MinoxMinox MS 8x25 Macroscope miniature telescope : Highly innovative and showing all the classic technical capabilities of the Minox company is the best way to describe the Minox Macroscope. 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 Macroscope 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. Enter the world of macro with a highly portable and compact mini-telescope!
Minox MS 8x25 Macroscope miniature telescopeMinox MS 8x25 - Volkswagen-Design
The short and compact telescope body, designed by Volkswagen-Design, is destined to meet many other demands put on it also. With a field of view of more than 114 m, the compact Minox Macroscope is just at home being used as a 'normal' telescope, just as you would a full sized ‘scope. Viewing a historical tower on a sight-seeing trip or big events in a stadium or concert hall, the new compact Macroscope is ideal. It also has the added advantage of being handy and easy to use for partially sighted people.

Minox Macroscope - Quick Close Focus
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. Designing the Macroscope, Minox engineers combined past know how and the latest technology as used in the new Minox 'High Grade' range of binoculars. For example, the Quick Close Focus (QCF), a new type of focussing mechanism which allows better and more accurate focussing. With just a single turn of less than 360° of the focussing ring on the lens it is possible to adjust the mini telescope to any setting from close-up to infinite.

Minox Macroscope waterproof
Despite its lightweight, around 150 grams, the Macroscope features tough rubber armouring to protect against everyday wear and tear and along with a special sealing technique is internally purged with special Argon gas to not only minimise internal corrosion and prevent internal fogging during quick temperature or humidity changes, it also ensures that it remains waterproof in bad weather conditions and even in water down to 5 metres. For those who wear spectacles, the full field of view is visible due to the extended exit pupil. The twist-up/twist down eyecup is an important feature for both spectacle and non-spectacle wearing users. The Minox Macroscope comes complete with a stay-on-case as well as a strap.
