Celestron 71215 overview

  • 1Description

Designed to be used outdoors in challenging conditions, the Celestron 8x42 Cavalry Monocular with Compass is equipped with premium optical components as well as a range-finding reticle and a compass. It will serve the needs of hunters, boaters, and law enforcement and military personnel, and is a very useful compact optic for home and recreational use. BAK4 prism glass and fully multi-coated optics provide a highly efficient light path for a bright, sharp image. Waterproof and nitrogen-purged to prevent internal fogging, the Cavalry is covered with a durable rubber armor, offering a secure and comfortable grip while protecting the housing.

The 8x magnification pulls in distant details while providing a stable image. Combined with the large, light-gathering, 42mm objective lens, the monocular takes in a generous 367' field of view at 1000 yards. The reticle can be used to gauge the size of objects and their distance, and the 6400-mil compass shows the direction to a target. A fold-down rubber eyecup and long 18mm eye relief accommodate users who wear eyeglasses.

    Celestron 71215 reviews

    8x42 Cavalry Monocular with Compass is rated 5.0 out of 5 by 1.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent features for the price. I use this monocular for telephoto camera picture acquisition shots. It works great and the compass allows me to share observations with friends nearby while I grab the camera . It also has a ranging reticle to allow distance estimations. I haven't noticed any eye fatigue from extended use either. For the price, not bad. The ITAR designation is a little ridiculous, since this was made in China.
