Monocular: superior image quality with a compact size
A monocular is perfect when you want to benefit from excellent quality, with a compact size. For instance because you don’t have that much luggage space. Because you only have one lens and one ocular you save a lot of weight. As a result a monocular is much more compact than the roof prism and porro prism binoculars. This also means that you use only one eye to look through the monocular. The advantage of looking with one eye is that you can use the other to discover your surroundings. In addition, at twilight you will have a clearer image with a 42 mm front lens than with a compact 32 mm or 25 mm pair. Monoculars are mostly used in nature and during events, but are, because of their size and limited weight also perfect to take with you on adventures.
