MigFest Auction

Today, we present to you an extraordinary lot, a collection of top-tier optics and accessories that any birder, or outdoor enthusiast would dream to possess. Without further ado, let's delve into the lot:

25 August 2023

Behold the OPTICRON MM3 SCOPE 60. The MM3 60 GA 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 a pair of 42mm binoculars. 

Paired seamlessly with the scope, we have the HDF ZOOM 15 - 45X EYEPIECE. A high definition zoom eyepiece with long eye relief for comfort with or without glasses.


But that's not all! Included in this extraordinary lot is the SLIK 400DX ALU 3-SECTION TRIPOD WITH SH-707SP PAN HEAD. An all purpose 3-section aluminium tripod designed for use with fieldscopes, photo & video equipment. Featuring a maximum usable height of 1445mm/56.9", the Slik Pro 400DX tripod is fitted with a sliding centre column.


For the discerning owner who values protection and convenience, we present the BLACK MM3 60/45 STAY ON CASE. Waterproof multi-layer padded case designed to fit the Opticron MM3 60 GA ED/45 Travelscope. Protects the instrument in storage, during transport and when fitted to a tripod and in use.


And let's not forget the modern touch – the USM-2 SMARTPHONE DIGISCOPING MOUNT. In an era where capturing the moment is paramount, this mount bridges the gap between traditional optics and cutting-edge technology. IThe USM-2 provides a simple and flexible way to connect your smartphone to Opticron SDL, HDF and HR eyepieces and shoot video or take high magnification photos.

The USM-2 comprises a mounting plate with 4 adjustable clamps to hold your smartphone securely coupled to a self centring 3-pin adjustable clamp that fixes securely over your eyepiece.

The USM-2 is compatible with mobile phones fitted with a single front facing camera lens and a screen size up to 6” - subject to the position of the camera lens on the device.
