HASH(0xa63563a4) out of 5 stars Good quality for the price 1 November 2011
By Stephen Allen - Published on Amazon.com

I am very pleased with this monocular. I am surprised at the quality for the price.
11.5 oz, lighter than my old Bausch & Lomb 10x28 binoculars (14 oz).
10x42: decent magnification and enough light-gathering for almost any time of day.
Waterproof. 5.75" long, 2.25" diameter, max height 2.5".
The viewfinder includes a compass direction display, and a superimposed reticule for range/height readings.
That means you can use it on the golf course to measure distance to the flag.
I use it hiking, birding, just being nosy.
I carried it to France this summer and used it to get up close to the cathedral facades.
It doesn't cost hundreds of dollars, so I will use it instead of over-protecting it.
Feels solid in the hand. Irresistible for any tool-geek on your list.

HASH(0xa62a19a8) out of 5 stars Very nice but very large too 15 February 2012
By TheChief - Published on Amazon.com

I purchased these to add to my kit bag. I liked the quality of the optics, reviews, compass, and mil reticle.

However, they are large and heavy. I was expecting something about 60% of the size of what they were. It is basically half the size of a full pair of quality binoculars.

Also, the strap provided hooks into a metal loop on the body and the eyepiece lens cover. This configuration pulls on the lens cover until it comes off while wearing or traveling with it which exposes the eyepiece lens to scratches and debris.

One other major point I forgot to mention...the compass require the bottom third of the viewing picture to be blanked out. So what that means is you cannot see anything in the bottom third of the scope...it's blacked out so you can see the compass and there is no way to get lost image area back. I dropped my rating down to three stars for this.

HASH(0xa5f8c6c0) out of 5 stars A little bulky, but solid piece with a good image at a modest price 8 May 2013
By Andrew - Published on Amazon.com

I bought this to replace a basic Tasco unit that got lost during the last move. I was happy with the little tasco as I was using it as a lightweight alternative to binoculars for hiking and quick spotting. Compared to my old tasco, this unit is a monster, which comes with mostly good and a little bad.
The bad obviously is its physical size. In its case it's roughly 3"x3"x6" which is not subtle on a belt or backpack strap. As for the weight, while noticeably heavier than my previous unit, I don't find it to be excessive, and actually found that it felt lighter than I expected, without feeling cheap. Speaking of cheap, the lanyard that comes with the unit is a little flimsy, and the fact that it's what holds the viewing objective cover on is a little anoying, as it has a tendancy, as another review pointed out, to tug at the cap, and sometimes dislodge it. Also, there is a slotted piece that protrudes slightly that looks like it was for a hand strap, which would have been nice, but was likely scrapped in production to cut costs. The case itself is nothing special, soft lightly padded nylon that functions mostly as a holder rather than a method of protection, which is about what I expected in this price range.
The other side of this coin is that because of the large objective lens, low light and night time viewing are substantially better on this model. Additionally the viewing angle is much larger which makes it easier to find and track objects. Furthermore, I didn't notice any significant distortion at the edges, something I was aware of on the tasco.
As for the range finding reticule, I could take it or leave it. I don't find that it interferes with my view, but I also haven't really used it other than for the novelty of it. I do like the compass, and while I would always carry a proper compass with me on a trip, it's nice to be able to determine the direction quickly while enjoying the view. Another buyer indicated that they didn't like that the compass took up the bottom 25-30% of the view, but had I not read that review, I wouldn't have even processed that I was "losing" a portion of the image. Even with that loss, the viewing area is still much larger than what I was used to.
Lastly it is water and fog proof. Thankfully, I can't speak to the effectiveness of this, but others have said it's solid, and it was a selling point for me since my typical luck with weather isn't as good.
In sum, if the bulk isn't an issue, this is great unit, well built, versatile and easy to use and it will provide a great image. If the size is an issue, then you need to decide if you want to spend a lot more money or sacrifice on the image quality and versatility.

HASH(0xa5e315a0) out of 5 stars Great Monocular at a great price!!!! 13 January 2014
By Bonnie the Knife - Published on Amazon.com

I actually paid about $28.00 for this! I had credit card points accumulated that I had not used. I actually got this about a week ago but I had not been able to use it due to a lot of inclement weather we have been having down here in South Florida. This monocular is a lot bigger than it looks. It is solid and well made. The range finder is easy to figure out and the compass comes in quite handy. If you wear eyeglasses like I do just remember to turn the rubber eyepiece down and you should have no trouble. I did some nature watching, birdwatching, and some stargazing. The optics were clear and focusing was quite easy. It is much more handy than a pair of binoculars and I cannot wait until I take this with me on my next hike in the Everglades

HASH(0xa5f5351c) out of 5 stars Celestron Oceana 8x42 Monocular, Black 3 November 2013
By Donald - Published on Amazon.com

Celestron Oceana 8x42 Monocular, Black. I read all of the other reviews and decided to purchase this monocular. I have had good luck with quality optics from Celestron before, so I felt confident going into the purchase. It arrived as promised ( Amazon is very good at shipping ). I took it into the field to test it and found the optics to be bright and sharp, easily focused and really not too big or heavy, as was noted in other reviews taking into account its design. The compass works in the bottom of the image and really does not interfere that much with the view. I have not worked with the reticle that helps determine the height of an object, but will work on that. I plan to compare the compass with a known accurate compass and will report on it in a later update. Apparently the compass is for taking readings relative to the viewer. I like the fact that the optics incorporate a BAK4 prism and that the optics are fully multi-coated. The monocular is water proof and comes with an adequate case and lanyard. All in all, I am quite happy with the purchase, at abut half of the MSRP. I think that for the money, it is unlikely you will find a better value in a monocular that is this feature endowed. I assign this product a review rating of four stars for delivering a lot of functional technology for the money. Techno-geeks, of whom, I am one, are going to love this monocular.
