Mistery 7-14 x 25 pocket zoomable monocular

We have to start this review saying that mistery is the brand of the monocular, nothing misterious about it.

The monocular is made of rubber with glass coated lenses, there are two rings as controls. One of the rings controls the monocular focus and the other controls the magnification factor from 7 to 14 times.

The image quality is good and the focus is easy to set, the bigger the magnification factor the more narrow the area where you can obtain focus in 7x the image is clear and the details can be observed very well in 14x the image is still clear but not as clear as in optical instruments of higher quality.

The lenses are fine but do not capture enough light for the diameter they have, probably due to a suboptimal coating or the lens construction itself, this means that the monocular won't operate very well in dark environments and won't be able to pick many details after sunset.

The monocular is 5.5 inches long, slightly bigger than the regular pocket monoculars but this one is zoomable and the others are not so the extra size is easy to explain. The construction is solid and the monocular seems to be well made for its price.

A good product that works well in both 7x and 14x but don't expect extraordinary images.

You can order for $17 from DealExtreme.
