Nikon Monarch 12 x 42 Magnification (power)
Binoculars are commonly described by using a pair of numbers, in this case “12×42”. The first of these numbers refers to the magnification offered by the binocular. Magnification is why most people buy a pair of binoculars. In the example above, “12x” makes things look twelve times closer. The first number used to describe binoculars always refers to their magnification.
It should be noted that everything is magnified when you look through a pair of binoculars. The higher the power, the more pronounced are shakes and movements.
Objective lens (diameter)
The second number most commonly associated with binoculars refers to the diameter of the objective lens in millimeters. When you see binoculars like the Nikon Monarch “12×42,” the “42” means that the front lenses of the binoculars are 42mm. This is good information to know, because the larger the diameter, the more light can enter into the binoculars and be focused to the eyes. This means that with the larger lenses, it will make it easier to see in dim light.
