        My wife got me this for Christmas years ago and I have been using it ever since. It is easy to use and I have yet to find any evidence that it is not absolutely accurate. And it's not for lack of challenging its accuracy.

          Shame on Bestwell-Horrible workmanship

            Comments about Bestwell Microsight 25x Grain Focusing Aid:

            I bought three of these to replace broken one in our darkroom. These things are trash right out of the box. Excess glue was on two of them around the eye piece so we had to clean all the glue off to use them. The mirror was detached on one right out of the box and had to be reglued onto the base. I want to buy American made products but the experience we have had in the last year worried me about the state of the US manufacturing standards-We ordered 10 Beseller 4 blade easels and most of them had problems right out of the box. Shame, shame, shame.

            In class we have a lot of different focusers, this is the only one I will use. It's the easiest way to see if the print will be sharp.

              It takes the guess work out of focusing.
              No need to strain your eyes to ensure proper focus while enlarging.
