MINOX Macroscope 8x25


This unique compact miniature telescope, measuring just 92 x 57 x 44 mm that fits neatly into the palm of the hand, gives the user not only high optical performance but an extremely close-focus distance of only 35 cm. In combination with the 8x magnification, the MINOX MS 8x25 Makroskop allows a close-up detailed study of all kinds of subjects and objects, ensuring that the user can even observe wildlife and insects in great detail at close range without disturbing them. With a field of view of more than 114 m, the compact MINOX Makroskop is just at home being used as a 'normal' telescope, just as you would a full sized ‘scope. MINOX have made this technically possible due to the extremely short and compact build of the MS 8x25 and the clever use of Porro prisms which by their very nature provide naturally high light transmission. The lens diameter of 25 mm combined with its innovative optical system and high quality multi layer coating of the optics, ensures bright images with high contrast and accurate colour rendition under all conditions. Quick Close Focus (QCF), Argon gas filling, twist-up/twist down eyecup, tough rubber armouring.
