Weems & Plath, manufacturer of fine nautical and weather instruments, is pleased to introduce the Grand View Magnifier.
Made of flawless crystal-clear acrylic it delivers a 50% increase in magnification over its smaller kin, the #515 Crystal Magnifier. No focusing is necessary. Simply look through it from a wide range of angles and distances without squinting. With 6x magnification, the ‘bright field’ optical design has the effect of collecting light from all around and directing it onto the surface.
Created for reading details on nautical charts with its’ authentic compass rose (degree markings) inscribed on the bottom, this acrylic chart magnifier is endlessly useful in the home or office. In addition to making an attractive chart or paperweight, it is great for other users such as: photographers, hobbyists, map readers & coins collectors.
“Integrating a compass rose into a magnifier helps the chart navigator determine position and heading quickly and easily,“ says Peter Trogdon, Weems & Plath President.
Available online at www.weems-plath.com and from our various distributors, the Grand View magnifier, item #615, is delivered in a felt-lined gift box and weighs 14 oz.
