Monoculars are mini, lightweight telescopes that use a refracting system to project an image. They magnify the images of distant objects by passing light through a series of lenses or prisms and they are designed in such a way that makes them highly compact and portable.

Monoculars' specifications are marked by the numbers in their names. The first number before the 'x' refers to their magnification whereas the number after the 'x' refers to their objective diameter in millimeters. In general, a 7 to 8x magnification is recommended as higher magnifications will increase the shakiness of the image due to hand tremors. Of course, some activities such as hunting would require higher magnifications, so do think about what you're willing to trade-off in your monocular.

The objective diameter lets us know how much light can go through the monocular, and the bigger it is, the more light can come in, and the brighter and clearer the images. For applications such as hunting and birdwatching where observation may sometimes be done during dawn, dusk, or poor light conditions, bigger apertures will be very useful and sometimes even crucial for better viewing experience.

Monoculars with rangefinders are especially useful for applications such as golfing, whereas hunting and birdwatching monoculars should be waterproofed and rugged for added durability. Be sure to look out for these specific features as they do make a difference when you're using them.
