Vortex 8x36 Solo Monocular
Key Features
  • Roof Prism Design
  • Fully Multi-Coated Lenses
  • O-Ring Sealed/Waterproof & Dustproof
  • Nitrogen-Purged/Fogproof
With a generous objective lens, a stable image, and a housing designed to withstand the elements, the Solo 10x36 Monocular from Vortex is suited to birding, hiking, hunting, travel, sightseeing, concerts, sports, theater – anywhere you want a good look at distant details. The Solo's 8x magnification has plenty of power for long-range observations, but is less susceptible to image shake than higher powered optics, and the 36mm objective has light-gathering power for a bright image even at low-light times such as dawn and dusk. This combination of magnification and objective size yields a wide 60° apparent angle of view – that's nearly 400 feet at 1,000 yards. This monocular also offers a very useful close-focus distance of just 16.4 feet.

A built-in utility clip makes it easy to hang the monocular on a belt, strap, or pocket when you need your hands free. The rubber-armored housing is O-ring sealed to keep out water and dust, and is purged with nitrogen to prevent internal fogging no matter the conditions.

Asked by: Hannah
Get some Sugra from Amazon. It's a moldable putty a lot like playdoo that you can for a ton of handy things with. You can shape it for up to about an hour, the let it dry overnight until it's like a solid rubber\plastic item. Really handy. An 8 pack of singles is under $20. It will take 2 or three singles most likely. Trust me, you will find uses for the rest. Great stuff for problems like this. You may mess up the first time so it's handy having extra. Hope this helps.
