    Our ADV bikes take us to some amazing places with great views. But, have you ever wanted to get a bit more detail of the surrounding area? Have you seen an interesting object in the distance that needed further investigation? Me too, and that is why I picked up the Zeiss 10x25. Not only is it almost unnoticeable in my tank bag, but it also carries nicely in any pocket. This little guy performs similar to binocular counterparts without all the bulk and weight.

    Here are a few phone images to give an idea of the magnification.

    I have Zeiss 10x25 binoculars that I take sometimes but, am thinking of getting the mono you have for even more pocketability.

    I have the smaller 5x10 Miniquick version, handy little thing about the size of white board marker - I EDC it. Has enough eye relief for use with eyeglasses. Feels like a Cracker Jacks box toy, but the optics/clarity are really well done. Here's an old set of pics:
