Too good for it's own good – 15X Close-up Map Magnifier Reviews

Powerful optic and shatter resistant plastic, together at last. But not really in a good way.
Small distorted focal area surrounded by funhouse blur. Not really useful due to excess image distortion.
I have several of the 10 x version and they work better for my purposes. It may be possible to use one of these as a sort of insect hell-hole in which you capture bugs under the base and use sunlight to make them sizzle. If you like doing that sort of thing you sick, depraved bastard.
Just get the 10x version. The image isn't as distorted and if you need more magnification you can just lift it off the table and the image gets larger. I actually use the 10x every day at work. Really. I'm not kidding. I promise that's true. Honest.
