LENSES & LENS CLEANERS

Full Page Magnifying Sheet

Flat plastic Fresnel lens. This flexible magnifier is 7-1/4" x 10-1/4" and only about a millimeter thick. It is great when you need to scan a list or to look for something in a directory. You can see most of the page without moving the magnifier. Only about 1.5 power, but that can make a huge visual difference. The quality is not high, but neither is the price.

Look At This!

Big glass lens, measures 109mm (4.29”) dia, with a 255mm (approx 10”) focal length. No use for a lens? It makes a lovely desktop magnifier, plus it’s convex on both sides which makes it very satisfying to spin during introspective moments.

Achromatic Lens

This achromatic doublet lens (them what won't distort color or shape any more than they absolutely have to) is in an oval metal mount with a small mounting hole opposite a set of prongs. Originally a projector lens of some sort, it measures 20mm dia (approx 3/4") with a 47mm (approx 1-7/8") focal length. Despite the fact that you could mount it in its current mounting using the mounting hole, we suspect you're just going to use it as a nice 5X loupe.

Protective Lens

One of those clear plastic jobs that goes over an automotive light or some such. It provides a bit of focusing to strengthen the beam and some protection, but isn't really an optical element. This one is 2-7/8" sq. x 9/16" thick. Actually, the plastic is only about 1/8" thick, but there is a rim to the rear which gives it overall depth. Good protection for outdoor lights. Could be set in the outhouse door to admit distorted light. Or flip it over and serve nuts in it.
