Philo sold under other names but I can't remember what right now. I have a little streamlined prismatic monocular they made (10x30 too like below) and it's quite good.

It's very ergonomic and has a tripod socket too.  ;)

All these are Japanese made - Philo is just one of many Japanese brands.

I also have one or two other Japanese 10x30 telescopes.

I don't recognise the names you show Uli but, as you say, they were many Japanese makes - maybe it was Greenkat or somesuch. When you speak of Myauchi do you mean Miyauchi? I have a pair of astronomy binoculars by Miyauchi (an Owlet) with interchangeable eyepieces for differing strengths and love them.

I think I'd remember seeing a SOCO as it figures in a lot of drama we watch - a Scenes of Crime Officer who gathers forensic evidence for the British police. ;)
