Most Helpful Customer Reviews
As a professional scientist and keen hobbyist, I've used and owned many student, mid-level and high-end lab-grade microscopes. When it comes to optical technology, I have found that to get good-quality "glass" you DO have to pay more. The CB2000C is more expensive than the "Number 1 Best Seller" Omax and AmScope products, but the additional one hundred-plus dollars buys you a SOLID piece of lab-grade "glass". There's VERY little plastic on this scope, so it's quite heavy, making for rock-steady viewing and durability. The moving parts are all well machined to high tolerances, so there's no slippage of the image that you get with cheaper rigs. The 10X and 20X eyepieces provide an excellent through-the-lens image all the way up to the maximum 2000 magnification. A nice set of glass filters is provided and all are easy and quick to install in the stage's undercarriage. The combination light source and diaphragm control give the viewer a wide range of illumination,...
Awesome microscope, bad quality control. Came with a shattered 10x eyepiece. Shipping box was in perfect shape--it must have left the factory like this. I've contacted Celestron and have asked for a replacement eyepiece. I'll update this review if they manage to ship one in a timely manner.
I was very surprised that his Microscope was a good as it is for the price. It's not large but large enough and had great power for it's size. It is very substantial. I'm glad I ordered it.
