Comments about Celestron Celestron Handheld Digital and Optical Microscope, 20x to 40x & 200x Power, 2mp Camera, LED Illuminated:

I toss this in my laptop backpack and bring it offshore to evaluate millipore results. Millipores are filters used to trap solids for study, in my case, solids that come up in an oil or gas well. I can easily differentiate from metal flakes, proppant, sand and scale. The company used to buy very expensive stereo scopes, but this is all I need. I don't use it optically, though. I probably could use the computer only version.

Comments about Celestron Celestron Handheld Digital and Optical Microscope, 20x to 40x & 200x Power, 2mp Camera, LED Illuminated:

Sure it's not as smooth as a $1000 microscope but for [$] it's very workable. The other reviewer says it's poor quality but what do you expect, fine optics? The 2mg camera does a great job.
