Fantastic

I have samples of sand from all over the world. This enables me to show that there are no two types of sand.

Microscope a solid product & good value

By

from NH Seacost  -  Avid Adventurer

I use this microscope to examine coins and small objects using my HD computer monitor. If one rotates the microscope outboard 180 degrees from the included base & elevates the base about 4 inches you can view larger objects (such as silver dollars full frame) with the lens focused at infinity. The higher magnifications can be used to authenticate coins and to document microscopic nicks, scratches & die breaks for positive identification of the coin. It can also be used to measure items but I have not used the measurement feature. Using the LED light brightness control one can illuminate the object from the ring of 8 LED lights surrounding the lens (though the illumination is best with the microscope over the included base) The lighting will sometimes cause color shifts in the object being viewed and when used outboard shadows can occur. These problems can be mitigated with additional external lighting. The camera shutter for the 5 MP camera is on the brightness control or may be released using your mouse on-screen. Improvements I would find desirable: * A longer cord between the microscope head and the brightness/shutter release control. * The addition of an on/off switch on the LED light ring. * A 6" longer main post so outboard deployment. would not be necessary.

Close-Up Photo Fun

By

from Ozark, AR  -  Casual/ Recreational

The digital microscope is easy to use and fun! It is built well and the image capture is better than I expected. This is a great tool to get children interested in science and photography. Good value for the price.

great product and resonable price

By

from Peoria, il  -  Academic/Professional Researcher

This is the third celestron microscope I have owned and by for the best. The images are sharp and clear and the holder makes for easy focusing.

Easy to setup & use.

By

from NY

Good for viewing and capture small objects. Not a substitute for macro photograhy. Depth of field shallow. Good optics and focus control is acceptable. Stand is great. Shutter and LED control on USB cord is innovative and cuts vibration.

Great digital microscope

By

from Michigan  -  Professional Guide

I use this microscope to take pictures of cutting tool inserts for wear patterns. The features that work especially well are the light brightness control, the adjustable stand is a plus and once set I can repeat without making adjustments. Good quality pictures from the camera for al my reports. I would recommend this digital microscope.

Pretty much what I expected to recieve

By

from Honolulu, HI

The product is great and it really lives up to what it is marketed as. Easy to use for young students. My only problem with it is the image stabilization. I honestly can't complain considering the cost of the item so it is a minor issue. I have since built a more robust and rigid support to solve the problem. Still working on a computer program to clean up the images a bit more. But, hey, at that price you definitely get a great product.

Major improvement

By

from Ithaca, NY

The PRO represents a major earlier version of this microscope. It's not just the old version with better resolution and a stand. 1) the focus ring is much easier to turn and control 2) the snapshot button has been moved from the microscope body to the in-line switch making it possible to take a snapshot without moving the scope. 3) adjustable illumination is a major plus. Not only can one adjust to optimize the reflectance from the target, but there are times when the uniform bright-field LED illumination is not desireable. One can set up a dark-field illumination or transmission. 4) The software allows for calibration and a ruler is provided to facilitate the calibration. My only complaint is that I don't see a way to get more rulers. It is unlikley that the one ruler supplied will survive too many trips to the field, even if handled with care. 5) The software also allows one to adjust the frequency of collection, number of frames per collect and overall time of collection. Very nice.

Questions about this item:

Shopper  Is this product compatible with Mac - OS X Version 10.9.2 ???
T O  Sorry. I have no experience with Mac OS's.
Shopper  Looking to photo the iris of the eye with fiber detail including fiber depth. need crisp shots and unit needs to have adjustable lighting. Also, is the trigger for the picture on the unit or can you use the software as I'd prefer the camera not move when shooting the picture. Is this good for this? Any other recommendations appreciated.
RICK G  The lighting is completely adjustable from off to bright with a wheel for adjusting. It's on the cord with the shutter button. This is a GREAT little unit.
