" ...  Inside was a nice lightweight but sturdy monocular, easy to set-up stand - extend legs so it is not top-heavy, covered lenses and with a little practice and eye placement (if you're used to binoculars), good viewing.  ...  "
comment
" ...  I bought the lens for my cell phone (android) for an upcoming trip. ... The optics are sharp, brilliant and have no distortion. ... I have a more sturdy tripod I'll be using for my photography but you should remember that using this kind of power lens means handholding shots isn't in the cards.  ...  "
comment
" ...  The only possible drawback I can see, is that because of the long focal length, even on a full-sized tripod (not the small, tiny one that came with it), the slightest nudge, bump, or touch blurs the focus terribly, to the point that the one above had to be taken using the camera's voice command option, w/o touching the camera at all.  ...  "
comment
" ...  Keeping the aperture aligned with the hole in the lens cover is a bit tricky. ... Focus adjustments at the eye cup and the top of the unit turn easily and focus the lens appropriately.  ...  "
