    Decent Microscope with a few issues

          Comments about Celestron Model #44108 1500x Professional Biological Microscope:

          It is a decent microscope but there is a room for improvement. The issues were minor and not necessarily warrant sending it back.
          1) The clamp that keeps the slide in place was not properly fixed and I very nearly lost the tiny screws when I took it out of the plastic wrapping. The threads were stripped on one of the two screws. As a result, it was a bit loose until I glued it in place with plastic cement.
          2) The maximum intensity of the lamp could be better. At the higher magnification, (100x objective with oil immersion) you need to keep the aperture opening relatively small to achieve acceptable depth of field. The view is pretty dark at high magnifications.
          3) The aperture ring does not have any markings indicating its aperture diameter. It is difficult to match the NA to the NA of the objective.

          On the plus side, the metal construction is rigid (apart from the loose clamp), focusing is easy and the quality of the lenses is decent for the price we pay.

          Comments about Celestron Model #44108 1500x Professional Biological Microscope:

          I am a 'backyard scientist.' I love to garden and enjoy learning about plants. This scope has two eyepieces - 10x and 15x. In combo with the four lenses, you can get some pretty high closeups. You do have to know how to use oil immersion in order to get the highest possible power. I wish that the instruction booklet that came with the scope gave more information about what that means and how to do it. Also, they give you five prepared slides, but no blank slides. I would think that users of this good a scope would like some included blanks. I had to order mine.

            Comments about Celestron Model #44108 1500x Professional Biological Microscope:

            This scope has it where it counts. With an Abbe condenser, mechanical stage, and iris aperture adjustment, it suits my needs perfectly as a biology hobbyist. Since plan optics weren't in my budget, this was the best bet because I can upgrade to better optics at a later point in time.

            The illumination is great for this scope. Magnified slides look incredibly clear, all the way up to 1500x magnification.
