8 x 42 plus UTA update
About Me Hobbyist/Enthusiast
Comments about Opticron DBA Oasis S-Coat Monocular 8x42:
You can read my review of the dba monocular above, it's had quite some use since I bought it and I'm really very happy with it. Just doing a quick update as I have since purchased the 2.5 x universal tele adapter for it. It's an extra eyepiece which push fits over the original eyepiece adding about 2 inches in length and turns the monocular into a mini 20x telescope. In all honesty I can say I wasn't expecting the image it produced to be as good as it is,, it really gives the monocular some versatility as well. Only downside of this combination is exit pupil is only 2.1 so daytime use only, plus it's pushing the price up to around four hundred pounds for both bits and lots of people aren't keen on using just one eye they tend to do a Popeye face when looking through it. Me personally I love it.P.s long eye relief with the UTA also
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

Well worth the money
The dba is beautifully made and the image quality is superb. The main reason I wanted a monocular was size, I already own a much cheaper one, plus I have some decent bins and I wanted the pocketability of the monocular with the image quality of the bins,the dba monocular easily fills this space.The best feature for me is, as a spectacle wearer, the image viewed is the same with specs on as specs off, just twist down the eyecup.Bear in mind though, this isn't a tiny little tube, the eyepiece is over 21 mm diameter, bigger than the objective lens on lots of monoculars, if you stuck two side by side,you'd have a full size pair of roof prisms, but this is why the image is so good. Exceptional.
