Lots of fun. Easily the best closeup scope. I use it for museums, antique store cases, guts of computers and cars, bugs, etc. The image seems very "real". Big focus wheel is easy to use. Standard photo mount fitting. Very bright images. The only negatives are cost (but worth it if you want vivid closeups) and slight distortion for distant views, but I doubt most people will notice.

This thing is a blast! The 18-inch close focus ability of this scope opens up a whole new arena of applications beyond a traditional monocular; not only can you take a closer look at distant objects, but also experience things like tide pools, insects, and museums like you've never seen them before. At 7x, it is easy to get a stable image, and the integrated tripod mount makes extended viewing a pleasure. The large focus wheel is intuitive, and I've noticed none of the issues reported by other users in terms of focusing problems. The eyeguard has a simple twist mechanism that makes it a breeze to accommodate users with eyeglasses. Perhaps the biggest issue I have with this scope is that it does not include any sort of lens cap. It does come with a soft carying case that protects it from some damage, but it limits your options considerably when packing for a hike. Also, this scope is pretty bulky for a monocular, and it'll eat up some pack space to lug arouund this scope and it's all-but-essential ...

This macro scope exceeded all my expectation. Great value and a great product. I only wish I had bought it sooner so I could have used it on my trip to the Galapagos in April

Pros:  Close focus, pretty good optics, portability
Cons:  Sloppy focusing, no lens caps
Would recommend:  yes

Disappointed with focusing. Not very precise and you need to focus back & forth until precis focus is obtained. Also, lens caps would be appreciated. Lenses can easily be scratched or damaged without caps.

Author: boongoh (verified customer) , I bought the Minox 8x25 and also the Brunton 7x40 from you end of last year., from Seattle, WA on Jan 21, 2008
Pros:  Great in low-light; close-focusing useful in museums and aquariums; tripod collar easily turns it into spotting scope for rifle or archery range; a pleasure to hold and use!
Cons:  Not waterproof at all. As heavy as most 8x25 binoculars. Focusing knob has some play. Pouch is flimsy.
Would recommend:  yes

This very large monocular is great for day trips to the country or in the city. The relatively large 40mm objective lens makes it so much more useful at dawn and dusk; and also makes it easier to track fast-moving subjects. Close-focusing feature makes it useful for viewing small objects as well. I find myself putting this scope into my satchel for day trips far more often than my 8x25 binocular!
