National Optical and Scientific Instruments, Inc. presents the Model 101 Compound Microscope. Designed for use in the field, this budget-friendly, portable microscope works equally as well in the classroom or other setting. The combination of 33x magnification and a 4x achromatic objective lens bring specimens into clear view.

Other optical system factors include the Huygenian 10x eyepiece, a working distance of 24mm, and a 140mm focal length. The lucite prism and silver reflective coating make the most of ambient light for illuminating specimens.
