This high-quality microscope uses both built-in natural light (through the mirror) and an LED illumination system and rack and pinion focusing help deliver bright clear images.

  • Disappointed
    Verified Purchase

    This little scope has a lot of potential, but I had two issues: 1. No color wheel: The picture of the product showed a color wheel incorporated into the stage. The color wheel is useful to obtain more detail. This was really disappointing. )All other sites selling model M30 showed a color wheel, so I'm not sure what's going on.) 2. Light: The light assembly was assembled in a way that the contacts did not meet. I was able to reassemble so that the contacts did meet when the light (mirror is flipped to light). But even after doing so, one of the supplied batteries became warm to the touch. Battery polarities were check and found correct, but the light would still not work until I replaced the supplied batteries with Duracell batteries.

    Really fun! Came with a lot of slides which the kids enjoyed.
