Celestron 71212 Overview

  • 1Description

With premium optical components, navigation and observation aids, and a weatherproof design, the 8x42 Oceana Monocular from Celestron offers high performance in a wide variety of situations, from hunting and hiking to sporting events and concerts.

The Oceana features BAK4 prism glass and fully multi-coated lenses for a bright, high-contrast image. A built-in ranging reticle lets you estimate the size and distance away of an object, and the integrated compass allows you to establish its direction (and yours). The monocular's housing its waterproof and fogproof, and is armored with rubber coating for protection and a comfortable grip. The 8x magnification is strong enough to reveal distant details, yet avoids the image shake experienced on higher-powered optics. If you're out at dawn or dusk, you'll appreciate the light-gathering ability of the generous 42mm objective lens.

    8x42 Oceana Monocular is rated 4.6 out of 5 by 5.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love it Why do we love it? We love the bright clear optic from the 42mm objective lens. We love the ability to judge range using the built in graticle - it is very accurate with practise and by knowing the physical dimensions of some common objects such as the length of the car, the height of a human. We love the built in compass useful for passing to someone else with a bearing so they can see what you are looking at. One small thing was the focus ring was initially a bit stiff but its becoming less stiff with use.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent Value with Superb service! This is a great product which is easy to handle and use on our Jet ski. We wanted a waterproof, compact monocular to get a quick reckoning on bearing and distance whilst touring Queensland's fantastic islands and waterways and the Celestron Oceana does the job perfectly! As always B&H Video provide excellent product information on website and SUPERB international service with very reasonable shipping costs. Thanks B&H Rob Brisbane Australia

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great for land navigation It’s very easy to get accurate bearings for map work because the scale is easy to read, your view is magnified, and the object-compass-eye are all lined up compared to using a compass at waist level. The optics are very good to my not so knowledgeable eyes. Adjusting the focus ring  is not as smooth as my other binoculars, though. Don’t forget to correct for declination. Overall, it’s much easier to use the Oceana Monocular for measuring bearings with my older eyes compared to a standard baseplate compass.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from 'A quality product at a reasonably price' I use this monocular when I don't want the bulk of binoculars. It has the feel and heft of a well made item. Easily fits in most pockets. I appreciate the caps provided that help keep the optics clear. I haven't had the need to estimate distances with this item so I can't comment on its accuracy. The view provided is bright and clear once you adjust the diopter to your eye.

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Decent glass This is an OK $70 optic. It will never resolve like the top-end gear, but its sufficient. The compass is a plus. I havent used it yet for land navigation and the opportunity to compare its accuracy to a real magnetic compass and a topo map, but it appears capable of providing a bearing in the general direction of your objective. The vertical and horizontal reticles have some value but dont confuse them with a laser rangefinder. They assist in determining range or size, but you need one of the values to compute the other. The rubber lens covers are a waste of time, they dont stay in place, The neck strap is attached to a smaller line attached to an lens cover. Doesnt make sense. Solution: remove and dispose of the lens covers and cut the neck strap off the smaller line and just attach it solo to the body. At 8x42, it is not small or light, but you know that when you buy it.
