About this product

Model:  optcrn_gallery_8x20_mon_30165
Part Number:  30165

Named with the art critic in mind, Opticron Gallery Scopes are an excellent tool for the macro study of wildlife as well as easy to use field monoculars that fit unnoticed into a shirt pocket or backpack.

Boasting a high quality Japanese made roof prism optical system, the models deliver crisp clear images with a useful 12.5° (4x12) and 6.8° (8x20) field of view.

Focusing at 15m and over requires only small adjustments in the focusing, but wind the focusing fully out and you will be rewarded with close focus down to 20cm (4x12) and 30cm (8x20) for detailed inspection of all kinds of flora and fauna.

Great little looker
Saturday, 13 October 2018  | 

I wanted this to keep in my pocket for a few scenarios
1) Going for a walk when birdwatching is not the primary activity but I might want to take a closer look at something
2) Daytrips / City mini-breaks. Seeing buildings / artwork etc. up closer
3) Going to music concerts and not wanting to lug binoculars or a big monocular around

It's a great product for these activities. The field of view feels good and the image is quite sharp / bright. The focus can be pretty much set-and-forget for anything >10m. If you're used to 8x or 10x magnification this won't seem like it 'zooms' you in very much but you'll soon realise it allows you to still see much better than unaided and 4x keeps the shakes way down (which is important on such a small device). I haven't tried the 6x but I expect the shakes, less bright image and reduced field of view wouldn't make up for the extra magnification.

I've also found it great for spying on insects from ~30cm away - they are much less easily disturbed than trying to get within a few cm for a magnifying glass / loupe.

If you're wondering how it feels to carry, it's probably most similar in size and weight to a D-cell battery.
