You may be asking just what is a monocular and how is it different from other optics? Simply put, a monocular is a very small, low magnification spotting scope that can be hand held, easily transported, concealed and used without a tripod. It is comparable in its usability to a binocular, yet it is much more compact.
When selecting a monocular
, you should consider several basic criteria:
- Monocular Size
- Monocular Magnification
- Monocular Field of View
- Monocular Optical Coatings
The very reason to own a monocular is because of its size. Most monoculars are built to fit the size of an average adult's palm and they are designed to easily slip into your pocket, purse or daypack. Monoculars are also good for a quick zoom on any object of interest, i.e. the beautiful bird that just landed outside your office window or reading a license plate from across the parking lot. However, if you require a prolonged observation from a stationary position, it's best to go with a good pair of binoculars or even a spotting scope.
Monocular magnification is typically in the 3x to 10x range. It would be difficult to obtain a good image with anything greater than 10x without additional stabilization, such as a window mount or a tripod. The diameter of the objective lens determines to large extent the magnification power of the optical device. Since one of the main reason for owning a monocular is its user-friendly size, selecting one with a large objective lens and magnification is likely to be a compromise when compared to a compact spotting scope.
