Am looking to buy a pair of 10x binoculars probably.

But wondering if a monocular might be cheaper - and accomplish the same thing?

I mainly use my existing pair of 4x binoculars to look at seed crops in trees - acorns, cones, etc.

Also, I wear glasses to see things far away.

Just looking for any thoughts on switching to a monocular instead.

I like a good compact size 10x set of binoculars. I tried a monocular before and had a very hard time finding objects with it. At least for me with binoculars it was easy to line up your target but with a monocular I was searching all around trying to find what I was looking at.

That makes sense, thanks; could see how that might be a problem.

It is always a little odd for me using binoculars with glasses on and was hoping a monocular might be easier.

Also prefer binoculars, lining up much easier and see much more with both eyes open vs trying to periscope one eye. Harder for me to keep a monocular still unless on a tripod, which I use at shooting ranges. I did successfully use a monocular on a hunt once, and it worked as intended, but still not that easy.
