Destined to be chosen as an ideal take-along optic for anyone traveling light - the Silverline 8x20 BCA Monocular from Leica will delight all-sorts of viewing enthusiasts with style, elegance, a remarkable level of optical performance and its lightweight aluminum housing.

Sporting 8x magnification, the Silverline 8x20 Monocular's optical system features a high-grade roof prism, AquaDura lens coatings, and nitrogen fill for clarity in any climate - it's fully fogproof and watertight to a depth of 5.0 m/16.5'.

Depending upon your point of view - The Monovid can be used as a mini-telescope, 1/2 a binocular, or a macroscope. It's light, small, stealthy, and quite luxurious - whether you're scoping a performer on stage, glassing the tree line for the ultimate bird, or investigating the intricate subtleties of a Nautilus shell - you'll be glad you have it so easily accessible.

Inside the Monovid's elegant leather carry case there's a special pocket for a very special attachment - the close-up lens. Installing this accessory onto the monocular allows viewers to achieve 8x magnification at distances as close as 9.8"/ 25 cm - this macro-effect viewing is excellent for observing the finest details that are often impossible to see through larger optics.

    Silverline 8x20 BCA Monocular is rated 4.5 out of 5 by 2.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent Very sharp view. I own both this monocular and the Zeiss 6x18 and really like them both for different reasons. The Leica wins on slightly sharper view with higher magnification and water proofness. The close up lens works well but is a bit awkward to attach. The supplied case is somewhat bulky. If you don't need the the close up lens get the Buttler O2A scope cap and leave the case at home. The Zeiss wins on ability to focus to one foot and small size. Both are excellent- I like to carry them both.
