Most Helpful Customer Reviews
I was looking for an affordable digital microscope that had everything in one unit. I started off using this for coins and stamps as I trade them via online services. Works great for getting a quality photo. But I have found myself using this for so many things. My kids have fallen in love with the Cosmos show and now we are looking at bugs, dirt, salt, just about anything we can think of. Its been kind of fun around the house as the kids think of something, then its "lets look at it on the microscope!"
The quality is good, its super easy to use and we have really enjoyed this product.
Used this as a great backpack take along. I took a Boy Scout troop on a nature hike and it was great to examine pond water, minerals, and leaf structure. Very rugged, and the view screen was very useful in the field.This is a great solution if you are looking for a great portable microscope that can take a beating, this should do it.
Garbage product... It did not even fire with supplied battries and i also tried to put new battries and still did not wanna start up. Feels like cheap toy any ways. I had to return it and got my full credit from amazon. Will not buy again with celestron any more.
