Museum Viewing

A handheld magnifier will greatly enhance your enjoyment of museum exhibitions of paintings, fine crafts, and ancient artifacts. Since these objects are often displayed in glass cases, you want a magnifier with a lower "diopter power" (that is, a longer focal distance) so that you will be able to bring encased objects into focus.

A Zeiss D6-AR magnifier is ideal for this kind of viewing. It will show you fine brush strokes in oil paintings and intricate carved detail in scrimshaw and jade. Anti-Reflective Coating is particularly important for museum viewing since lighting is often provided by bright overhead spots. (Most exhibitions will allow you to use a magnifier, a few will not - be sure to check with a docent.)
