Leica Monovid 8x20mm Monocular (Black)

Leica Monovid 820 Monocular

Never miss anything far away again with the Leica Monovid 8x20 Monocular from Focus Camera. This monocular is small and lightweight, meaning that you can carry it anywhere you may need an ocular boost. The Leica Monovid is ideal for bird watching, sightseeing, watching plays from afar or examining small things up close. It works well as a mini telescope and converts to a macroscope with the close-up lens attachment as well as being a fantastic monocular.

Small, Portable and Powerful

The 8x magnification system of the Leica Monovid Monocular features a roof prism and lenses with high durable coating and AquaDura coating. The aluminum housing is waterproof up to 5 meters and is filled with nitrogen to prevent fogging. It also features internal focusing with a central focusing knob and the eyepiece is built to be comfortable to eyeglass wearers. At less than 4 inches long and weighing only 4 ounces, this monocular is ultra-portable and makes the ideal travel companion. Carry it in the included leather carry case to your next destination.
