View, capture, and share photos and videos through a magnified optic with the Carson Optical 8x42 MonoPix Monocular Digiscoping Kit.
The first part of this kit is a powerful and versatile 8x42 roof-prism monocular. This configuration is ideal for general-purpose observations from dawn through dusk, and with a wide field of view you can enjoy looking at large areas with minimal head movement. Anti-reflection fully multi-coated optics help to produce accurate color representation with improved contrast and clarity, and the wide exit pupil and long eye relief make looking through the monocular comfortable for anyone. It can be used handheld for fast glassing on the go or tripod mounted for steadier views and better photo and video capture.
If you want to document your kid's soccer game, an elusive bird, or a prize buck, simply install the included HookUpz Universal Smartphone Adapter. Designed to quickly mount and remove from the eyepieces of all kinds of optics, the HookUpz will accept most sizes of smartphones, including those with dual cameras, and holds the phone's camera lens securely centered to the optic's eyepiece for taking photos and videos.
