The Minox Minoscope (Macroscope) is a discrete mini telescope with a Volkswagen design. It features fast focus and focuses up to 35cm close when required.
The metal body of the "Black Edition" has a black anodized finish to prevent light reflections, which is vital when the user wishes to remain as neutral as possible to the surrounding conditions. This design is highly advantageous for nature enthusiasts, hunters, police/law enforcement, military, security services, and anyone else desiring covert operation.
Ideal for use when travelling, leisure, buildings or in the theatre, sporting activities and even as an aid for people with a visual handicap. Since its launch, this extremely compact and lightweight mini-telescope has become a favourite of both hunters and butterfly or dragonfly watchers who rate it very highly as a vital piece of equipment when out in the field.
The extremely compact design of the MS 8x25 "Black Edition" has been made technically possible through the use of porro prisms, which also helps to promote high light transmission. The lens diameter of 25mm, the innovative optical system and a top quality multiple coating guarantee images with high contrast and natural colour rendition, even in difficult light conditions. With the convenient and fast Quick Close Focus (QCF) patented by MINOX, the Macroscope MS 8x25 "Black Edition" can adjust from close focus to infinity simply by turning the focussing wheel by 360°.
The Minox Minoscope is watertight to a depth of five meters. Filled with high quality argon gas, the inside of the macroscope is protected against both corrosion and fogging of the glass-air surfaces, even during severe temperature fluctuations. Eyeglass wearers will appreciate the extended eye relief which allows them to enjoy the full field of view even with their glasses on. A rotating eyecup provides easy adjustment to the user's individual requirements.
