Monocular Telescope

Night Vision Monoculars â?? Where To Buy Cheap Night Vision Binoculars

Monoculars are just like binoculars, except they only have one telescope. The monoculars function on the same principle, getting images that are far from the viewer to become closer. While in a telescope, the image is usually inverted, the monocular uses two prisms, so it shows in the right orientation.

Because it’s smaller and weighs much less, bird watchers, hikers and golfers often carry a monocular with them.

It’s also used by those that don’t have much room and need something to pack.

Because you can use them with just one eye, monoculars also bring with them their own set of problems, the same problems one has when he uses a telescope. That’s why a lot of people prefer the bulkier binoculars than a telescope or a monocular.

They are used by a lot of astronomers, as monoculars are preferable when you want to look at stationary objects.

History says that monoculars existed in the past, including in ancient Arabia. There was even information about telescopic monoculars being made in the 17th century, mainly to be used by officers during war or in sports. Using it, you could see soldiers from a distance, and find out if they were friends or enemies.

The first case of documented history says that the first telescope maker was Hans Lippershey, but that’s only what can be found on paper. He wasn’t the first one to make such gadgets.

You can find monoculars at all kinds of prices, ranging from very cheap to very expensive. If we’re talking about the cheap versions made for kids, they can magnify images 3 or 4 times. If you want true magnification, like 30x, you will have to pay much more.

Wondering what kind of helicoper is flying above your neighborhood? What bird is building a nest at the top of the building? With a monocular you can answer all these questions. In many cases people that use monoculars love technology and they’re geeks sometimes.

A few of the monocular brands are Cobra, Nikon, Bresser, Dot2Shop, Inpro Optics, Tasco, WOW Stuff. The price for a monocular range from the cheap ones at £12.65 to expensive ones at £1,848.63.

There are also night vision monoculars, which combine a light intensifier tube with the glass lens system to provide a great image during night time. They also come with an infrared illuminator, which gives you vision even in pitch black situations.

What are these telescopes/monocular things actually called ?

I have seen this thing in a lot of movies before. I was watching "The Bourne Ultimatum" yesterday, where Matt Damon uses this mini telescope/monocular kinda thing for spying over.

The best thing i liked was that it actually works kinda digital and shows the distance too like 50m, 75m etc.

What's the usual price of a good quality (monocular ?).

Thanks a lot 🙂
I checked eBay, and found a lot of items like that

Example:

but will they show the distance digitally too ?

There are several different devices. Those that contain prisms to erect the image are called, hand held in small sizes, monoculars (in other words, half a binocular), and in larger sizes, spotting scopes. The latter are used on tripods for nature watching and checking targets while shooting. What you are asking about is a specialized version of these called a rangefinder. This has some means of measuring how far away the target is. These use various techniques to actually measure the distance. These include parallax (making two views coincide and measuring using trigonometry), measuring focus change, and bouncing a laser or infrared beam off the object. These are very much more expensive than a standard monocular/spotting scope, and are all called "rangefinders." Golfers typically use these to estimate the length of a drive.
