As regular readers here will know, I suffer with back issues, so for me being able to travel light is important, so when Opticron asked if I would review their MM4 50 ED/45 travel scope, and the SDL v2 Zoom and HDF T zoom eyepieces, I thought it would be a great opportunity to see if a light weight scope would be a useful addition to my gear list.
Opticron MM4 Travel Scope - Review
When the huge box arrived, I was a little taken aback, but opening it the scope itself was packaged in a small cardboard box and I instantly wondered how it would cope in a real field test, taking it out of the box the thing was tiny! How could something this small really compete with their larger competitors? - Actually I'm not sure it is meant to really, it is meant to be small and useful for travel etc.
