    Looking at just the lens i want know how i can test it out.

    The viewhole is tiny on one side and large on the other. Not sure which side to look into.

    I did however try putting both sides against my smartphone camera and point it around but at most its blurry and cant focus.

    Which side do you look thru and if it’s the tiny one, how can your eyes focus on anything through it?



    Hi !

    I agree about the fact that the assembly part can be complicated to follow. I made several mistakes mainly on the orientation of the couplers. I can suggest you to disassemble completly your foldscope and built it again by paying attention to assembly instructions and especially to the orientation and the side of the couplers but also of the lens. The right side to look at is the tiny hole. Once is done, start by looking at it using your eyes to make sure you can focus on something.



    Hello all –
    Please look at the tutorials we have put together to show how to build and use the folscope – that should help with questions like these.

    Happy Foldscoping!
