If you want the power of binoculars but don’t want the bulk and weight, a monocular could be the answer. It’s basically a small telescope you can slip in your pocket – half a pair of binoculars if you like.
James Marchington has been looking at the Seeker Pro 10×42 monocular from the new, competitively priced Chinese brand Eyeskey – and he’s impressed.
“I don’t use a monocular all that much, but this one is interesting,” he says. “It’s well priced at under £60 and feels good and solid, with rubber armouring all over for grip and protection.”
The Seeker Pro is nitrogen filled and waterproof. James likes the ribbed rubber focus wheel which is easy to adjust, and the twist-out eye cup for non spectacle wearers.
“This gives a lovely sharp picture which is nice and bright, with colours that are true to life and no visible chromatic aberration.”
James usually prefers to carry binoculars but concedes the Seeker Pro might change his mind. “If you want something that offers 10×42 binocular performance but slips in your pocket, then this could be worth a go – and at that price why wouldn’t you?”
