Leica Monovid 8x20 Waterproof Monocular
The new Leica Monovid 8x20 Waterproof Monocular offers outstanding optical performance and, thanks to its compact form of only 105x35mm, is ideal suited to the needs of bird and butterfly watchers, hunters, hikers, opera and concert goers and visitors to sporting events.
For the Finest of Details
The close-up lens of the Leica Monovid 8x20 Waterproof Monocular (included in the set) allows detailed study - from a close distance of a mere 10-14 inches. When combined with its 8x magnification, you're now able to view even the finest structures (via a macro effect").
An Amazing Performer
The integration of top-grade optical elements into a tough, nitrogen-filled aluminum body guarantees optimum precision and a long service life. Its nitrogen filling also ensures that it's both waterproof and fogproof. The lightweight body construction is waterproof to a depth of 5 meters, and ably protects the monocular in the roughest of outdoor conditions.
Come rain or shine, Leica Monovid owners are certain they will have the perfect view. Its extremely compact size, versatility, and weight of only 112 g (under 6 oz) makes it an ideal companion that fits in any jacket pocket - and can be right at your fingertips whenever, wherever. The Monovid 8 x 20mm Monocular by Leica is supplied with an elegant leather case with a silent magnetic fastener. The case also has a compartment specifically to keep the close-up lens in - so it is safe when not in use.
