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.

So I know a little about scopes, binoculars and optics.
When my wife became interested in bird watching none of them were to her liking. She does not like binoculars and my spotting scope requires you to change the eyepieces to change magnification and she did not like the 45 degree eyepiece angle. She wanted something small and light that she could carry and use free hand but that could be put on a tripod when she wished. And she wanted a zoom to be able to see birds at a distance.
That is when I found the Orion 10-25X42 Zoom Monocular. I know the Orion brand as they make my main telescope, so I ordered with confidence. I was not disappointed. This is like half of a binocular so it has a wider field of view than most spotting scopes which is great for bird watching and for other daytime activities. The optics are bright and clear. The focus is easy to use and the zoom is silky smooth. I had seen some others that looked similar but they lacked a place to mount it on a tripod and that was critical for me.
We have had this now for a few days and have had a lot of time to use it. I am very happy with the purchase and, more importantly, my wife really likes it. It now sits on a light camera tripod in our dining room where she can use it to watch the birds on the feeder or across several neighbor's yards. We also take it to parks and the beach for bird watching there. As I end up carrying stuff I really appreciate the very light 12 ounce weight.
I find it more difficult to hold steady than my 10X binoculars but that is not the fault of the unit. If you plan to use it freehand you need to find a way to brace your arms. Anything above 10X really needs a tripod. I also ordered a car window tripod so we can watch the birds from the car if it is hot or cold or whatever. You move the window up and down to get the right height and the mount has a ball head.
I am very happy with this purchase and would recommend it to others. I may even try it for a little astronomy. I use 7X35 and 10X50 binoculars for astronomy, in addition to my telescopes. This is really half of a binocular so it should do just fine and, unlike my binoculars, this has a zoom eyepiece.
