Practially useless for the App that I bought it

by Legacy Reviewer, from United States, WA Written on May 14, 2011
I'm a meter reader, and I often have to read meters over fences (locked and/or dogs) and such. I needed a cheap, light monocular to carry with me. This is NOT the one to buy. There is almost no focal range. I was able to only read one meter with it, on a *sunny* day, at about a 40 foot distance. Usually, I'm closer, in the 8-15' range. This monocular is just about useless. Until I find another, I'm returning to using my Brunton Lite-Tech binoculars.
Cons: dark, little focus range...
Would recommend: No

Worthless Junk

by Legacy Reviewer, Verified Owner from United States, CA Written on April 25, 2008
This thing has only a quarter turn focus adjustment and can not be focused at distances over 10 or 20 feet so far as I can tell. Customer service unsympathetic, claims they sell it because NCStar puts their name on it and they carry the complete NCStar line, even though they consider $9 scopes junk. Don't waste your money.
Pros: looks ok
Cons: won't focus, flimsy strap attachment, unusable...
Would recommend: Yes

It's so small, it hard to expect much.

by Legacy Reviewer, Verified Owner Written on February 4, 2008
It's small objective, and high power would have been better optically with no or little coatings. I can't think of any reason ruby coatings would be preferred. It seems it could only be usable on the brightest of days.
Pros: It does work. It's neatly assembled.
Cons: It's very dark viewing through it, color is off viewing through it....
Would recommend: No
