The ground-breaking Mesoscope 2 magnifying tele-microscope for aquariums has just been endowed with an accessory to capture the highly detailed view of your reef. The Ogles 5 megapixel C-mount camera for the Mesoscope 2 is ready to mate up with the Mesoscope to produce wonderful, magical pictures of the critters living on your rock, on the sand, in and on your corals, without ever having to touch or disturb them.
You have to check out Ogles’ newest Gallery demonstrating a crop of images which very clearly blow away what was possible back in 2005, when the first Mesoscope was launched. Like never before, it is now possible to get all natrualist on your reef tank and nurture your inner David Attenborough to go on a safari in the ecosystem you’ve created. Or someone else’s tank, either way, no matter how long you’ve been staring at mini reefs and nano reefs you are bound to see and discover new things.
The 5MP C-Mount camera is available to frolic with your new mesoscope for £225 ($334) and can be picked up in the Ogles Store.

Another advantage of using a C – Mount Camera is the live preview image of the subject on your computer, giving you precise control over focusing and allowing you to capture the finest detail.
