      A:

      Yes. The lanyard mount is a 1Ž4-20 thread, same as the tripod standard. You see it on the bottom and middle of the mono picture at the 90 degree corner.

      A:

      Yes - it can be mounted on a tripod but I have not found the need to. I
      have been really satisfied with my monocular; light, easy to carry and
      works pretty well.

    Comments about Orion 10x42 Waterproof Monocular:

    One must always put using a monocular in the context of one eye is used.
    The optics are fine for the price point. The coarse focus is used most of the time as the fine focus takes additional time and not really advantageous.
    I also use this as a mini scope at the house for birds on the feeder mounted on a tripod.

      Great deal on price / performance curve

      By Carl - Trail Guide for IRC

      from Orange County, CA

      About Me Avid Adventurer

      Verified Buyer

      Pros

      • Bright
      • Easy To Use
      • Light Weight Vs Binos
      • Quality Lenses
      • Strong Construction

      Cons

        Best Uses

        • Bird Watching
        • Hiking Field Glass
        • Watching Anything

        Comments about Orion 10x42 Waterproof Monocular:

        Great bang for the buck, you could spend more, or less, but if you want a bright, relatively small/light (compared to binos) field glass this is hard to beat. The ability to view things as close at 22 in. is a very nice feature. Some people complain about a monocular not being steady...um, use two hands. Also, NRS had the best price out there.

        Service and delivery comments:

        Prompt delivery, well packaged. I would purchase from NRS again.
