Product Description

Our compact 10-25x power zoom monocular is sure to please any outdoor enthusiast thanks to its versatile magnification range and rugged, waterproof design. Measuring less than 7 inches long, the Orion 10-25x42 Zoom Waterproof Monocular is easy to take anywhere you want to enjoy powerful views of birds, wildlife, landforms, bulls eye targets, outdoor vistas and more! You can even glimpse craters on the Moon with this petite power performer on clear evenings. The variable zoom magnification is great for scanning at 10x power, then boosting all the way up to 25x for significantly closer views. The monocular's close focus ability of just 20 inches lets you zoom in on even close-by objects with stunning clarity. Images appear bright and detailed even during dusk and dawn hours thanks to the light-gathering capabilities of the substantial 42mm aperture objective lens. Views through the zoom monocular are correct-image just like a binocular, but it's much smaller in size and weight than even compact binoculars for enhanced portability. In fact, the lightweight monocular weighs less than a pound! Its waterproof, rubber-coated body protects the zoom monocular from the elements and occasional tumbles. A removable carrying strap and soft case with belt-loop are included. A handy tripod-adapter socket allows attachment to a tripod for extra-stable views.

The sight picture is crisp and clear and it's easy to focus while viewing.

Zoomed all the way out it's hard to keep from shaking but I was standing at the door to my office, not resting my arms on something.

All I can say is wow. I purchase this product without reading Amazon reviews due to there not being any. I read some reviews at other sites that said this was a good monocular, and knowing the Orion name I went for it. I personally don't like binoculars I can never get to where the image is clear with both eyes. I am very happy with this item. I can zoom all the way out and read the emblem on a refriderator in a guys yard at almost half a mile. Zoomed all the way out it's hard to keep from shaking but I was standing at the door to my office, not resting my arms on something. This is a great little item I'd recomind it to others looking for a great monocular for the money.

Compact, light, and decent glass. on higher zoom levels in moderate light (20+) it gets a little hazy like other small MM objective variable power scopes. The image is smaller than viewing capacity and stable at 10x and fills the entire view at about 15x with excellent clarity. No lens caps but a handy neck strap and a run-of-the-mill case. Overall a good compact spyglass for hikers, pirates, and nature enthusiasts.

Just got this item, and find it will work great for hunting/hiking/spotting. The case is fully enclosed now(to address others concerns), comes with a lanyard as well (which is a plastic piece that screws into the tripod mount hole). Adjusting focus is pretty smooth, even zoomed in. Very clear picture at all levels of magnification. If you have reasonably steady hands, you will be able to use the scope fully zoomed in with the help of a tree or some other brace, but a tripod would be needed for very fine details. I am very pleased with this purchase, and would (and will) recommend.

I knew I wasn't buying a Bausch & Lomb, a Nikon, or a Ziess. However, the optics are clear enough, I am not able to tell the difference. There's no distortion or (ready?) chromatic aberration. Starting out at 10 power, it is just a bit hard to hold steady. There is a 1/4X20 mount for attaching to a tri-pod. There isn't any dust caps, as has been mentioned in other reviews. For a reference on image size, the full moon doesn't quite fill the viewfinder at 25 power. Great little and light telescope. And for the price, if you scratch the lens, throw it away and buy another.

I use the monocular during sketching live models during art sessions since my eyes do not focus as sharply as they once did. I got this idea from David Jon Kassan while observing his portrait drawing demonstrations during the Portrait Society of America's 2013 Art of the Portrait Conference in Atlanta, GA. This allows you to see close up details of the eyes, ears, lips, jewelry, etc at a reasonable distance without having to get up close to model. I highly recommend this instrument for any artist that may not have the sharpest far sighted vision or who simply likes portraying more detail with relative ease.

Maybe I got a bad one. In reading all of the rave reviews it must be a fluke. From the lowest of 10x to 25x everything has blue around it (chromic abarration?). It focuses fine and easy, has a tripod mounting hole, has great magnification, and is otherwise very nice and comfortable to hold. It would be otherwise good at the shooting range up to 100 yards. I can't accept all of the blue fringe so I am sending it back. The fixed model 10x with a 42mm lens has no fringing at all but I needed a monocular that can adjust magnification. I cannot recommend this.

Update 3-25-14:

I received another and it also has a blue fringe around things. I was told by Orion Customer Service (fast reply) that the 'blue fringe is normal and expected with this model but not in the center, just at the edges'. This is the only monocular I have experienced blue fringes with but it also has the largest lenses. I do like the variable and larger lens, but I do not like the blue fringes.

Update 4-28-14:

I received another and kept it as I really like the variable, but it also has blue fringes, less than the others it seems but is still very obvious. I assume it is a trade-off so I kept it for the variable power and size of lenses. It should do fine for my purpose of travel, but it is likely not great for birding and getting accurate colors. I also recommend the Amazon Basic monopod for it as it has a screw-in spot for a tripod/monopod. I had tried several scopes and found this to be the only with abberation but the best in power. It is very comfortable to hold and carry and comes with a wrist strap and belt case with cleaning cloth. Thanks to Amazon returns with Prime I was able to compare. I am glad to have it now, and I hope this helps someone.

I really wanted to like this monocular for watching shorefront bird and marine life. It's much lighter than Steiners that I use for boating, and while no where near as sharp the overall clarity is quite good, except at highest mag as others have noted. And the ability to focus close-up is a big plus, e.g. to examine beach life. But that distance range also means one uses the focusing adjustment a lot, and this is the weak point. There's a lot of resistance to movement of the focusing ring, and it's uneven through the range making it both hard and annoying to use.
Worse, after about a month a big black flake appeared in the middle of the field. Couldn't get it to disappear, or even move, by changing focusing or magnification so I assume something fell onto one of the internal lenses. Amazon promptly sent a replacement - but it's focusing adjustment was even worse than the original. So sadly I opted to return it and am looking for another monocular.
