I would have rather ordered binoculars, but the monocular was already too expensive (I paid around $4,800!)
The box just arrived, and for that price, I’d better like them. I’m waiting for it to get dark so I can give them a try.
My other project for the day is checking with the insurance company to verify that my boat is insured for the run north from Costa Rica. There’s really not a great weather window. It is hurricane season now in the southern pacific, and the boat needs to be north before November to avoid rough weather off the west coast of the US.
