I can't wait to take it to the Grand Canyon or any other national or state park where there are amazing scenery and wildlife.The tripod is very compact and stable and the phone adapter is compatible all smart phones.
The mobile monoculars provide a close view of the entire beautiful world at close range. It provides clear and sharp images, and I really like smartphone adapters. It feels very solid and the manufacturing quality is very good. See attached images for a before and after view!
For the price, its exceptionally great and attachments for the camera are good. The tripod stand is helpful for my kids when trying to look. The second image is the tower on the mountain zoomed in through the telescope.Nice product for the money. I used it for watching birds and planes.
This monocular telescope fits comfortably into a jacket pocket and has a hand strap for safety which also retains the rear lens cap. The handstrap attaches separately from the tripod mount, unlike a different telescope we have. It is comfortable to hold in my hand and it comes with a small adjustable tripod so it can be sat on a table or ledge. It can also attach to any other standard tripod that you may already have. Focus is adjusted through a dial under the index finger and fine focus with a ring in front of the eyepiece. The eye cup twists out to put your eye at the ideal viewing distance. I was able to focus clearly on houses a couple of streets away. I could not detect any color distortion and this will be a handy tool to take with me on country walks for general birdwatching. It also comes with a mount for a smartphone which holds the camera of the phone correctly over the telescope's eyepiece. I don't have a smartphone so could not test this piece but it looks like it would work well.
I love the quality of the pictures. I bought this for me son to view and take photes of birds. It fits his hand perfectly and is not too heavy.
You definitely need a tripod. Similarly, enlarge the phone to eliminate the circle picture. Very clear optics are amazing. This telescope has a camera attachment function. It can produce beautiful photos and is easy to use (iPhone 9 works very well)
We love taking pictures. Right now me and the missus sit on around 20k pictures and i seen these one and decided to give one a try. They are actually pretty cool. First it has a pretty good magnification i think is around 500mm?. Now the focus button could be a bit softer specially since u holding the phone. On the package comes with everything u need. First put the phone holder on the tripod and try attaching the scope but this didnt work so well so instead attached the scope to the tripod and phone to the holder on the back. On my galacy s10 i had to put the camera zoomed in not to see the black edges of the holder , should be make bigger but again it needs to fit in the scope. Zooming in fixes this issue. For video is even better since the video zooming is diferent than images so there is no black area. Also using it with no phone cover is better, get it as close to the camera as possible.It weight but not too much. Looks well build and comes with cover. In general happy with it..
Great for backpacking. Much lighter than fully loaded camera bag.
great monoscope, works great, amazing product recommend buy
Great for watching the purple Martins that come every year. Great product.
It has a handy bag for the scope itself, but would put the attachments, including the tripod in another one for ease of removing.
It�s better than I expected!
Pretty good monoscope. Got it for the range when I go out to shoot. Has a decent zoom and good clear view. The package came with a mini tripod, cellphone attachment and a storage bag. The monoscope seems like it's made from durable good quality plastic.
I was surprised with the quality of this product, the quality is really good, it feels that you have a professional equipment, I live near the airport in dfw and I bought this because I like to see the planes flying and with this product I was able to look them better and take some really nice pictures, it includes a tripod, I put 4 stars on easy to use because the instructions are not very clear, but in a couple of minutes and common sense I was able to setup everything.
Neat little tool for when I�m biking around and take pictures of buildings/ nature. Going to bring this with me on hikes as well.
For the size, it is easy to use and focus is great! Fit well to an iphone. Was an excellent Gift.
Currently used to capture a shot at an elusive.. albino cardinal.
Impressed my this monocular for the price. The phone mount worked great with my Pixel 4 but using the tripod is a must with your phone. In order to not have the circle effect in your photo, you need to zoom in on your phone.
I like to use my phone take photos, but it�s hard to take a nice photo with far distance.Very light and very easy to use. The pictures are great.Product works well. Really bulky and top heavy.
Love love love this.I put the monocular on my phone using the smartphone adapter and mounted it on a tripod, and let my little kid to watch the outside scene, i.Came with its own bag to carry it in and has cleaning cloth for lens. This product is very good for my needs, easy to carry, photos are very good.
First off I was impressed with the optics and size. The unit is so small and compact it would easily fit in your backpack or purse. I had no trouble seeing objects even with my glasses on.
The phone mount proved troublesome at first then I realized my mistake. Don't attach the mount to the monocular first. Attach it to your phone then align the cap on the bracket with your camera lens. Make sure you get the lock nut tight so it won't shift, then attach to the monocular. And point and shoot.
