      Easy to focus - unlike binoculars this is comfortable for use by people that wear eyeglasses or experience a tremble in their hand.

        Comments about Brunton MacroScope 7x40 Close Focus Monocular:

        I wanted full size optical performance in something that would fit in my camera bag. It's goos on both counts.

        The eye relief is very generous. Even with sunglasses over my regular glasses I get nearly a full view. Very comfortable viewing with glasses.

        The sharpness and clarity is surprisingly good.
        It comes close to some of my very expensive binocs. For the money it's amazing.

        Because of the huge focal range the focus is a little touchy but it's OK. Just requires a little more care. The large knob helps.

        The close focus can be a lot of fun for looking at spiders etc. at close range. The end is threaded like a camera lens so I think you could add the right size close up lens and focus even closer... like a low power microscope.

        Anyhow, this is a very nice optic for the money.

          Comments about Brunton MacroScope 7x40 Close Focus Monocular:

          I need an attachnet to screw into the tripod to hang arround my neck. The storage case should have small clips sewed on the sides to attatch another adjustable strap to carry over my neck or shoulder.

          Comments about Brunton MacroScope 7x40 Close Focus Monocular:

          The optics are made in Japan and then sealed into the macroscope framing within a nitrogen atmosphere. It has a good storage range from freezing to heating at 110 F. It also has a real nice storage case that is easy to open.

          Best Uses

          • Fishing

          Comments about Brunton MacroScope 7x40 Close Focus Monocular:

          This monocular achieves the goal of making things that are far away look bigger, and it has excellent image quality so it is easy to examine the details of whatever object you are looking at. The focus dial can bring out the detail in an object whether it is two feet or a hundred feet away from you. The monocular can be used whether you are wearing glasses (in my case sunglasses) or using your naked eye - the extending eyepiece gives you that perfect circle instead of the weird oval.

          I intend to use the monocular for fishing for trout in New Zealand. I am certain that it will make spotting the fish and what they are feeding on a lot easier and much more stealthy. The only drawback to the monocular is that it is bigger and heavier than I imagined, and it's not going to fit very well into my vest. I would like a neckband for it so that I could carry it around like a pair of binoculars. The upshot to the weight is that it seems very sturdy (though I haven't dropped them to find out!). Overall I have found this macroscope to be of excellent quality and I am glad that I didn't go with a cheaper option.
