Measured physical dimensions in inches are:
Total length: 6.875"
Maximum outside diameter: 2.250"
Outside diameter of objective end: 2.040"
Outside diameter of eyepiece end: 1.495" (grippy area)

My first impression of the Zhumell 10-25x 42 monocular is favorable. Optical clarity it's not anything special as sport optics go but the optical clarity is functional and at current market prices this scope is priced about right at U.S. $50-60. This is a very powerful little monocular that's perfect for those harsh environments where you don't want to put more expensive optics at risk. As a reference to optical quality, I was able to read a car's license plate number at a measured 275 yards. I was also able to read the print on my drivers license at 40 feet.
The objective lens optical coating is actually blue/green rather than the red shown in the promotional photo's. Colors as seen through the monocular appear correct. The focus and zoom adjustments are stiff enough to hold their settings. The focus adjustment moves smoothly but adjusting best focus at higher magnification takes patience. The rubberized outer coating feels secure in your hands. The monocular is equipped with a metal ¼ -20 threaded hole for securing it to a camera tripod or monopod. Close focus distance at 25x is less than 3 feet. Eye relief is comfortable for people who don't wear glasses but probably not fully functional for people who do wear glasses/sunglasses while looking through this monocular.

I had a romantic idea about monoculars - you know, the swarthy sea captain peering through the lens, "land ho!" and all that. I also thought these would be a lot smaller to pack and carry than binoculars. And they are, but the image is so less satisfying than binoculars. Also, at the upper magnification the viewing size is greatly reduced. Unless you only want to take a quick view for getting your bearings, stick to binoculars.

        The product was delivered on schedule and I didn't have to wait longer than a reasonable amount if time.
        The product came with no lens covers. It never stated that they would be included but the literature included, recommends always using them to protect against damage. During the process of focusing the product there is a high spot that consistently causes the process of focusing to stop or slow down.
        I am happy with the product. I will purchase lens covers and I expect the little high spot while focusing will work itself out.

          • Needs Tripod Over 15x

          • Astronomy
          • Terrestrial Viewing

          Comments about Zhumell 10-25x42 Waterproof Zoom Monocular:

          This monocular is solidly built, easy to focus and zoom. Unfortunately, it's not fully multicoated, but at least the field lens and eye lens are, although it's not the modern broadband multicoating. For terrestrial views, it's best to have a monopod or tripod, or at a minimum, lean against something to have a steady view at anything over 15X. Images are bright, though not as bright as my 8x42 Zhumnell Novas. The field of view is good, about 5.7°, at 10X. At 25X you have to move your head to see the entire field, and it's about 4.5°, very good for a zoom. In bright sunlight, illuminatd shiny objects have a dark blue edge, everywhere in the field, while the moon showed a very thin light yellow band on one edge. Stars can be focused to a sharp point, and there appears to be no rectilinear distortion, as lines appear straigt edge-to-edge. Because there have been nightime clouds, I haven't been able to view objects like the Great Nebula in Orion. The range of focus is amazing. But there is glare when something bright is near the field of view. While the owner's manual recommends storing the monocular with lens caps, none are provided. A standard 2" lens cap fits the field lens, and I have found another that fits the eye lens. I'd recommmend the following improvements: 1. Include lens caps; 2. phase-coat the roof prisms; 3. Use modern broadband coatings to fully multicoat all lenses and prisms; and 4. blacken the lens edges.
          All in all, this is an excellent value, but I'm happy it can be mounted on a tripod.

                I bought this for watching some boat races. works well, bright optics. At 25 power a little hard to hold by hand so I used a monopod but at lower powers holding by hand is no problem. I would by again.

                I have to admit that I am trying to view 1/4 inch numbers on the nameplate of a transformer mounted 30 ft high on a pole. I can actually determine the numbers when I carefully steady myself. The drawback is the primary focus wheel is stiff / sticky. However, the Zoom wheel is smooth and constant. I'm am going to return it for a zoom binocular with reported smooth focus wheel. I order it on 7/30, rec'd it on 8/2. Excellent FREE shipping.
