Monoculars are a combination of a telescopes and a pair of binoculars. They are useful for hobbies like bird watching, hunting, camping and concerts or sport events. If you’re in the market for a monocular, might I recommend the ARCHEER 16×52 Monocular. It is one of the best monoculars on the market today. At only 350 grams it is very lightweight and easy to carry around. The detachable hand strap and compact size makes it easy to handle with a single hand. It is also 100% waterproof and fog-proof making it ideal for any weather.
Because my uncle is hobby bird watcher he wanted a magnification level that’s on the higher side. ARCHEER 16×52 Monocular has a magnification of 12X letting him focus on birds at a distance quite clearly. I was actually surprised by the quality of the image. When I looked through the monocular I was able to see the details of the bird quite nicely.
The monocular has a prism of BaK-4 type giving quite a good light and brightness to objects viewed. The optics are multi-coated to offer the best light and image crispness. And, because it is dual focus, it gives you two ways to adjust it in order to capture a satisfyingly clear image.
The body of the monocular is quite sturdy. It features a distance focal adjustment ring, a field view of 66m at 8000m and an eyepiece with dioptre adjustment. I was quite impressed by the distance I was able to view at.
The ARCHEER Monocular is also deal for any nighttime activity as well due to its high magnification (16x) and its large lens (52mm). This combination allows you to collect as much light as possible, even at night.
While the monocular does not come with a lens covers, it does come with a cleaning cloth and storage case. Overall this is a good, all-round choice, particularly for a novice monocular user like my uncle.
If you’re looking for a simple, inexpensive monocular then the ARCHEER 16×52 Monocular is the way to go.
