The MM3 series is the latest evolution of the Travelscope concept pioneered by Opticron nearly 20 years ago with the original Mighty Midget.

Constructed from polycarbonate and lightweight alloys, the optical system is compact enough to create a body only 8” long. Weighing 21oz without eyepiece, 24.3-31oz fitted with an HDF or SDL eyepiece, an MM3 50 ED weighs about as much as pair of standard 42mm binoculars and can be used without a support for crystal clear flat field observation at magnification between 12-15x. If like many users your viewing usually requires the stability of tripod or clamp, the models connect via a universal ¼” thread at the base of the tripod sleeve.

Fully rain and dust proof and protected against knocks and bumps with full-body rubber covering, the MM3 50 ED is available in straight-through and 45° angled bodies to suit different applications. Compatibility with the full range of HDF and SDL eyepieces also means Opticron fieldscope owners can use their existing eyepieces with a new MM3 50 ED body.

Eyepieces

Swans

A wide range of eyepieces are available for use with MM3 fieldscopes. Choosing the best eyepiece will depend on price as well as intended use.

SDL v2 Eyepiece
A 5-group, 8-element ‘super’ zoom, the SDLv2 eyepiece maximizes the performance gains inherent in Opticron ED objective lens fieldscopes at higher powers while maintaining superior cross-field definition coupled with exceptional viewing comfort.

HDF T Eyepieces
The preferred choice for image quality, HDF T eyepieces have large diameter eye lenses and offer ‘walk-in’ field of vision. The eyepieces are long eyerelief to enable the full field of view to be obtained with or without spectacles and fixed magnification models are wide angle. The eyepieces feature a twist type retractable eyecup assembly that enables individual eye to eyepiece distance adjustment. Limited Lifetime Warranty.