To give you an idea I took a photo of the blooming tree across the street, I was holding it so a little shaky but obviously a good picture given the distance.
Sometimes carrying a full size pair of binoculars takes up too much space in my hiking backpack or in a bag to a sporting event. This monocular is quite incredible in compact size and as to how far I can see things clearly. We occasionally have a herd of elk on a distant 3 mile away foothill range that you could never see with your naked eye. With a steady hand or the included mini tripod I can see quite far and actually see animals moving in the distance.
The monocular feels very well built and the lens caps & bag do a great job of keeping it clean & protected. The wrist strap is perfect for hanging the monocular to my hiking backpack with a carabiner for easy access. I would say a monocular is less conspicuous than a full size binocular & much easier to hold with one hand.
This is an amazing little monocular. It is small enough to have good high-quality zoom capabilities. So far, so good! It is compact and easy to use, just use it out of the box.
I use it mostly for sightseeing. I love how easily you can add a camera and this increases the zoom at lease five times more. It is lightweight but high quality. As soon as you hold in in your hand, it does not feel cheap but instead, very well made. Just a note. The monocular should be used with the focus knob at the top and the tripod screw at the bottom.
The quality is much better than expected, and it's perfect for bird watching or things that really look far away. Using a cell phone adapter, you can take amazing close-up photos.

I am going on a trip this year and wanted to purchase a monocular telescope after seeing many people with one on a previous trip. I thought I'd be spending hundreds of dollars for one. To my surprise this was cheaper than I thought and playing around with it a few days I'm super impressed. Highly recommend this for any avid bird watchers or travelers wanting to take some awesome shots or video.
I use this to check on the birds in the backyard. I love being able to track them by taking pictures/videos so I can see how the babies are progressing as they migrate. The clarity it has at long distances is very useful.
The tripod is okay, as I have it hooked up to a regular tripod since I leave it up most of the time.
Easy to use. Makes a good gift.
Good price, quality telescope, simple to focus.
This monocular works well. I like it because I work near the ocean, and I can keep this in my backpack and have it available any time if something interesting is going on in the waves.
I originally gave this 4 stars because of the stubby little tripod, only to realize later the tripod feet actually extend (face palm). I bought it so I can carry it with me when we go hiking with the kids. Adults can see well by holding it in their hands but toddlers can have a tougher time. Attaching a cellphone can make that image bigger.
* Solid build of the scope
* Tripod accessory
* Cellphone mounting bracket
* Velvet carrying pouch is a little add-on
* Zoom controls when holding it in hand are convenient
* When extended the tripod can be a little tipsy and easily pressed down, I would have like an option to lock-in the extension
* Cellphone mount is a difficult to align
* Instruction manual is terribly written, use of common sense shall prevail
* Zoom controls when a phone is mounted
Overall, its a great little gadget to have. The images taken from a cellphone will have a fish bowl effect, I recommend zooming in a bit with your phone's camera. It works great with night light too, just make sure not to point it at the source of light.
I can�t wait to try this out at the next meteor shower. It�s easy to attach to the phone and it comes with a case so I can keep it in the car for nature shots that I come upon. All and all it�s a really nice tool for photography.
Used this scope at a PGA golf event I volunteered at and it was great. Very easy to use.

This monocular is equipped with a large number of accessories. It includes a lens protection cover for the front and rear eyepieces, a storage bag, a hand strap, a lens cleaning cloth, and even a smartphone mount. I can easily adjust the focus using my index finger. Its lightness makes it very convenient for sightseeing.
Well made, easy and fun to use. It does a good job with resonable price. Based on other reviews, maybe I was not using it correctly or it had an issue. I just have to pay more to get a little better incarnation. This helps me took so many beautiful pictures.It is convenient for me to mount my phone on this monocular, and the images are very clear.Directions not clear but easy to figure out.

The material and surface texture of this monocular are very good, just like all high-end products, appreciate the vision and like it. Lightweight, easy to focus and easy to hold, it can maintain clear images even in low light.
This is my first spotting scope, so I don�t have anything to compare it to. With binoculars, I could never get both lenses to be clear and I don�t have to worry about it with this. The image is very clear and I can see pretty far. It�s also very compact.
I bought this for my husband, who has low vision. He loved it, especially since you can use your phone to see through the eyepiece to see better.
I am a nature lover and like to take pictures of animals that are elusive and spook easily. This monocular has helped me get some shots I wouldnt normally be able to get.
Clairty is out of this world!
When observing birds, it can be easily adjusted with one hand and feels comfortable. It works great and works perfectly, with clear and easy to use operation.
