From Vanguard: You never know when you’re going to need to get closer to the action, such as an unexpected sighting on a dog walk or on trip to the shops. Even when you can plan a trip, such as a visit to a sporting event or concert, the most compact binoculars can be difficult to slip into your pocket.

Ultra-Portable: Weighing just 325g and measuring a fraction over 15cm long, the new VEO HD2 1042M Monocular is incredibly easy to carry with you wherever you go. It also comes with a neck strap and a pouch that attaches to your belt, giving you choices on the most comfortable way to carry it on that trip.

Clear Image: Despite the portability, this monocular allows you to get 10x closer to the action with a bright, clear image delivered through a 42mm objective lens. To maximise clarity, even in low light conditions, the VEO HD2 1042M includes HOYA Extra Low Dispersion (ED) Glass and a BaK4 roof prism, all treated with Vanguard’s Multi-Guard Coatings. Focusing is through a single, textured focus wheel that allows you to maintain focus on moving objects with ease, even wearing gloves. It also has a 1/4” thread that allows it to be attached to a monopod for additional stability.

Tough: Designed for use outdoors, the monocular is waterproof and fog proof, with a thick rubber armour to protect it if dropped. It also includes an eyepiece cover and objective lens cover to protect the glass from scratches when stored.

Digiscoping Kit: In addition to the monocular, the kit includes a PA-60 Smartphone Digiscope Adaptor that slots onto the monocular’s eyepiece, for smartphones up to 3.4”/87mm wide. With different smartphones having their camera lens in different spots, and even multiple lenses, the PA-60 has an adjustable eyepiece that can be tailored to your chosen camera lens. To minimise the risk of movement when you take your photo, there is also a Bluetooth Remote Control that can be used with IOS and Android phones.

So if you’re looking for a compact and portable solution to get closer to the action wherever you go, then check out the VEO HD2 1042M Monocular with Digiscoping Kit and #MakeUpYourOwnMind
