Artscope 6x16mm Monocular by Vixen Optics

Presenting the Vixen Artscope 6x16mm Monocular - a precision-crafted instrument tailored for meticulous observations of artworks and crafts.

Boasting an impressively short 9.8" (25cm) close focus distance and an expansive 9.3° angle of view, this monocular is engineered to capture even the finest details.

Its BK7 roof prism, coupled with anti-reflection fully multi-coated optics, ensures optimal light transmission, resulting in vivid, well-defined, and high-contrast visuals.

Encased in robust aluminum, the monocular features a red anodized finish that safeguards against corrosion and scratches.

The inclusion of a textured rubber focus collar enhances grip and maneuverability, while the fold-down rubber eyecup guarantees comfort during extended use with or without eyewear.

Manufactured in Japan, the Artscope arrives complete with a protective case and a convenient carrying strap.

To further extend its utility, combine this monocular with Vixen's separately available Multi Monocular Microscope Stand for magnification purposes.



  • 6x Magnification: The 6x magnification of the monocular brings subjects six times closer than the naked eye, enabling you to examine intricate details of artwork and crafts with remarkable clarity. This feature allows you to appreciate the finer nuances that might go unnoticed from a distance.
  • 16mm Objective Lenses: The 16mm objective lenses gather ample light, enhancing the brightness and clarity of the observed images. This ensures that you can enjoy a vibrant and clear view of artworks, even in varying lighting conditions.
  • Reveals Details of Artwork and Crafts: The combination of the 6x magnification and the 16mm objective lenses makes the monocular an ideal tool for revealing intricate details in artwork and crafts. This feature enables you to explore textures, brushstrokes, and minute elements that contribute to the artist's intent.
  • Fully Coated Optics: The fully coated optics improve light transmission, reduce glare, and enhance color fidelity. This results in a more vivid and accurate representation of the colors and textures present in the artwork, offering a true-to-life viewing experience.
  • Ribbed Rubber Focus Collar: The ribbed rubber focus collar provides a tactile and ergonomic grip for precise focusing adjustments. This feature ensures that you can swiftly and accurately focus on specific areas of interest within the artwork.
  • Fold-Down Rubber Eyecup: The fold-down rubber eyecup enhances viewing comfort by accommodating users with or without eyeglasses. It prevents stray light from entering the viewing area and helps maintain a clear image, whether you're using the monocular with or without corrective lenses.
  • BK7 Roof Prism: The BK7 roof prism design contributes to the compact and streamlined form of the monocular. This design choice ensures that the monocular remains lightweight and easy to carry, making it a convenient companion during museum visits.
  • Exceptionally Short 7.9" Close Focus: With an exceptionally short close focus distance of 7.9 inches, you can explore even the tiniest details of artwork and crafts from an impressively close range. This feature allows you to scrutinize individual brushstrokes, textures, and elements that contribute to the overall composition.
  • Anodized Aluminum Housing: The anodized aluminum housing provides durability while maintaining a sleek and modern appearance. This robust construction protects the internal optics, ensuring the longevity of the monocular even with regular use.
  • Made in Japan: The "Made in Japan" label is synonymous with precision craftsmanship and superior quality. This monocular's origin assures users that they are investing in a product built to high standards of performance and reliability.
  • Included Accessories: The package comes with a custom carrying case for easy portability and a neck strap for added convenience during transportation. Moreover, users benefit from a limited 1-2 year warranty, ensuring assurance and support for their astronomical endeavors.
