I figured the monocular was the way to go and it has proved to be perfect in every way.
Optics are great, weight and size are perfect. Field of view and depth of field couldn't be better. Construction and form factor are superior to anything I've tried. The 50mm front lense lets in loads of light, so even in low light conditions, the image is clear and crisp with no haze around the outside of the lense. During a black as pitch night, I took a look at the moon. Yup, I could see it in great detail.
Two slight problems. One is mine and the other is due entirely to the Polaris Explorer.
12x power is a lot of power. The greater the magnification, the more shake you get. This is easily compensated for by bracing against a solid object or using the tripod (provided). This isn't a flaw - it is a BTW.
I encountered one huge drawback with this product. Everybody - EVERYBODY - who takes a peep through it, wants to "borrow it," after which I would never see it again. All of my friends, a pretty loathsome lot to begin with, have to be frisked before they leave the after being within arm's reach of the Polaris. I've recovered the it times already. It would be easy to say I need new friends, but this product would tempt anybody to lust after it.
My advice ~ buy one for your very own and leave mine alone!
Update: a few days after posting this review, Polaris messaged an apology for the "defective unit" which they offered to replace if I sent the details of the order, which I duly did. That was months ago. Still nothing. Gee, this company sure has consistent standards.
We recently took a cruise to Alaska for 7 days. She carried that monocular everywhere with her shoulder sling.She loves it. It has amazing clarity and focus. The only negative I can give it (which is really not a negative but the nature of the beast) is that the with the large 50mm lens it is sometimes hard to keep the image from shaking. But the 50mm lenses provides a great image and works really well in low light situations. It was easily remedied by resting her arm on a rail or whatever for support. So its a give and take.
My wife was thrilled with the ease of use and how well it worked with only one eye. We both highly recommend this product. Check the online reviews yourself. Its always at the top of the ratings.
The test was during short trek to a dusty high desert bluff above a twisty river canyon near Prineville, Oregon. All the fall weather elements were present. Light wind, cloudiness and intermittent rainfall. Once on the ridge at the Chimney Rock destination, I could easily view details of the fly fishermen, campers, hikers and bicyclists from our 1500' high vantage point.
I used a basic camera tripod for stability [and left the Polaris' included mini-tripod back at the cabin]. The scope's rubber cladding kept out the moisture and dust. Its coated lenses yielded very good color and clarity, and I especially liked the size, location, and feel of the focus ring. Tripod mounted, it sits above the eyepiece, and felt very natural. It was easy to pan and keep moving objects in focus.
Pros: Light weight, compact size, well balanced, durable construction, easy to stabilize handheld or on tripod.
Con: Rear eyecup, not attached to the Polaris, instantly fell in the dirt.
