Bought some new monocular(s)

I got this

I've been wanting some monoculars, I don't know why. Maybe because they're easy to carry. I got the red to match my SAK. It's my present for myself. I'm about a day or two from joining the NO-Life club and thought I needed something special.  :D

A monocular is as fitting a gift for the No Lifer as anything! :P

Seriously, that's actually pretty cool looking- much better than the monocular I use which is actually half of an old pair of broken binoculars!

Next you will need a monocle, and a change to that avatar picture!
I stand by my statement of a couple weeks back; monocles should make a comeback!

My name is Calvin and I too am a monocular lover! ::)

I found quite a few relatively inexpensive models to be had. I however needed a "extreme close focus monocular". They are a little harder to find but find a few I did!

The first one I found came from our friend Marc at EDC Depot. Very nice and focuses down to 13". I use it at work all the time. :)

This one is from another one of my favorite sites, Duluth Trading. It focuses down to 10".

I think I have one or two more but they're at work can't think of the models. I just can't believe I'm not at work! :o

Well they arrived today. I like them, although I need to remember to look through them with my left eye. My right eye is just blurry, although it's a much closer up blurry.  :D :D

I love monoculars... I have a few :D

My favorite is the Brunton Echo Pocket Scope

I have never owned a pair of monoculars. I think I may buy one sooner or later!

Well I don't know. If I bought another monocular, then I'd have two. And yes I'd have a pair of monoculars but I still wouldn't have binoculars. I think, hell I don't know. I need some damn pork rinds.

I like monoculars too. Especially the smaller ones with good optics.
Some of my toys:


Zeiss "Turmon" 8*21  folding monocular   (ARC for size comparison)



Steiner 8*20 folding monocular  (newer version of the Zeiss)



Zeiss 5*10  pen-style



Zeiss 6*20



Something special:
A monocular-adapter for Nikon lenses

Wow... those minoculars look really good.  How expensive are they though?

The Zeiss Turmon has an excellent optic.
Sometimes you can get it really cheap.

Try ebay.com or ebay.de, search "Turmon".

I'm going to have to look a little more into these as there were countless times over the past week when one would have come in handy.

I'm back!!
