    Carson MagniScope reviews

    MagniScope (3x/8x/30x) is rated 4.3 out of 5 by 8.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best at 30x, no significant weaknesses 3X Magnifier: There is a focus ring at the top which you can adjust for a flat, crisp image. The clear stand should be flared outward to 2.25 ID from its present 1.53 ID so that it does not appear in the field of view. 30X Magnifier: It's at its best in this difficult application. Both the eyepiece focus ring and objective focus ring can be used. Try a small LED flashlight for illumination. This will reveal the hairs on insect faces and the eye facets. 8X Telescope: This mode offers a good image, better than another 8x telescope that I had in the drawer. Overall this is a good buy with no significant weaknesses and great at 30x.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Pretty good magnification I've not used this in the field as a microscope yet but it appears to work well on a desk as long as it's used under a good light source. Having two separate areas for focusing was a bit confusing at first but once that was understood it works well. You will likely need one hand to operate and hold the scope but can manipulate the subject with forceps using the other hand through the slot at the bottom. Also consider some sort of lighting source (perhaps a flashlight?) unless you will be in bright enough light to see your subject at high mag. Also make sure that your subject is small enough to fit inside the lower cup of the device.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from See what the field book talks about! I use this product for snow science evaluation. Most books suggest a 10x lupe but with this MagniScope you can really see in detail what is going on. Used a friends last year and can't wait for the snow to fly this year.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Works well I use it as a microscope with motion picture film to evaluate focus, grain and exposure. Very sharp and 30x magnification is perfect. A light table is needed for such work however. The monocular works great too.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Excellent magnifier for close work Purchased this item as an aid in scoring NRA Conventional pistol targets. It provides excellent magnification of shot holes to scoring rings for accurate scoring as an NRA Referee.
