  1. Geoff Lygo (verified owner)

    Very satisfied, due to two eyes not matching well for binoculars, this is an ideal solution.
    Perfect all round magnification, easy to focus and seem very well made.

  2. Richard Martin (verified owner)

    Very, very pleased with my new Avalon 10×42 Monocular. Excellent crystal clear magnification, a lightweight well designed quality product and so much easier and more comfortable to use than a binocular. Can highly recommend !!

  3. Christopher Trim (verified owner)

    Very well made and nicely detailed. Lightweight and very portable, with a belt loop on the case. Good image and very useful at close range for enjoying detail or at 1km and beyond (eg for walking and comparing map detail with what you see) Precise focus mechanism and full usability of the lens diameter (unlike cheaper monoculars promoted on-line – which lose several mm all around). Ideal for use with a monopod, which is always useful anyway for bins, camera or video or on a tripod to keep a steady image for use with a camera, even at night.

  4. Susan Smith (verified owner)

    Looks good, easy to use and to carry. Good value for money. Came really quickly – ordered just before Christmas and came next day.

  5. Stephen Corcoran (verified owner)

    Very well presented but I couldn’t get on with it. I found that my shake was too much and this combined with the x10 magnification meant I was too slow to find a bird. I have an old pair of east German Zeiss 8×30 binoculars which are not much heavier but much easier to use allowing me to find the bird much more quickly

  6. Adrian Keith Menear (verified owner)

    Pros: good, clear view, of distant objects. Not too heavy, so easily portable.
    Cons: the front lens cap fitting is very poor, and came off, but went back on easily enough. The tab is far too thin, and won’t last.
    Overall: a useful item, which is a pleasure to use. You need to brace your arm, and hold your breath, to stop image shake, but that is okay.

  7. Susan Mary Cowie (verified owner)

    Very pleased with this monocular, exactly what we were looking for. Easy to use, compact, lovely clear image, ideal for viewing our garden birds and good to take with us when we’re out and about. Highly recommended.

  8. Anna Maria (verified owner)

    Great little item. The quality I had hoped it would be. Feels good in the hand & is simple to use. Like it very much & the casing feels classy.. Can now look closely at the garden birds & other creatures from my kitchen table.

  9. Alan Metcalf (verified owner)

    The monocular is better than than I was expecting. The image is so clear even in dull light. The monocular is lightweight and fits easily into a coat pocket.

  10. Clive Saunders

    I am thinking of purchasing one of these – I need one for long distance – can anyone tell me how good it is for distance viewing please

  11. Gavin Elliot (verified owner)

    bought it as I wanted something a bit more compact than regular binoculars, and my wife hates using them anyway. I have been pleasantly surprised with the quality of the image which has surpassed my expectations. The field of view is less than binos but I have not found this to be a problem. Best to use 2 hands and “anchor” them to your forehead to avoid image shake.

  12. Paul Neilson (verified owner)

    With regard to the retailer I cannot fault their customer service which is excellent. As regards the scope, I needed something compact, powerful, and detailed. This monocular is all of that and simple to work with. I have a small tripod with trustable legs that give me added balance which completes the package. The quality is excellent and in terms of getting what you pay for? This is a bargain. Highly recommended product and seller.

  13. Reg (verified owner)

    This monocular is really good and simple to use. It came through the post very quickly. My only suggestion is that some instructions should be included to help with attaching the wrist strap, as it is not at all obvious how it fits.
    Looking forward to using it on our next holiday.

  14. Michael Carter (verified owner)

    Finding it very good. Ideal for birdwatching when I’m on my bike or walking on the hills. Much better than lugging along my excellent but heavy binoculars.
    Service and dispatch were also very good.

  15. david jarvis (verified owner)

    Partner has mismatched eyes, so chose 10×42 monocular for her. This proved difficult to hold steady for her, so I returned it- refund process fast and efficient, thanks. Instead I’ve just ordered 2 x mini 8×32 binoculars for her (one is a gift for someone else) which I anticipate will be well received. Thanks

  16. Fred Becker

    I like it. Good price. Easy to use. Good image quality. Being tripod capable is a nice extra. The hand strap was a bit confusing but I figured it out. The ability to attach a neck strap would be a nice feature. Not sure how well the Platinum color will hold up to dirt over time. Lens caps fit fine. No complaints.

  17. Margaret Zometsky

    I haven’t used it extensively yet. I bought it for an upcoming trip. I have a fabulous pair of expensive binoculars that are great but very large . I was looking for light weight and compact and I got exactly that. I think I’m going to like it.

  18. Barry Whittle

    Can the Avalon 10 x 42 be used on a tripod

    • omerseas

      Yes, the Avalon 10×42 monocular can be mounted on a tripod. The 1/4′ tripod mounting socket is on the bottom of the monocular’s body. There is no need for an adapter to mount the monocular on a tripod.

  19. Julian Irinyi

    Beautiful piece of equipment.

  20. Gary (verified owner)

    Loving the monocular, I do a lot of hill walking and supervise groups for DofE. This is perfect for observing them form a distance, nice and bright and good magnification!

  21. Dee

    I bought this for my daughter, an avid hiker. She is thrilled with it. She tested it out by looking at the Space Needle in the distance from her apartment balcony. She saw people in the observatory with hands on the glass! Loved how light it was and its viewing power! Also loved its sleekness!

  22. Laura Morgan (verified owner)

    Great quality, everything present and correct!

  23. David cannon (verified owner)

    I bought this for my partner, he does archery from a wheelchair, he’s using it for seeing his scores on the target, anywhere from 20mt upto 70mt , it’s well made , and delivery was quick, my only negative is that I had to have a silver one

  24. Wendy Gilliard (verified owner)

    This isn’t a reflection on the quality of the product but I just could not get on just using one eye. Delivery and return was very quick and efficient. I have gone on to purchase binoculars which are more suitable for me.

  25. Colin Anderson (verified owner)

    With a poor left eye, this is clearly the viewing answer. Going to give it a proper test on a trip to India shortly, but it seems to have more controllable and quicker focussing, together with good bright optics.

  26. Miss Jane

    Absolutely thrilled. Desired Binos for a while, although with astigmatism in both eyes and differing problems found Binoculars slightly difficult, especially when needing to see ‘it’ NOW!!! Love the Monocular

  27. Dave Jeffries (verified owner)

    I’ve got a dodgy right eye and binoculars have been a problem in the past as a result. This bit of kit is a fabulous. Well engineered and well recommended.

  28. Ian

    Very happy with this monocular. Focussing is easy and I have a clear view with my glasses on or not wearing glasses. Better than my big binoculars.

  29. ian morris

    Just received this monocular and I truely recommend it for general ocean use. I surf and now having this mono is really handy to check out waves,that are out the back of the breaking zone and sure does make it easy to spot good waves.So glad I got rid of the old 7 x25 bino,s.This new mono is light weight,easy to use and fits in my pocket…just so handy.Great product.

  30. Rob and Sue

    This was a replacement for a cheap monocular that had given us a taste for such a device. It has been a complete revelation. While the price seemed a bit high the ease of focussing and very bright image makes the Avalon very satisfying to use. Very happy to recommend.

  31. Lynnda

    This is a beautiful piece of equipment. I have not used a monocular before so I am still learning. I like it better than my binocular but would have liked some written information with it. It only came with a pamphlet on binocular instructions. I am still experimenting but I am impressed with its clarity. I look forward to mastering its use. Also I was impressed with the ease of ordering and the very quick delivery. Thank you.
