A customer visited the Northern Optics outlet at Barton Upon Humber, having previously purchased the illusion 7×35 monocular. They was looking for a monocular with a little more light gathering capability. The obvious choice was the Hawke Nature-Trek 10×50.
First impressions was how clear and bright the image was. Long eye relief was ideal, as the customer was a spectacle wearer. The added benefit of a mini tripod was a pleasant surprise. When folded, the mini tripod became a perfect steadying aid.
As well as day light use, the monocular were also going to be used for astronomy. Fully multi-coated optics, nitrogen waterproofing, and a large 50mm objective makes them an ideal mini scope.