Incredibly sharp optics with excellent color rendition. Ergonimcally, the focusing is smooth and the unit is well balanced in the hand.
This is a great telescope. The attachment for a phone is very easy to use. The Quality of the phone does lose some clearness when zoned way. I would recommend this product, great size and price.
Bought this for my dad to take pictures of deer at the feeder to send us! Great quality and good value
This telescope is very satisfying to me. Well-made, with good optical effect and very light. The glass seems to be very durable. The bottom has a tripod connector, which can be viewed stably when connected to a monocular tripod. I really like it! !
You can see the objects from far away. It was fun. In the beginning I was facing some difficulties to use it and later on I realized that I have to do some tuning by rotating the wheel to focus and then need to zoom by touching the phone. Without zooming, there will be black circle around the object. You can judge more about the item from the attached picture. A tripod is very important part of taking the picture as you are zooming a lot and shaking your hand little bit will make the picture blurry.
Really nice quality for the price. The photo I attached is one through the camera on my phone and the other is through the scope. It really zooms in! Since I have a very large phone I doubt I will use it with regardless. I got it to look at wildlife and boats on the river. If I could find a phone mount that fits my phone I may figure it out. I really like the tripod. Very sturdy.
The well-built monocular can complete the work. The visual effects obtained using this monocular are perfect. This is very helpful for identifying birds !!

iPhone attachments work well. I have iPhoneX. Make sure to align it with the top camera, because the iPhone X has two cameras. Very easy to install and use. Very suitable for amateur bird watchers and photographers.
I really did like this because it had a very far sight and it was very clear I was sitting looking at the house addresses two blocks away. Good product good price.
For something so cheap this thing works awesomely well. Always had a gripe with my Note 9 camera that it cannot take good (accurate) pictures of the beatiful California sun and sunset
This fixed the issue
Bought to use for sight seeing in the mountains or looking at what's out in the water from the beach. Good , clear focus.
Traditionally I�ve used binoculars for events, but I was looking for something more flexible. I found this, and even though I use it primarily for watching sports events, I am glad for the accessories and option to connect it to my phone for pictures. Well, not for sports pictures, but it works great for distant images of still objects.
I can�t really compare it to those small accessory lenses that people use with their phones, since I never saw the value proposition in them. But if that is all you�re looking for, it would be much more portable than taking this on a trip with you.
It�s easy to use.
I have purchased a lot of binoculars. The binoculars are almost indistinguishable from the several binoculars I already have. It is very portable and comes with some different accessories, including a tripod. Compact, lightweight and easy to use. They are reasonably priced and work great.
Satisfied with their vision. Because of its small size, its function is very similar to many larger monoculars and binoculars. The magnification effect left a deep impression on me.
I can finally look at the birds in my yard in the winter eating out of the bird feeder without getting close and scaring them away
This is a great monocular! It is easily adjustable and seems well built, the view is great, we have used it for random bird watching and it made watching the bald eagles even more impressive. These are hd high power and easily fit my Android phone for some impressive pics and some great views. I'm very happy with this monocular and will be purchasing another.
At about 150 feet: Photo #1 is just using my cell phone. #2 using the monocular brings the posted sign into view. #3 picnic table at 100 feet using just the cell. #4 picnic table using the monocular.
I have used the monocular when target practice with an air gun so I do not have to walk over to the target.
Using the tripod makes it very easy.
PS sorry for the photo quality as it was snowing.
Mono telescope works well for the money. The tripod and phone attachment works but could be a little sturdier but at the price it works.
Bought it because I wanted a lense extender for my phone, but the phone specific ones are way too expensive and I couldn't ever justify the cost. I like that I can use this either for just looking around with my naked eye or taking pictures with my phone using the included tripod. It's not the best set of monoculars out there, but for the price I'm not going to complain. It's sturdy and I like the carrying bag.
It has incredible visibility and I have always liked it. It is lightweight, it can produce beautiful photos, and it is easy to use. I love it for its excellent performance.
I like its ease of use. The tripod is mainly used to keep the phone still when it is fixed on the eyepiece. Super convenient, light and easy to carry, it can be perfectly enlarged and fine-tuned. It can only be used to pass the time and observe the beautiful scenery around the house.
I like this a lot! It's easy, travels well, clear sight, very useful. Glad I purchased it
This is a cool little monocular telescope for the price. The place where is really shines is being able to attach your phone to it and take pictures or record what you see long distance.
This is a very light, yet solid, well made monocular. The included picture is about 75 yards away. You also get a great case for holding it and a small tripod if you really need to steady it on something.
