MM3 60 GA/45 Travelscope

    The MM3 60 GA/45 is an evolution of the travelscope concept pioneered by Opticron. Constructed from polycarbonate and lightweight alloys, the super-compact optical system creates a body just 247mm/9.7" long weighing about the same as pair of 42mm binoculars. They can be hand held for crystal clear flat field observation at magnifications below 20x but unlike binoculars deliver magnifications up to 45x for close-up accurate observations at distance.

    • 60mm HDF lens design
    • Fully multi-coated optical system
    • Lightweight polycarbonate and alloy body
    • Fully protected in soft touch textured rubber armor

    • Wide wheel focuser with 8:1 ratio accurate focusing adjuster
    • Rubber objective lens cover
    • Large footprint +/- 90° rotating tripod sleeve

    Eyepieces

      MM3 60 GA/45 - Mike Alibone

      Saturday, March 16, 2019

      So, for anyone considering purchasing a relatively low-cost telescope, which has enough 'muscle' to perform admirably alongside larger models, at a reasonably high magnification, while at the same time is small enough to be classed as easily portable, the MM3 could be the answer.

      MM3 60 GA/45 - Paul Brewster

      Thursday, May 31, 2018

      The dull spring of 2018 proved to be an ideal testing ground for this scope. I went into the test with the idea that this would be a good cheap option for a second (especially for travel) telescope, but came out of it thinking that it would also hold its own as a birder‘s main scope if working on a lower budget.
