The clear circle does not have any magnification. Otherwise It looks exactly as pictured
Finally got a chance to talk to an eagle scout. He told me that mine were definitely not liquid filled. The needle bounces all over while walking. The purpose of the liquid is to minimize that. I'm sending mine back to amazon.
This will get you where your going if you know how to use it (comes with good direction) not hard to master once you try it out. I bought this to add to my emergency bag because i know it won't take me in circles.
Fun fact: Keep anything metal away from it when you use it. Why? Because it will point at whatever metal your holding since it has a magnet that is what points to "magnetic" north.
Story time: Some hunters through history have walked in circles because they held this next to there gun barrels.
When Hitler's army was trying to build the first self guided unmanned missle he used compasses to guid them where to go...his first few kept crashing since they detected the metal around it. He put the compasses in a fancy wood box to fix that...btw don't worry he only used a few successful before the good guys stopped them. (The last story i heard from PBS i think it was...im going off what they said talking about the war and technology)
It's the place to start for learning compass navigation; however, if you know what magnetic declination/variation is off the top of your head, get one with an adjustment mechanism to save yourself time navigating. There really is no need to go crazy with a special compass though, it's old tech and almost everything that can go wrong is do to user error :)
