BelOMO 20x Quadruplet Loupe Magnifier

The BelOMO 20x Quadruplet Loupe Magnifier has a viewing area of .28" (7mm), much larger than the Bausch & Lomb Hastings 20x Triplet Magnifier. The large .5" (17.5mm) 4 elements gather lots of light to provide this quadruplet loupe with a bright and clear view. 

The following details are true of any lens such as a loupe magnifier, microscope, telescope, camera lens or other high magnification lens.

A 20x magnifier should NOT be the only magnifier you own. It's just too much magnification for normal usage. For instance, if you're using it to look at newsprint you would see at most a 4 letters at a time.

Must you have such strong magnification?

You'll be incredibly close to the object you are examining. Almost touching. For a 10x the focus distance is around 3/4'' but for a 20x it's about 5/16''.

The 20x power magnification provides a very strong level of magnification which works best on flat objects like coins or stamps or surfaces of objects. However, only a small area (field of view) will be visible. Think of examining a quarter and all you can see is the date but it's highly magnified.

The stronger the magnification means the less depth of field the lens will have. Depth of field is the vertical relief that appears in focus on an object having an irregular surface like a rock or mineral. You'll have to ''dance'' the lens around more on rocks and minerals but the portion of the object you're viewing will be highly magnified. The limited depth of field also make a 20x the most magnification you'll want to use when hand holding a loupe. With a higher magnification the slightest movement in you hand will cause the image to continually move in and out of focus.

The high magnification works well when you need to closely examine the surface of a rock or mineral, the surface of a gem for minute scratches, small areas of coins and stamps or any other object where you need to examine a small area under high magnification. It's great for reading laser inscriptions on diamonds.

The 20x power is a favorite of sharpeners of knives and razors, examining phonograph needles and pen nibs because you can see such edge detail.

The larger size of this lens compared to other 20x loupes means it will capture lots of light for a very bright view. This is also a loupe that you can hold comfortably in your hand unlike the smaller than a dime lens from Bausch & Lomb.

The housing and cover are machined metal and coated with a matte black finish and assembled using flathead screws. Belarusian Optical and Mechanical Association (BelOMA), makers of sights for guided weaponry, camera lenses, and other optical components manufacturers these loupes.

Highly recommended by the Amateur Geologist. The BelOMO loupes are the loupes we always use though it's the 10x that we typically carry in the field. If you MUST have 20x power then this is a great lens to have.

Don't let this price fool you. The BelOMO loupe is a FANTASTIC buy. These are quality lenses that stand on their own against the higher priced competition. Take advantage of the recovering Belarus economy and a military supplier finding other revenue streams in a capitalistic market.

Each BelOMO loupe we ship is custom treated to prevent the screws from coming loose with usage.

  • Lanyard, Plain Black, 3/4in Nylon, with Quick Release Buckle and Split Ring

    Lanyard, Plain Black, 3/4in Nylon, with Quick Release Buckle and Split Ring

    Heavy duty 3/4'' plain black nylon loupe lanyard with a quick release buckle and a split ring. This lanyard may be used for any purpose but we've had it custom manufactured specifically for use with the BelOMO loupe.

    Important: We offer this lanyard for no additional charge when you buy the combo package of the BelOMO loupe with attached lanyard. Attaching the lanyard requires a screw to be removed so let us do it. We've been doing it for years and you save money!

    Use the split ring on loupes with a mounting hook. To use the lanyard with a BelOMO loupe remove one screw on the support shaft of your BelOMO loupe, swivel the frame out of the way and slide the end over the support shaft then install the screw again. Don't use the split ring to attach the lanyard to the loupe. (We suggest that you purchase the loupe with the lanyard already installed.)

  • Eruption of Mount St. Helens

    The Eruption of Mount St. Helens! chronicles the cataclysmic events during one of America's most famous natural disasters, capturing the dramatic primary and secondary eruptions that began on Sunday, May 18, 1980 at 8:32 a.m. When the destruction was over, the once beautiful symmetrical cone rising 9,667 feet above sea level had lost over 8.8 billion cubic yards of ice, rock and dirt, decreasing its height by 1,300 feet.

    Originally shot in the IMAX format, this film includes footage from the rescue helicopters that combed the area looking for survivors after the initial eruption. These amazing scenes reveal an unearthly landscape of mud, ash, and steaming craters, which sharply contrasts with the pre-eruption scenery of pristine snow-covered peaks and the crystal waters of Spirit Lake.

    As the film revisits the area a decade later, it is startling to see the rapid recovery after so much devastation. In this celebration of nature, "The Eruption of Mount St. Helens!" explores the power of nature to destroy, and to heal, in a cycle of destruction and creation that constantly changes the world in which we live.

  • Field Geology Illustrated

    This is one of our highly recommended books. It's profusely illustrated with both black & white photos along side drawing that pull out the detail of the photo. This technique makes it far easier to see and understand the geology.

    Field Geology was designed to serve as a field reference to aid in recognizing, interpreting, and describing geologic features at the outcrop. Emphasis is on the study of mesocopic features that can be viewed at outcrop scale rather than large structures or landscapes. This book is not an exhaustive or comprehensive treatise on the subject of field geology, but instead cover the information necessary to understand and describe most outcrops...

    Field Geology should be useful as a complementary text for any field-related geoscience course such as physical geology, field geology, petrology, and structural geology. The detailed descriptions, illustrations and photographs of geologic features in their field setting will be particularly useful (AG: on a field trip, vacation, or) where field trips are not feasible.

    This book is also intended for anyone who needs a good basic review of field geology including graduate students preparing for field mapping, professional geologists who wish to bring their skill up to date quickly and easily and even serious amateur geologists (AG: We believe this is useful to anyone interested in geology in the field!)Self study will be particularly rewarding because an interpretative sketch and detailed description is included with each photograph.
