From Chris in California:
Absolutely the most useful, highest quality, compact observing tool I have every had the joy of looking through. Top notch Leica quality. Crystal clear. Beautifully and ruggedly crafted. Includes an incredibly functional carrying case. I find close focus attachment to be an unexpected joy. Now on my hikes all of the insect world is also available for observation. I have found that it is even possible to digiscope through this with an ultra compact camera. Originally I got this item because I was tired of lugging binos around. This is so small that I even occasionally include it in my computer case when on business travel. only down side is cost but it would seem in this case you really do get what you pay for.
