    Barska AA12134 reviews

    10-25x42 Battalion Monocular is rated 1.0 out of 5 by 1.
    Rated 1 out of 5 by from A poor concept, poorly executed I picked this up to explore the concept of a monocular (especially a higher-magnification monocular) as an adjunct to lower-magnification binocular. I've concluded pretty quickly that a proper spotting-scope, tripod mounted, might be worthwhile, but this device is not. And that's whether used hand-held, with a monopod or with a tripod. It is very hard to hold steady, even at lowest magnification. Use on a monopod is better - but not by much and not at higher magnifications where the view disappears into a blur of distortions (most prominently, a blue haze of chromatic aberration). On a tripod, it is hard to use as focus changes with zoom (meaning it forever needs to be fussed with) and the distortions aren't improved by being more steadily observed. I think zoom optics just aren't up to it in this kind of device (and are especially bad in this particular device). Binoculars, including at the same price-point, would be far better in any hand-held application I can think of, and a proper (and more expensive) scope would be preferable in any other.
