The 8x42 Cavalry Monocular with Compass from Celestron is a weather-sealed optic designed for mid-range observations. This Cavalry series optic includes an integrated ranging reticle that assists the observer with estimating the distance to and size of objects within the field of view. And a built-in 6400 mil magnetic compass displays the observer's direction at the bottom of the field of view.
Cavalry series optics feature fully multicoated lenses and BaK-4 prisms that render enhanced clarity and color fidelity. An immersive 56° apparent viewing angle and non-slip rubber armoring complement the 8x42 lens system and help provide a user-friendly glassing experience. The Cavalry monocular has a nitrogen-filled housing that is built to withstand heavy rain and deliver fogproof performance, making this Celestron optic ready for a wide range of outdoor glassing activities.
