Title: SPOTTING SCOPE WITH INTEGRATED LASER RANGEFINDER AND RELATED METHODS
Abstract:
An optical instrument, such as a spotting scope, is provided. The optical instrument may include a range finder configured to calculate or otherwise determine a distance between the optical instrument and an identified object. The optical instrument may also include a display and a user interface. In some embodiments, an operation system associated with the optical instrument may include sensing touchless gestures. For example, hand gestures or eye gestures may be used to navigate a user interface, to actuate the laser range finder, to alter the brightness of a display, or to carry out any of a number of other operational commands.
