Artscope 4x12mm Monocular by Vixen Optics


Discover the Vixen Artscope 4x12mm Monocular - a masterfully crafted tool tailored for intricate examinations of art pieces and handiwork.

Engineered with precision, this monocular boasts an impressively concise 7.9" (20cm) close focus range, accompanied by a generous 11.5° wide-angle perspective.

The BK7 roof prism rectifies images both horizontally and vertically, ensuring accurate image orientation.

Meanwhile, the fully coated anti-reflection optics guarantee optimal light transmission, resulting in vivid, sharp, and high-contrast visuals.

Encased in a robust aluminum alloy housing, this monocular is enriched with a red anodized finish that provides exceptional resistance against both corrosion and scratches.

The inclusion of a textured rubber focus collar elevates its handling ease, and the fold-down rubber eyecup enhances comfort during protracted usage, accommodating both eyewear and bare eyes.

Crafted in Japan, the Artscope monocular arrives complete with a sturdy hard case and a convenient carrying strap to ensure its safekeeping.



  • 4x Magnification: The 4x magnification capability of the monocular brings subjects closer, making it perfect for observing artwork and crafts in detail. This feature enhances your ability to appreciate finer aspects that might not be visible with the naked eye alone.
  • 12mm Objective Lenses: The 12mm objective lenses gather ample light, resulting in brighter and clearer images. This is especially valuable in indoor environments like museums where lighting might be controlled but not overly bright.
  • Reveals Details of Artwork and Crafts: The combination of the 4x magnification and 12mm objective lenses enables the monocular to unveil intricate details in artwork and crafts that might otherwise go unnoticed. This enhances your overall viewing experience, allowing you to appreciate the artist's skill and the nuances of the piece.
  • Fully Coated Optics: The fully coated optics ensure minimal light loss due to reflections, resulting in improved image brightness, contrast, and color accuracy. This coating also contributes to image clarity, making your observations more rewarding.
  • Ribbed Rubber Focus Collar: The ribbed rubber focus collar provides a tactile and easy-to-grip surface for precise focusing. This allows you to quickly and smoothly adjust the focus to bring your subject into sharp clarity.
  • Fold-Down Rubber Eyecup: The fold-down rubber eyecup serves two main purposes. It shields your eye from external light, improving image visibility, and provides comfortable eye relief. This feature is particularly beneficial for eyeglass wearers.
  • BK7 Roof Prism: The BK7 roof prism design allows for a more compact and streamlined construction of the monocular. This contributes to the monocular's lightweight and portable design, making it easy to carry during your museum visits.
  • Exceptionally Short 7.9" Close Focus: The exceptionally short close focus distance of 7.9 inches allows you to observe objects in remarkable detail from a very close distance. This is advantageous when examining intricate elements or textures within the artwork.
  • Anodized Aluminum Housing: The anodized aluminum housing not only offers durability and protection to the internal optics but also adds an aesthetic touch. The housing's sleek design and color match provide a visually pleasing experience.
  • Made in Japan: The "Made in Japan" label signifies a commitment to precision engineering and quality craftsmanship. Japanese optical manufacturing is renowned for its attention to detail, ensuring that the monocular delivers exceptional performance and longevity.
