Easy To Double Your Power For Binoculars

PUT A DOUBLER over one eyepiece, and voila! your binocular does double duty as a mini spotting scope. Several binocular manufacturers make them for their binoculars.

The most versatile doubler is the Vortex 2x Doubler. It works with all 32mm or larger Vortex binoculars. It holds on by friction or pressure, with no threads to match up, and as a result it works with the binoculars made by many other manufacturers as well.

It’s a nifty gadget, because it is small enough to carry in a pocket and weighs under 5 ounces. So if you it’s not convenient to tote your scope, for example on a business trip, you can take this along instead.

And when you really need that extra magnification for a great bird on the far side of the lake, you can use your doubler to turn an 8-power binocular into a 16-power scope. Or, make your 10-power binocular give you 20-power magnification.
