Excerpt: I purchased this scope as a compact unit for an upcomimg bacpack hunting trip. It's compact size and low weight were the key considerations. While it is not fair to compare this scope to a much bigger offering from Swaro or Zeiss or the like, it is a great option for the hunter who needs a spotting...
Excerpt: The Minox MD 50 is extremely compact and easy to carry. The optics are fairly sharp, The body is very solid and has a quality feel to it. I use it to look at birds, when my Olympus 10x42 binoculars do not show enough detail.As with any scope, a tripod or a good monopod is needed to avoid blurring of...
Excerpt: This scope was bought to carry at times when I didn't want to carry my big 95mm spotting scope. I was very pleased with my first view through it. The images are brighter and sharper than I had imagined they would be. It's a nice compact package.
Excerpt: Great compact scope overall. I was torn between this and its brother the MD50 (straight thru)as the near focus distance for the MD50W is 30feet while the MD50 is 16 feet, but chose the "W" for the angled eyepiece. WE (me and the Mrs) use it for birding and digiscoping mostly at lower powers.
Pros: Great optics, Lightweight Portable, Super Compact
Excerpt: I bought this scope to replace my old 20-60x60 spotting scope kept in my Archery case, the old scope took up too much room. The Minox 50 is so small and light, it fits perfect. I was suprised at the clarity of image, much better than what i am used to, its the perfect archery scope for me.
Pros: Bright Eyepiece, Good Colour Rendition, Very light
Excerpt: Whilst I haven't had this product for long, it would seem that it is going to be an excellent purchase. The disadvantage of having a fixed position for the eye piece is outweighed by the advantage of the small size of the scope.
Excerpt: I was looking for a compact spotter for backpack hunting trips and this one is perfect. Clarity is awesome. Size and weight makes for great portability. The focus ring is a little stiff but it does the job just fine. For the price you really can't go wrong.
Excerpt: Have only been hunting once since buying this spotting scope.Saw what I thought was a small mob of pigs about 6-7oo yards away.My 9x rifle scope made them out to be black dots still thinking they were pigs I got the spotting scope out and soon saw that it was a small group of Turkeys.Saved a lot of...
Excerpt: Bought the MD-50 as an alternative to taking a full sized spotting scope for hunting. It takes up a lot less room in the pack, but the best feature is the weight savings. It is also very sharp for it's small size. Overall a great product.
