The Viking Monocular 4 x 12 is a great, lightweight and compact monocular. This Monocular is able to focus at close range (under 1m) enabling a detailed viewing of insects like butterflies and dragonflies without disturbing them. It also features fold down eyecups for spectacle wearers as well as innovative coated optics which prevent internal reflection. The prevention of internal reflection in the Viking Monocular produces a more contrasted image and increases light transmission. An excellent Monocular for all purposes.
