We make the best viewers in the world.

We make the finest and most attractive non-coin and coin viewfinders (both binocular and telescope) in the world.

We receive numerous compliments from around the globe regarding our Scandinavian designs; the eye-catching appearance of our product is a major appeal for users. Our robust, heavy-duty products are built to sustain intense usage, extreme weather and to a great extent, vandalism and other forms of abuse.

Flexible viewing options.

We now make standard model non-coin and coin binoculars and telescopes in different magnifications, as well as wheelchair (ADA) models, and the popular Dual models with two heads on one post.

And recently we released a brand new model, the beautiful VistaViewer, a lighter viewfinder designed for the private residence or recreation property.

Tried and true design.

We built our first coin-operated viewfinder in 1991 and introduced non-coin models in 1998.

We have incorporated design improvements to our product line as a result of this wealth of experience in operating and selling viewfinders over the years.

A strong commitment to innovation is a core value of our company.
