    Nikon Monarch HG 10x42 blackouts

    Hello, I recently bought this bino and I am having some problems when I look at the edges of the image. I haven't had roof binoculars in the past so I don't know how they are supposed to work and what to expect. I think I have set the IPD well and I can see the whole field when looking at the...

    Monarch HG 8x30 vs 8x42 ?

    I own the Monarch HG 10x42 and love it. Want to buy one more pair of HG's to complement the 10x42 Headed to Africa for Safari (Okavango and Chobe) with my wife and mother. None of us need glasses for binocular viewing. 8x30 is a bit lighter and smaller - the weight savings may be noticeable...
