Destined to be chosen as an ideal take-along optic for anyone traveling light – the Monovid 8×20 Monocular from Leica will delight all-sorts of viewing enthusiasts with style, elegance, and a remarkable level of optical performance.

Sporting 8.0x magnification, the Monovid’s optical system features a high-grade roof prism, AquaDura lens coatings, and nitrogen purging for clarity in any climate – it’s fully fogproof and submersible to a depth of 5.0 m/16′.

Depending upon your point of view – The Monovid can be used as a mini-telescope, 1/2 a binocular, or a macroscope. Its light, small, stealthy, and quite luxurious – whether you’re scoping a performer on stage, glassing the treeline for the Lord God bird, or investigating the intricate subtleties of a Nautilus shell – you’ll be glad you didn’t leave home without it.

Inside the Monovid’s elegant leather carry case there’s a special pocket for a very special attachment – the close-up lens. Installing this accessory onto the monocular allows viewers to achieve 8x magnification at distances as close as 9.8″/ 25 cm – this macro-effect viewing is excellent for observing the finest details that are often impossible to see through larger optics.
