The Minox 8x25 Macroscope is a unique miniature telescope that fits into the palm of your hand. It offers the user high optical performance and focuses extremely close. It is highly portable and useful for a multitude of activities. Whether you are a bird watcher, an insect observer, a star gazer, or a sport enthusiast, the Minox 8x25 macroscope is the best companion for you. This instrument is particularly useful for museums and art exhibitions due to its excellent macro capability.

This highly innovative, compact telescope body is designed by Volkswagen-Design. The 25mm objective lens diameter coupled with its porro prism yields to high-light transmission. The 8x25 Macroscope optics are specially multi-coated by the manufacturer to ensure bright images with high contrast and accurate color rendition. Minox incorporates the Quick Close Focus (QCF) in the 8x25 Macroscope, a highly developed focusing mechanism for accurate focusing found in their "High Grade" range binoculars. One single turn of less than 360-degrees of the telescope's focusing ring lets you achieve focus from close-up to infinity.

Compact and light-weight, this mini telescope is a little giant that features tough rubber armoring to protect it against everyday wear and tear. It is purged with Argon gas to minimize internal corrosion and prevent fogging during quick temperature changes. Also, it is waterproof to be completely submersible at depth of more than 15 feet. Its twist-up and twist-down eyecup is definitely favorable for eyeglass wearers.

          Light, bright, smaller then binocular, fits jacket pocket.
          Would be even better with bigger case and the lens cover.

            Comments about Minox 8x25 Macroscope Monocular (Black & Silver):

            This is an excellent every day carry tool. Collectors should carry this for inspection of items as the 8x and close focus are very helpful at spotting defects/fake items.
            clear sharp views outside and very compact when you don't/cant carry binoculars. I carry it always now.

            My only concern is the case/pouch it really needs to be slightly larger to protect the scope. If the scope had lens caps it wouldn't matter as much but there is an padded night vision 3x lens case avail online that fits very well that I use for it, You should too

            Definitely should be on your BUY list as a gift for you or someone else

              I purchased this wonderful device a few weeks ago and I have to say that I am impressed! Excellent optics, pocketable, lightweight but good heft in the hand, weatherproof, easy to use, and the macro capability is excellent. Highly recommended. 'Nuff said.
