminal card payment – Our latest addition. Customers can pay by card or phone, as in any shop. They just present their card or mobile phone (NFC equipped) close and start enjoying the view.

In each category you will find sightseeing scopes for one eye (monocular) and for two eyes (binocular). Telescopes with single eyepiece offer a greater magnification, so they will be better for observing ships at the seaside or details like the top of distant mountain or buildings. The two eyepiece binocular offer lower magnification, but a wider field of view and better depth feeling. In general, the BINO version is a better product for admiring the landscape.

In addition we manufacture:

  • SOLAR POWER SYSTEM allows our coin operated binoculars with mechanical coin injector* to work without charging – typically for 7 months in a central European climate from April to October). The solar panel also reduces the charging intervals in winter.
  • STAND FOR CHILDREN – safe, 180° or 360° round, without any sharp corners.

* Mechanical coin injector does not consume electric energy.

Optical devices – some science

coin-operated sightseeing scope, tower viewer, terminal card payment binoculars

Panoramic binocular for tourist is an optical telescope using high quality optic lenses to focus light.

This allows people to see details of objects at a great distance. The optical binocular allows us to increase the focal parameter at the expense of brightness and angle – the reason the diameter of the optics is so important.

The bigger the better because it allows more light into the eye and the image is brighter – but the quality of the eyepiece and object lens is critical if a sharp and bright image is to be achieved – which is where our products come in.
