The Hawke Optics’s Nature Trek 10×50 monocular gives the same high performance as the Nature Trek binoculars, but without the weight. These come complete with a table top tripod, but I prefer to use as a steadying handle.
The optics are clear, bright and crisp right to the edge. Low light performance is excellent, making them suitable for wide field astronomy.
Handling takes a little getting used to, with the large focus wheel above the eyepiece. Some people seem to find them difficult to use with one hand, which rather defeats the object. On testing I personally find single handed operation easy.
The eye cup is twist out, and there,s plenty of eye relief for spectacle wearers. Perfect for hiking.
