This incredibly powerful but surprisingly affordable digital microscope can magnify objects under observation from 50 up to 500X their normal size. The unit plugs directly into your computer via USB, so a traditional power cord is unnecessary, cutting down on cord clutter. The microscope is specially designed for streamlined performance - the device itself only features 2 buttons and a simple self-explanatory zoom reel. One button activates the zoom, while the other snaps a picture of the object you’re observing at your current magnification settings, making the photo file automatically accessible from the computer you’re working on.
The microscope kit includes a lightweight stand that lets you secure the microscope to point directly downward, as well as adjust its resting height. This more advanced stand also has an attached tray on which to place specimens, making this version ideal for the classroom. Excellent for surveying rocks, minerals, stamps, coins, etc. There is also a CD in the box that lets you install the necessary software onto your computer in minutes. The microscope is a great tool for teachers - by hooking the computer image feed up to a projector or television, the entire class can get a good look at the observations the teacher is making. Also an excellent beginner’s scope for curious teens who’d like to get up close and personal with the microscopic world without needing a hefty traditional unit.
