£31.00 ex VAT

Ruper 5008 hand lens magnifier with powerful x 20 magnification and a moderate 15 mm wide diameter field of view. An excellent loupe manufactured in Japan, which uses doublet optics with achromatic design to significantly reduce abrasion in your field of view. Renowned in various sectors and fields by their name, this magnifier is manufactured from stainless steel and is unfinished, giving it a texture which provides extra grip making it useful for those particularly working in field conditions where weather may affect your grasp. The loupe is suitable for students, professionals and academics alike, particularly those of you in the fields of geology, gemology, archaeology, antiques dealings, entomology, watchmaking and more.

The Ruper 5008 hand lens boasts excellent x 20 magnification while still providing a moderate 15 mm diameter viewing area for you. This loupe utilises doublet glass lenses with an achromatic design which is done to lessen the effects of chromatic and spherical aberration or distortion. This is manufactured with two lenses, one piece of glass has a concave depression on one side, in this depression sits another piece of optical glass which is convex in shape. As more often than not, the higher the magnification on a magnifier, if the viewing field is too large, the more likely one will encounter less than desired quality in viewing objects. These two pieces of optical glass when put next to each other reduce chromatic distortion. The body and lens housing is made from stainless steel, unfinished, to give it a textured surface while still providing protection for use in rugged environments, the word 'Achromatic' and '20 x' printed onto one side, accessories included is a faux leather pouch to store your lens for protection. Manufactured in Japan, once again, Ruper have produced an excellent high quality lens suitable for used by geologists, jewelers, facets workers, sedimentologists, entomologists and many more to observe your samples and specimens under.
