|My son is doing his DofE and I would like to buy a reasonably good quality product to help him with it, do I choose a monoscope or spotting scope and which product(s) would you recommend? Oh, and keep the price below £100 please!|

|Thank you for your enquiry.
I would think that this monocular would be ideal for the Duke of Edinburgh Scheme, it is faily small, lightweight and waterproof. Having a 32mmm objective lens is also quite useful in lower light conditions.
The Opticron Waterproof monocular is roughly the same size as the cardboard tube inside a toilet roll (terrible thing to conpare it to, but the sizes are similar!) so it would fit into a rucksack quite easily.
A spotting scope I would think would be too much hassle as they generally need a tripod due to their very high magnifications.
|I am looking for a monocular for use when out walking.
I am just wondering if you consider the extra price for this one versus the TrailfinderII s worth paying? What will I be missing out on if I only go for the cheaper version?
eebc - Jamie
|The 8x32 monocular has a much brighter and sharper image than the 8x25, due to the larger objective lens (front lens).
The larger one is definitely the better of the two, but the decision probably comes down to how much you intend to use it - occasional use = the cheaper one, regular use = the good one.
If you are anywhere near Lincoln, we have them both in stock so you could have a look through each of them.
|After taking your advice, bought this product for my wifes birthday,
She is very impressed,light and easy to carry,great for our local bird/duck watching,as casual amateur these have opened a whole new hobby to us both. Thanks.

|Glad you are happy with it, but if you are the couple I am thinking of, your wife did all the work looking through them all!|
|I'm from Italy. I'm interested to know the price of the delivery to Italy. Thanks in advance|
eebc - Chris
|Airmail to Italy would be £7.00 and would be by International Tracked and Insured Airmail Click here for a link to a "postage product" you can add when ordering online.
(Please note, we only charge the difference between UK and international shipping rates i.e. shipping to Italy actually costs just over £10, our free shipping in the UK normally costs us around £3, hence the £7 quoted)
Opticron have asked us to point out that they do not offer any kind of international guarantee, if it required repair, and was ordered via a UK dealer, it must be returned to the UK for repair and shipping back to the UK and back to the customer is at the customers expense.
|Hi, just wondered what the carry pouches are made of for this monocular and the trailfinders, and would you consider them heavy duty material( eg like tactical/military cordura pouches) or the lighter end of the scale?|
|Sorry in addition to my last question could I also ask how securely the case fastens when closed, and whether it can be attached to a belt? Reason I ask is hiking in tropical forest where the flora tries to hang on to you.|
eebc - Chris
|The 8x30 and 8x32 Waterproof cases feel and look like nylon, the Trailfinder case seems to be sort of vinyl. Both have a little bit of padding between the outer and inner fabric.
I would have thought the case for the larger monocular would take more punishment, but neither are of the thick cordura variety.
eebc - Chris
|Both use Velcro on a fold over flap.
Both can be attached to a belt, and the belt loops are fixed in place (as opposed to some which have a pop stud at one end to allow you to put it on you belt without taking your belt off).
I have taken a couple of photos (as they say, a picture is worth 1000 words):
