How the Phonescope Works
The Phonescope increases the magnification levels on your smartphone or tablet. This allows you to take images that show details at thirty times (30x) the standard magnifiaction rates. With access to crystal clear, close-up pictures, you can then diagnose issues much more easily. 30x magnification shows enough detail to easily pick out bugs. Armed with the right information, you can then formulate a plan that will help you to correct the situation. With better information, you’ll make better decisions, which makes for an improved indoor garden
The Phonescope is also great for analysing essential oil glands. By looking at the colour of these glands, it’s possible to make an assessment about a plant’s level of maturity, which can be useful if you’re trying to decide when to harvest.
How to Use the Phonescope
You can start taking pictures with the Phonescope within seconds of opening the box. Just pull the spring-levers back and slide the unit over your phone or tablet, so that the lens of the magnifying glass sits in front of the lens on your phone. You’ll notice that, when the levers are pulled back, the Phonescope’s light switches on automatically, prepping you for the shot. All that’s left to do is navigate to your camera software and take an image, or you can simply view everything through the your smartphone screen in realtime.
