Best of the cheap pocket scopes.
on April 24, 2012
If you know what a trichome is, you'll want to get this scope. I have both this and the Carson MM-100 MicroMax. Here's how they stack up against each other:
The MicroMax is half the size of the SE MW10085. This makes it harder to hold and focus unless it is on a table.
The MM has a puny LED which doesn't provide enough light to see much.
The SE MW10085 has a great zoom slider and focus wheel which are easy to operate while looking through the lens. The MMax is much harder to focus in situ without moving it all over and losing the object to be viewed.
In fact, the only thing I liked about the MMax is the rubber eyepiece (no biggie).
