While the Bosun may be in charge of the deck activities, hull, and rigging, good Bosun's also want to keep an eye on the horizon. This spyglass is compact, measuring 3"x1.25" when collapsed and 6.25"x1.25" when fully extended. It has 5x magnification and comes with an attractive wooden case for stowage when not in use. The always exposed end of the spyglass is wrapped in black leather while the extending portions are brass. Light-weight, durable, and accurate, this spyglass will round out the collection of any mariner or nautical aficionado.
