This monocular is perfect for my needs. Long range detection when using either a NV devise, or thermal. So much easier to scan as opposed to wielding my rifle around on the tri-pod. Thanks again Jason and Hans for the indepth info you provide on your podcasts. Decisions made easier!
I ordered this for a friend who does not have Internet access. The scanner I own is a pulsar with a 640 resolution sensor. Compared to my scanner the TM 10 -256 is nowhere nearest nice but I'm rating it five star because it is fantastic for the price point. It can detect raccoons at 100 yd and deer out to several hundred yards, identification may be a challenge, but I would rather have put my money in a good scope and do the identification using the scope. If I didn't already have the pulsar scanner, I would not pay the thousands of dollars that they cost, I would purchase one of these scanners.
Eyes in the dark
This little monocular is perfect small thermal. Works well for what it was designed to do. Let you know something is there without having to stand on rifle all night.
It’s a great little monocular for scanning with a wide field of view for the price. It works great for walking into a stand and picking up targets at several hundred yards that you can then identify with your scope.
