If you want to stay with something tiny, this is a great scope for the cost, but you may want to also check out the Roxant scopes. The Roxant I purchased at the same time is also a 6x zoom, but 30 mm objective lens. The Roxant is considerably larger and does cost more, but what an incredible difference the size makes when it comes to bird watching and other activities. Don't waste your time or money on the MiluoTech 16x52. While it is a similar cost as the Carson, the Carson is far superior to the very blurry MiluoTech.
Bird watching: The MiniMight is good enough to make identification and take observations at a variety of distances. I've observed a stellar's jay at 40 feet, an acorn woodpecker at 50 feet, a red-shouldered hawk at 60 feet, and a flock of wild turkeys at 300 yards.
People watching: Nothing creepy, of course. But I'll give an example of the way it's useful. You are wondering if you should take a shortcut through a neighborhood that has a bad reputation. It's a few blocks away, but you think you see a couple of guys with hoods over their heads looking pretty shifty. You look through the monocular and realize it's two really cold teenage girls waiting for their mom to take them on a shopping trip.
Airplane watching: From 1,000 to 20,000 feet you can determine any number of things about aircraft. Civil or military, color, number of windows, etc. This surprised me but the magnification is really that good.
Hiking: Sometimes I wander around on trails without reading the map. The woods around here are pretty open, not a ton of undergrowth. I've used the MiniMight to read trail signs that were about 100 yards away up steep inclines. The benefit there is pretty obvious. Another time I was trying to identify a structure that looked like a shed, only to discover as I focused in that it was a public restroom. Couldn't have come at a better time, since I had wandered pretty far that day.
Amusement: Identifying structures is really fun. I was looking at a huge water tower about 300 yards out when I saw the flock of wild turkeys below it. I've tracked animals that didn't know I was tracking them, showed my kids how to be detectives, figured out that our local hillside letter is not made of painted rocks as I had assumed, identified small curious objects in areas I couldn't get to, and answered a number of other questions that were at the back of my mind.
1. Eyeglasses. Even if you fold the rubber shade back, the view is not as great with eyeglasses on. Some people are used to it; others just take their glasses off (I slide mine up my forehead).
2. Vibration. You'll need a bit of patience and sometimes some slow breathing as things won't always hold steady in your view. I don't find it annoying, but some might.
3. Sharpness. Some details will just never pop into perfect focus, as much as you fine-tune the focus ring. I'm OK with that and understand it as an engineering compromise. If you need quality sharpness you should not be looking at this price point, sorry.
Overall: I have a couple of pairs of binoculars but I leave them at home every time. The portability here cannot be beat. You won't regret this purchase especially not if you give it a few weeks of active carry.
