Yes its very very important to note that the recommended binocular is the
Monarch 7. NOT JUST nikon monarch. Their were several versions of the
Monarch previously. Monarch ATB, Monarch 5 etc. The monarch 7 is by far
the best Nikon monarch that has been produced. They come in the following
sizes: 8x30, 8x42, and 10x42.
