Picard, binoculars

Binoculars were a device used by Humans and other species. They had small identical mirrors inside them, which allowed a person to view distant objects with both eyes.

In 1986, a whale hunter stationed on a crow's nest aboard a Scandinavian whaling ship was using binoculars when he spotted George and Gracie. His captain had binoculars, which were supported by a wooden beam, and he used it to confirm the sighting. (Star Trek IV: The Voyage Home)
