Excellent features for the price.

  • Excerpt: I use this monocular for telephoto camera picture acquisition shots. It works great and the compass allows me to share observations with friends nearby while I grab the camera . It also has a ranging reticle to allow distance estimations. I haven't noticed any eye fatigue from extended use either.
  • Pros: Accurate Ranging, Don't Need Batteries, Easy To Use, Nice Nylon Carry Case, Very Clear Lense
  • Cons: Eye Cups Little Too Loose

Nice spare

  • Excerpt: I wanted an economical pair of binoculars to leave in my car as I already own a pair of Celestron 8X42 binoculars that I use for birding. I am pleased with this pair and also plan to purchase another pair for my grandson. I also have a Celestron scope, so I knew I was getting a great product.

A nice little monoscope

Sebastian, opticsplanet.com

  • Summary: This little monocular is quite big in size. Have a 42mm objective with 8X magnification. Contrast is quite good for this magnification and great FOV as well. Chromatic aberation minimal. Image is sharp & crisp. But it carries quite a heavy price for this small wonder.
  • Pros: Compact and light weight
  • Cons: Heavy price tag

Celestron Oceana 8x42 Monocular

  • Summary: The field of view is very relaxing to the eye and the optics are bright and precise. I am able to indentify electronic devices by type, on my towers, with this monocular due to its clarity. The compass allows me to check the positioning of antennas on towers.

Highly recommended

  • Summary: Good quality product and excellent value for money. Ok for spectacle wearers, can see fine without taking specs off, just wind down front lenses. Highly recommended, can't fault them.
