Opticron 8 x 30 Monocular
on 10 January 2012
This is a very good Monocular the quality is very good and the 30mm diameter lens lets in a good amount of light to ensure that a good image of the subject is visible.
I have also a small quality monocular (10 x 25) but the Opticron is superior in every way. The only down side is that this monocular is a little heavy but is robust and waterproof.
I always carry in the glovebox of my car and take it with me on walks, holidays, golfing trips etc.
I prefer a monocular to binoculars as there is no fiddling to get the pitch set right for your eyes and adjustments for weaker / stronger eyes etc.
Also a monocular is half the weight. There is an LE version but this is for those who need a long eye relief (Extented rubber on eye piece) for use with spectacles.
Good build quality / Good Optics / Will last a lifetime if properly cared for.
