          Comments about Vixen Optics 4x12 Multi Monocular:

          This macro lens from Vixen is tiny, but provides very useful amounts of magnification.

          It fits on a small pocket. I use it for looking at birds on my backyard. This is only a 4x lens, so for longer distances you will need something more powerful. The macro allows me to use it as a magnifier. With the additional stand, it becomes a 12x microscope.

          I intend to take it with me, the next time I go to a museum.

          Comments about Vixen Optics 4x12 Multi Monocular:

          I have some vision issues including wearing an eye patch over one eye. Even my good eye needs some help and this monocular has been very nice. I can see the moon sharply again and use it to see presentations at meetings. The optical quality is very good but not outstanding though fine for my needs.

              Examine barbs, tips and finish of hand made classic salmon fly hooks during construction. Comparing the hook bend on top of templates is the is very useful. This can be accomplished using the stand which allows light onto a white background.

                Comments about Vixen Optics 4x12 Multi Monocular:

                Bought this because of tiny size and close-focus, potentially for travel and visiting museums (for close inspection of small objects deep in large display cases). ALSO, considering purchase of another for my daughter in law who has multiple visual problems, including inability to use binoculars (her eyes don't align properly). The central image quality is very good, but the periphery is obviously fuzzy. However, the very wide field makes it easy to locate something, even if the IQ around the edges is poor. Found it useful and easy to use at a recently attended dance performance - more satisfactory in some repects than my 5X Canon theater glasses.
                I also purches the optional stand magnifier. This makes an excellent ~16X magnifier with a very long focal distance. The accessory lens can be unscrewed from the stand to create a hand-held magnifier. Very handy and versatile.

                  with more than 100 Dollars price, they should use BK4

                  easy to use.
