Binoculettes

Small enough to fit into the belt-mounted black canvas carrying case (4-3/8" x 3" x 1" thick), but they open up to be plenty big for most binocular needs. These 10X25 binocs have glare-reducing coated lenses, a thin neck-strap, adjustable focus, water-resistant and easy-to-hold rubber skin, rubber eyecups and fine-tuning for the right eye.

Is That A Loupe In Your Pocket?

Why yes, it could be. Most jeweler’s loupes are too bulky to slide into a pocket, but this 5X version has a built-in tweezers and folds to a slim 2-1/4” long x 1” x 1/2” thick. Doublet lens is 15mm across in a plastic body. There’s some slight edge distortion, but for the magnifying power, size, and convenience, it’s hard to beat.

Way Better Than Cheaters

Sure, this 2X Bug View™ magnifier from Carson Kids is for…bug-viewing…by kids. That’s great if that’s what it’ll be used for—and who it’ll be used by. But as a classic hand-held spy glass, it also works for reading small print, and at 5” dia with a 4-3/4” handle, it’s easy to stuff into a drawer, or just leave out on a table or desk. But yeah, give it to a kid and go camping or walk out into a field full of insects. Either way. Great for learning, but also great for just seeing. Rim and handle are in a pleasant, understated green.

A Pyramid of Prisms

Polished glass equilateral prisms. Equilateral because each edge of the end is the same length. Thus, as all you geometry students know, each of the angles is also the same, 60 degrees. These are school grade and are fine for decorative and demonstration. They do a nice job of refracting light to produce a nice rainbow-like spectrum, but are definitely not up to instrumentation standards. Sides range from 23-25mm and the missing dimension, length, is shown below.

GROUND GLASS

One wiseacre assumed we meant any package leaving our shipping room that once had a glass object in it. That is a malicious rumor. . . Ground glass is thin plate glass, the surface of which has been physically ground or acid-etched to create a grainy, grayish, opaque surface. Use it to produce an image from a lens or lens system. Even a simple magnifier, held between the ground glass and, say, a window, will produce an image of the window scene on the ground glass. Ground glass has another magical property: it is opaque to any object viewed at a distance, but not if that object is in direct contact with the glass surface. A necessary element of your optical education. 3-1/2" x 4-3/8" x 1/16" thick.
