The Pentax 8×42 Monocular is one of our most unique products. Designed for the birder, photographer, hunter or biologist or anyone in the outdoors. This is essentially one piece of an excellent pair of binoculars. The 8×42 monocular is a high quality single tube with CL/FC/BMC/FBMC multi-coatings and a BaK4 prism. The exit pupil is 5.05mm and the eye relief is a whopping 17mm. The field of view is 393 ft at 1,000 yards with an angle of view of 7.5°. The relative brightness is 25.5 and the minimum focus is 2m. It is waterproof under JIC class 6 specifications and is dunk able to 1m for 3 minutes.
A monocular lets you keep one eye on the object and one eye on the scene around you. Let’s say you are birdwatching, you are able to spot the bird with the monocular and then if it flies away, you can follow it with the open eye until it lights on another branch or flies into another tree. Same holds true for other interests like hunting or sporting events.
The most unique feature of this Monocular is that includes a magnifier or Loupe. This loupe screws to the outer objective of the monocular and becomes a field microscope of sorts. With the magnifier added, the monocular becomes a 32x close-up wizard. If you are into bugs or planet life, this magnifier allows you to increase the actual size by 32x. The magnifier design allows you to place the monocular and magnifier directly over or on the subject matter and with the holder, it allows daylight to illuminate the object.
