This mini-magnifying glass is the classic Sherlockian style, but in a mini size. Measures 1-1/16" dia on a 2-1/4" handle in brass and red wood (not to be confused with redwood.) Marked 6X but more likely approx 2.5-3X. Awfully cute, though, and the handle unscrews--just like the mystery always does.
You'll love this 3-draw, brass, 25x30 spyglass-style spotting scope from Celestron®. Extends to 13" and contracts to 5-3/8" with an adjustable focus at the eyepiece. Comes with a sewn-on leatheresque cover (very piratical), a polishing cloth and a much-better-than-average wooden case.
A lollapaloupeza. You get a 4-pack of acrylic eye loupes with polished aluminum housings. They're marked 2.5X, 5X, 7.5X and 10X but might run closer to 2X to 8X. Measure 1-3/8" dia x 1-1/8" tall with 7/8" dia lenses. In a plastic storage case.
For students or professionals, this Celestron® handheld digital microscope that captures still images and videos is a terrific computer accessory. Plug the USB 2.0 cable into your computer's port and take advantage of the built-in, upgraded 2mp digital camera (Up to 5mp with interpolation.), 10X to 40X and 150X magnification, and LED illumination. The 4-oz, 4-1/4" x 1-1/4" dia scope may be handheld, or slipped into its metal stand for steadier viewing. CD-ROM software includes a measurement function. Minimum requirements UVC Plug & Play with Windows XP, Vista, 7 and MAC 10.4.9 and later, CD/DVD drive, open USB port. Very cool.
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.
One of our largest double loupes. Shaped like a giant apostrophe, it measures 2" thick x 2-1/2" long x 1-3/4" wide at the widest. Has a high-low beam white LED light, plus a UV LED light, both powered by an A23 battery, included and replaceable. The 1" dia lens has a thumbwheel focus and is 10X, according to the box, but we say it's closer to 7X.
Cardboard binoculars are for observing paper lions. (Mahogany binoculars are for watching wooden performances, but we don't sell those.) These binoculars fold very nearly flat to 3" x 4" and magnify 3X through acrylic lenses. Flex them when they're unfolded and the focus adjusts somewhat. They're really made and priced for kids, are much better than they have any right to be, and can even be taken apart and used in a science fair telescope! Bonus: We'd keep some in the briefcase and glove box, we would.
Clip this little lighted scope onto your smart phone and use the phone's zoom feature to show images (and take photos) up to 30X magnification. Our Optics Guru Paul says it has no business working this well for under ten bucks. Measures 2-5/8" x 1-1/4" and comes with (3) replaceable button-cell batteries for the light.
