Either of these sentences could be correct.  It really depends on what meaning you are looking for.  Let me tell you what each sentence means.

The first sentence means that you used the binoculars to see the boy.  If you had not had the binoculars you would not have been able to see him.  But the point is that you are using the binoculars to look at him.

In the second sentence, the boy is using the binoculars and you see him without using binoculars yourself.

So when you ask for the correct answer, I'm not sure what the question is.  Both sentences use correct grammar, but they have very different meanings.
