Birds AND Bees
 
First time I took it into the field I was at a small shallow pond, and the water insects were fascinating. Next time, there were these beehives with the covers missing. WOW! When there are no insects, they do just fine on birds and whatever else you need to look at. The optics are very good so while they're not _top_ quality roof prism, they're fine in the real world. Mount it on a hiking staff using the camera mount ring. Hiker naturalist heaven.Bulk/weight factor - a bit bigger tha...

Amazing!
 
This is an amazing little piece of optical machinery. If you're the curious type, the Brunton Macroscope will bring you hours of enjoyment looking at spiders, birds, ant colonies, flowers, mountains, etc. without getting so close as to scare off nature/scorch something--the way a magnifying glass does. (I also think it would be useful for detail studies at a museum--looking at dinosaur bones or Impressionist paintings.)Weighing in at just 13.5oz and well balanced, the Macroscope is e...

Quality Instrument, Larger than Expected
 
One problem with ordering on the internet is that it is difficult to visualize the size or quality of an item from a photo or written description.This is a fine quality scope but larger than I expected it to be. The tripod mount is great and the focus knob is fast and easy to use. I wish that Brunton would have included lens caps to protect the optics. It is a nice light weight scope for birding but a bit too big for backpacking or hiking. I purchase the Vortex Solo for my hiking nee...

A Great Backyard Bird Watcher too!
 
Everything said about this Macroscope is true ~ it is an amazing scope. Compared to other options, including monoculars and spotting scopes, this 7x power scope excels in close-up (18") focus ability plus it has a wide field-of-view which makes it easier to follow moving targets. Very user friendly.My first encounter with the Macroscope was at Outer Banks Birdwatchers in Nags Head, NC where they had the scope mounted onto a Polecat hiking stick, and leaned near a window for everyon...

Brunton Macroscope
 
Easy to use. Excellent optics. Long focus range - closeup to infinity. So good I wish that there was some sort of camera adapter to fit to a digital camera. It does need end-caps (both ends), and the case should be snugger to allow safe wearing on a belt or to clip to a backpack. But it is a great device. Highly recommend it, especially to someone who is uncomfortable using binoculars.

Brunton macroscope
 
It is not what I expected. It is quite a bit heavier than I thought and is very difficult to hold still. I would return it if that is possible.

Macroscope - Brunton
 
When I first heard a radio advertisement for this devise, I was intrigued. I finally purchased one and absolutely love it. Binoculars can be hard for me to use, but this macroscope is wonderful and everything appears amazingly crisp - both at a distance, and close up. I am shocked at how much I miss with my normal day to day vision of life. I cannot wait to take it up to our property to view the wildlife up close and personal.

Versatile Monocular
 
Brunton's Macroscope is a good value for the $99.00 price I payed for the instrument.I bought it to have a lightweight alternative to binoculars for use in a variety ofsettings. I was especially interested in having a monocular that could focus at veryclose objects (Macroscope focuses at objects as close as 18 inches), as I live in theforest in the Pocono mountains in PA, and all sorts of critters show up on my deck whowill move away if I attempt to get any cl...
