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!
However, I'm a casual bird watcher and lens clarity is important to me. I could never get a real clear view of the local birds, which tend to be on the smaller size where I live (Willamette Valley, Oregon). And it progressively got worse when I tried to focus on larger waterfowl in the distance.
I also am doubtful about the 10 power magnification claim. I own a mid-priced 8x42 Leupold binocular. The Leupold product brings birds, etc. in noticeably closer than the 10 power Polaris monocular. Now I admit there might be some "physics?" issue related to the power of one lens versus 2 lenses that I don't understand or know about but I could tell a difference.
I did feel the build quality of the Polaris monocular looked and felt very good. A bit of advice: anything over about 8 power is very difficult to hold still without some kind of support (tripod, etc). If I continue seeking a monocular it will be 8 power or less and I would probably be willing to step up a little in price.
I will give kudos to Amazon related to how easy it was to make this particular return. I was able to leave it at a local Amazon drop box.
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.
