The new red edition Leica 8x20 Monovid Monocular is a real eye-catcher for those who love the opera, concerts or sporting and cultural events. It is small, light (6 oz.), easy to use and its technical details are equivalent to the Monovid 8x20 black. The new red edition Leica 8x20 Monovid Monoculars are close-up lens that allows detailed observation of objects at distances as close as 25-30 cm which is perfect for viewing butterflies and insects. Simply screwing the Leica 8×20 Monovid onto the front lens lets users experience a macro effect that reveals even the finest details.
Leica's Monovid 8x20 Red Edition's aluminum body is nitrogen-filled to prevent misting, and its lenses are coated with water and dirt repellent AquaDuraTM coating. Furthermore, in contrast to all other monoculars, it is not only splash-proof but fully waterproof to a depth of 5m (16.5 ft). The Monovid 8x20 is supplied complete with an elegant leather case with a silent magnetic fastener. The case also has a compartment specifically to keep the close-up lens in - so it is safe when not in use.
