        I am an amateur photographer and wanted to move into some microphotography. When I considered buying the Clestron 44345 I was at first a little skeptical about the claimed capabilities for an optical instrument priced around $300. I also read a few reviews complaining about the scope display not working. I did buy the microscope and am pretty happy with it. I used image staging software and the photo merge capabilities of Photoshop to get some nice results. See: www.dzre.com/alex/celestron/

        Buyer beware! Celestron technical support acknowledges there are known issues with the touchscreen on this model of microscope. I purchased one as a Christmas present for my son, when it arrived, the touchscreen would freeze every time I tried to enter setup, view videos or view pictures. When the touchscreen froze, the unit would not power down by pushing the power button, forcing me to resort to unplugging the microscope in order to shut it down. In addition, when I connected the product to my windows 7 computer via a USB cable, the computer was not able to recognize or access the microscope's internal memory.
        I skyped technical support at Celestron. After waiting thirty minutes on hold, I was able to describe the product's behavior to a polite and professional operator who was quick to tell me that there are known issues with the touchscreen on this model of microscope. I was informed that if I wished the brand new microscope to be repaired it would have to be shipped from my overseas location back to California at my expense, where it would take at least thirty days to repair.
        After learning of this defect, I browsed the internet and discovered several reviews written by people with similar experiences.
        I have since returned the product to B&H Customer support who were very helpful and professional.
        I am disgusted that Celestron have not recalled this product and done thorough quality control checks. Instead, they allow customers to purchase a potentially defective product and waste money on shipping and in my case duties and taxes. In my opinion, instead of spending money on slick product videos, Celestron would do far better by ensuring that their product works as advertised. I will not be buying any Celestron products in the future.

            Celestron microscope

            By George

            from Phoenix

            Comments about Celestron LCD Deluxe Digital Microscope:

            Overall the microscope is very nice. The only thing I don't like about it is the placement of the above light. If you switch to anything above 100 x you will not be able to benefit from the light above. You would need another light source. But still for the price it's a very nice scope.

                This is really a toy microscope. It is light-weight plastic, the screen is small, images are not really clear and it does not stream live images to a computer. Useless for my middle school science class. I returned it and once again realized that you do get what you pay for.

                      I bought this scope as a hobby and I am totally blown away by its capabilities.In one drop of pond water I saw neat little creatures clinging to algae and trying to survive. In one or 2 instances I saw a larger monster scurrying across the lcd screen. It looked so huge compared to the other microscopic creatures that it seemed I was viewing into a 5 gallon bucket. This is such a neat gadget that I will always plan on using it in the future. I like the fact that it has photo and video capabilities. I will use it often.

                          Just received my unit yesterday. It performs flawlessly out of the box. Comes with everything you need. The only thing you will need to buy is blank slides.I like that you can view on the lcd screen. Celestron hit a home run with these lcd microscopes. I am certain other companies will follow suit.

                                I purchased this for a veterinary hospital. It has been a great teaching tool, as multiple people can review a slide at once. We plan to use it to capture images for use in scientific publications, to add images to electronic medical records, for in-house presentations, and all sorts of other things.

                                  This is a great home product. I gave this as a gift to my wife and she loves it. It is very accurate but does require quite a bit of time to master the techniques to get some things to show. However, once mastered it produces great pics of whatever specimens you are looking at. The trick for those who are having difficulty at higher magnification is that the lens must come almost in contact with the slide before you will see anything at those powers.

                                        We homeschoolers are having a fantastic time with our new microscope. I have not layed a finger on it. My teenagers (16, 14) easily got right to work finding things on prepared slides, and making slides to view things as well. I was able to just sit back and enjoy the show. They recorded things, and played them back all without my help. So I would say this is user friendly, the magnification is great and the screen enables all of us to view the images together, which makes the shared experience of viewing God's microscopic creations so much more enjoyable. The kids have been very motivated to create more slides and explore many new things. Our younger two kids cannot wait until their turn to learn Biology!

                                            The microscope elements and LCD display are of decent quality and the fact that multiple people can view slides at the same time is a huge plus and the main reason to purchase such a scope. Also comes with a good quality dust cover that slips over the entire unit.

                                                  We were shown this microscope by a starch supplies sales rep. and ordered it right away. This is a neat little microscope for every day use, with the ability to view the slide on an easy to use touch screen. The image can then be recorded for filing and archiving into a PC. All for about 400.00$ all included compared to the usual lab microscope 10 times more expensive. WOW.

                                                      I am an amateur photographer and wanted to move into some microphotography. When I considered buying the Clestron 44345 I was at first a little skeptical about the claimed capabilities for an optical instrument priced around $300. I also read a few reviews complaining about the scope display not working. I did buy the microscope and am pretty happy with it. I used image staging software and the photo merge capabilities of Photoshop to get some nice results. See: www.dzre.com/alex/celestron/

                                                                Buyer beware! Celestron technical support acknowledges there are known issues with the touchscreen on this model of microscope. I purchased one as a Christmas present for my son, when it arrived, the touchscreen would freeze every time I tried to enter setup, view videos or view pictures. When the touchscreen froze, the unit would not power down by pushing the power button, forcing me to resort to unplugging the microscope in order to shut it down. In addition, when I connected the product to my windows 7 computer via a USB cable, the computer was not able to recognize or access the microscope's internal memory.
                                                                I skyped technical support at Celestron. After waiting thirty minutes on hold, I was able to describe the product's behavior to a polite and professional operator who was quick to tell me that there are known issues with the touchscreen on this model of microscope. I was informed that if I wished the brand new microscope to be repaired it would have to be shipped from my overseas location back to California at my expense, where it would take at least thirty days to repair.
                                                                After learning of this defect, I browsed the internet and discovered several reviews written by people with similar experiences.
                                                                I have since returned the product to B&H Customer support who were very helpful and professional.
                                                                I am disgusted that Celestron have not recalled this product and done thorough quality control checks. Instead, they allow customers to purchase a potentially defective product and waste money on shipping and in my case duties and taxes. In my opinion, instead of spending money on slick product videos, Celestron would do far better by ensuring that their product works as advertised. I will not be buying any Celestron products in the future.
