I’m visually impaired and tend to need to use a monocular to see almost anything from items on the shelves in a store to menus in take out places. Basically I use it dozens of times a day every day. Sadly my old go to Vanguard telescopes seem to be no longer being manufactured. It’s a shame since other than the rubber thing that folds up and down around the eye piece wearing out those things have been awesome for me.
My old trusty Vanguard DM 8250 telescope finally has the rubber eye cup thing tearing to a point that its becoming harder to see now. These are a mid priced monocular but have worked really well for me. The best one I ever had was the old specwell one I used throughout high school. Eventually it wore out after I’d say 8-10 years of daily use. After that I found another one online and ordered it.
This is a little annoying thing that happened to me this past Saturday. It begins with my girlfriend and I going to Old Navy in Lancaster because she wanted to check it out and I did too. I took a quick look but nothing really interested me but she was finding clothes for her so she kept looking and had to go try them on. I decided to go wait in the car.
