@Melonlity -- Not necessarily. While binoculars are great for short distances, a terrestrial telescope is what you need to see objects that are farther away.
Think about it this way. A pair of binoculars can be a great help when you are at a football game or out birdwatching, but what if you want to spot far away ships on the horizon? A pair of binoculars can do you some good, but a telescope will let you see much farther and there are times when you will want that range.
