Nice except not enough eye relief if you wear glasses

  • Excerpt: I'm a sketcher and I thought I'd try a monocular so I can easily switch between distance and my sketchbook. This one has a clear view (far and near), it's easy to use and isn't bad indoors (e.g. in a museum). Unfortunately for me, I wear glasses and the eye relief of this model isn't very good.

  • Excerpt: I wanted something that I could carry easily in my brief case to have available to look at birds and other wildlife. Also, I live right by Lake Michigan and I wanted to be able to observe freighter traffic on the lake as I take my walks.

A nice, good quality monocular

  • Excerpt: I keep this in my brief case for the occasional need to view birds or other distant items while on business travel. It provides a nice, bright and clear view at a reasonable distance. While there are better quality monoculars available, this one provides a good value for the price.

Great value!

  • Excerpt: We use it for casual bird and wildlife watching. Image is very clear and bright considering its only a 25mm objective. Close focus is a nice bonus. Build quality is excellent. Very easy to carry around. Fits in any pocket. Far exceeds my expectations.

  • Excerpt: Beautiful optics for such an inexpensive monocular. Smooth focusing all the way through the range. Quality I'd expect from a [$] unit

  • Excerpt: Excellent for reading small type from a distance. Easier to get a steady view than others tested.
