"No sign of him with these electrobinoculars!"
―Luke Skywalker
Darth Maul with a pair of electrobinoculars

Electrobinoculars were hand-held viewing devices that allowed users to observe distant objects in most lighting conditions.



The device's internal display provided the user with information about the object's range, relative, true azimuths, and elevation.

With the built-in zoom capability, objects could be made to appear closer for detailed inspection, or the depth of a field could be widened for examination of the surrounding area. Additionally, radiation sensors and a night-vision mode extended the usefulness of this piece of equipment. A typical pair of electrobinoculars weighed roughly 1 kg. and cost 1,000 credits.

Electrobinoculars were sometimes confused with macrobinoculars, however there was a difference between the two. Electrobinoculars enhanced images through the use of sophisticated built-in computers, while macrobinoculars did not offer these features.
