If you want close-up views of distant objects, but need to keep the weight down, a quality monocular is a great choice. Binoculars or spotting scopes can sometimes be too large and cumbersome to bring along on trips to the beach, sporting events, or on camping excursions to scenic locations. The Orion 8x25 ED Waterproof Monocular is our smallest monocular, so you can enjoy magnified views of distant wildlife, birds, scenery, sporting events, and even the Moon without packing a lot of bulky equipment. It also features our best quality optics, utilizing ED (extra-low dispersion) lenses for extremely sharp, high contrast views with no false color. We've even applied dielectric coatings to the prisms to ensure the brightest possible image reaches your eyes.

All optical surfaces of the 8x25 ED Waterproof Monocular are fully multi-coated to ensure maximum light throughput so you can enjoy bright, vivid views, even in low-light conditions during dusk and pre-dawn hours. The monocular's wide 6.8 field of view provides an expansive view, and with 8x power magnification, it's easy to handhold and track moving target objects during use. The Orion 8x25 ED Waterproof Monocular features an amazing near focus of just 6.5 feet - more than adequate for viewing even extremely close-by quarry with 8x power magnification.

Eyeglass wearers will appreciate the Orion 8x25 ED Waterproof Monocular's comfortable 16.4mm long eye relief, as it allows you to leave corrective lenses on during use. For those who don't wear glasses, or who prefer to remove them when using optical instruments, the 8x25 ED Monocular features a twist-up eyeguard to help properly position your eye to take in the entire field of view comfortably.

A removable lanyard strap is included for convenient attachment of the monocular around your wrist during hikes, walks, or climbing sessions. And the monocular includes caps for both ends and a soft carry case, so it will always remain protected from dust and dirt.
