              I'm a volunteer naturalist and always looking for neat gadgets to help teach nature detail. This digital microscope allows me to scan feathers, butterfly wings, bug eyes and such and via USB, display and capture the image on a laptop so the kids can see it big. Much better than young kids trying to manipulate hand lenses.

              Using for coin analysis
              - Good to see detailed pics on the screen,
              - Fast Capture of images.

              - Little tediuos without a stand,
              - Unable to get full picture of coins.
              To fix this I bought a stand (rotary tool stand)With some home made attachement - it works good now.

                        This digital microscope is extremely easy to set up and use. Can capture stills and video. Excellant resolution but most important feature is the fact it is a zoom scope.This lets you view at any magnification between 25x and 130x. You can also adjust for low light conditions.Just a well made, reasonably priced scope that delivers all that you need. I mostly use mine while viewing micro minerals.Works perfectly. Once you start playing around with it you look up and 5 hours have gone by. Kids are fascinated with it too.
