Greetings,

Can anyone assist me with suggestion for good  binoculars for distances of 8.5 Nautical miles or 15.5 Kilometers.

I currently use Goertz 1909 10x45 Military observation  binoculars from a stable indoor platform with a tripod. Excellent vision at the closer rangers but not at the outer limits.

I wish to be able to see the funells and the ships name in more detail. Worried that if I go to a telescope or binoculars with too much magnification the field of view will be to small

Any suggestons
