Designed and engineered for making detailed observations of artwork and crafts, the Vixen Optics 6x16 Artscope Monocular boasts an exceptionally short 9.8" (25cm) close focus distance with a broad 9.3° angle of view. Its BK7 roof prism and anti-reflection fully multi-coated optics ensure maximum light transmission to produce bright and clear high-contrast views. The aluminum housing has a red anodized finish for corrosion and scratch resistance, with a ribbed rubber focus collar for easy handling and a fold-down rubber eyecup to make the monocular comfortable to use with or without eyewear. The Artscope is made in Japan, and comes with a case and carrying strap. Pair the monocular with Vixen's separately sold Multi Monocular Microscope Stand to use it as a magnifier.
