The 8x42 Battalion Monocular from Barska offers the same optical quality as Battalion series binoculars at half the size of their dual optical channel counterparts. A built-in tripod socket and long 22mm eye relief complement the 8x magnification and makes this optic a convenient alternative to lugging around a spotting scope for close to mid-range observations. A textured rubber focus ring on the objective bell allows the observer to focus the monocular to within four feet. This water-resistant monocular features a fully multicoated lens system and BaK-4 prisms that help the 8x42 Battalion transmit enhanced contrast and clarity. Tripod not included.
