Vixen Optics 11485 overview

  • 1Description

Premium lenses and prisms give the 6x21 HR ED Monocular from Vixen Optics a bright, crisp image, and its configuration makes it suitable for both long-range and close-up observation. Its combination of extra-low dispersion glass and phase-corrected BAK4 and SK15 prisms minimize reflection and maximize light transmission for a sharp view with true color and plenty of contrast. The 6x magnification is suited for everything from sightseeing to concerts and sporting events, and you'll enjoy and expansive 456-foot field of view at 1000 yards. Because the 6x21 HR ED can focus as close as 2 feet away, it's also suited to detailed observations in museums and galleries.

The long 17.5mm eye relief yields the full field of view to users who wear eyeglasses, and the 3.5mm exit pupil delivers ample light. Rubber armoring protects the monocular's housing and provides a pleasant, secure grip. This pocket-sized optic weighs just 5 ounces and fits easily into any pocket, pack, or purse.

    Vixen Optics 11485 reviews

    6x21 HR ED Monocular is rated 4.8 out of 5 by 5.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from My new binocular substitution for to travel light I was very stunning with my first look throught this monocular.I never used one before.I have a Nikon EII binocular 8x30. Ok,6x magnification against 8x is very remarkable.This for prospective customers. I knowed it before bec. I had 6x binoculares before. What I like with this Vixen 6x21 is,it feels very good built,precise and a joy to hold because the armoring.The sharpness is strictly comparable with my Nikon's. But now,I can see the different's from the resolution between my two eyes,which are little different,left and right..The field of view is amazing. Comparable,maybe a on the same level like my Nikon are,even the specs. says the opposite.Chromatic aberation with the Vixen is less (good visable).Of corse,you will have no 3D effect with a monoculare.The long eye relief make it possible to see through with my sunglasses on,which is not possible with the Nikon's,even the eye caps are folded down. So I can see the whole field of fiew.I am also surprised about the minimal distortion and edge blur,that I have not expected from this little equipment. For me,it is a worthy replacement if I prefere to travel more light and compact. Good hard case included,but because not round,a little bulky. Just one little negativ; the lens cap fits too close,so it makes impressions in the relatively soft armoring. The ocular cap fits nicer.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Little gem! I enjoy watching birds during lunchtime walks at work and purchased this monocular for everyday use since I don't always like to carry binoculars with me to the office. Very pleased with the Vixen unit, fit & finish are first-class and the optics are great. Very contrasty and sharp images, even in cloudy or twilight conditions. 6x magnification is perfect for a hand-held monocular. Very unobtrusive hanging around my neck & fits in any jacket pocket with no problem. I take it everywhere I go now. Highly recommended!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Better than binocs (for me) I returned binoculars in favor of this monocular, which is far lighter to carry and hold, yet gives me a clear, easily focused view of whatever is in my sights. Although the view of a monocular is considered to be less stable, the weight of binoculars makes them tiring for me to hold and, therefore, less stable in my hands. The optics are excellent and the field of vision is just fine for my purposes, which is simply to draw closer to view something or someone that is beyond my ability to see clearly with unaided eyes.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Much Better Than Expected for Its Size Love it! Monocular Image is surprising bright, large and clear for its size and don't get viewing fatigue that I've gotten with REI ED binoculars. Great!
    Date published: 2017-08-21
    Rated 4 out of 5 by from 6x monocular - Vixen or Zeiss? I bought this (from B&H) because I lost my much-loved 6x18 Zeiss monocular. I have owned several monoculars, being monocular myself. The Zeiss was great but I wanted to try something different as a replacement. This review compares the two: Vixen: robust, optically excellent - image not embarrassed by my Opticron 8x42 BGA; nice and bright with the 21 mm OG, longer eye relief (17.5 mm compared with 15 mm in the Zeiss); better field of view (8.7 degrees vs. 6.9 Zeiss); boxy, overlarge case. Zeiss: a little cheaper, VERY light (58g cpw 147g); even closer focus (30mm cpw 60 mm); faster close focusing; sensible slim case but no lens caps; eyecup fitting and lanyard eyelet cracked after a few years of use. It's optically great but the smaller OG gives the edge to the Vixen, and the extra eye relief in the Vixen makes a small difference to a big astigmat like myself. So, if weight is your main priority, go for the Zeiss; if you want a slightly better, wider image that's even easier to use with glasses, and don't mind the extra heft, fork out a bit more for the Vixen. (I am seriously thinking of getting the Zeiss 4x12 to give myself the best of both worlds!)
