I wanted a monocular to keep in my car and take hiking to get a better look at wildlife and scenery. The optics of this item is pretty good. I can read a street sign, white 2 inch letter on a green background at 3/10ths of a mile. The image tends to get a little fuzzy toward the edges. The mocular will focus down to about 12 feet, so it's good for nature viewing. I would personnaly prefer a little less power. Ten power is a bit much for a handheld device. You will need to use two hands to steady the glass. Quality is satisfactory for this price range. If you want better you will have to pay a lot more.
Pros: decently made
Cons: A bit too high powered
