1. What is a monocular?  

Monoculars are tiny, low-magnification telescopes or monoculars that you can hold in your hand like binoculars but use with one eye like a telescope.  Monoculars share features with binoculars and monoculars, but are much smaller than either.  Size, then, is what a monocular is all about.  

Some binoculars are no bigger than your thumb or thicker than a good ink pen, and any binoculars can easily slip into a pocket or purse.  When a single telescope or binoculars, even compact ones, are too big to carry around, there will always be a single telescope.  There’s no reason to leave home without your binoculars.

A single-barrel device with a lens in the front and an eyepiece in the back, we can think of a single-barrel telescope as half a binocular, or a mini-telescope if you will.  In addition to being useful for observing wildlife from a distance, their compact size and lightweight construction ensure they are very easy to pack when hiking or exploring.  They can also be held safely in the palm of your hand, while the focus can be adjusted with the same hand, making it easy to operate in terms of user-friendliness.  

2. Advantages of a monocular 

Monoculars have many advantages and disadvantages.  Among their many advantages, of course, they can be small, compact, and lightweight.  Compact models fit in every pocket, and they come in handy quickly when you need to explore something.  And because they are only “half” binoculars, a single telescope costs half as much.  

One drawback of monoculars is the lack of relaxed vision, which can lead to rapid eye fatigue.  Their structure also makes them prone to irritating side-light effects and a less wide field of vision.  

Monoculars are best used for situations where it is not necessary to continuously observe distant moving objects but only briefly observe distant objects, such as aiming while hunting, measuring distance while playing golf, or looking at something quickly.  

3. monocular lens coating  

The function of lens coating is to reduce reflection, increase transmittance and improve observation brightness. The color of the coating should be determined according to the optical material and design. The lighter the coating and the smaller the reflection, the better.

If you are used more when outdoor travel, carry bird-watching or watch competitions, sports meetings, concerts, choose binoculars, its internal structure is more stable than a single tube, more stable, more convenient to carry.  To observe the astronomical landscape, we must use a double telescope, which is a single barrel.  There is a special triangular bracket, if your bird-watching pursuit of high quality, you need to take pictures to stay to choose a single barrel, the double-barrel you install in the camera is very inconvenient.
