    Celestron 44421 reviews

    Digital Microscope Imager (Black) is rated 3.6 out of 5 by 9.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Exciting product I replaced one of the eyepieces in our binocular microscope. I then looked at slides under various magnifications. Fed picture into laptop. Took some adaptation as now I was using the microscope controls but looking at the computer. Good resolution at the default size. Easy to install software. Default image size is small and making it full screen (16:9, 17 inch) loses a little resolution. Not enough to make a significant difference. Picture capture easy and the pictures are very good. Over all will use this instead of eyepiece and so long to using the duel head for teaching or consultation.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Nice unit. Great value! We use the imager (camera) on various microscopes in the company. The driver is built into Win-XP so it's plug and play (using the scanner and camera wizard). Win-7 is a little harder, but the software installs well (on the non-managed PCs). It fits well into 23mm and 30mm diameter eyepiece openings. The bodt seems to be nicely finished aluminum. I wish it included a cover for the sensor end. Everyone wants one! My only problem is getting it back.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good value As long as you only need to do brightfield imaging with low to medium quality, then this is a fast, easy-to-use, versatile, low-cost solution.I am a high school science teacher, and it is great for quickly attaching a microscope to a projector via my laptop. All the whiteboard sketches in the world cannot replace an actual field of view captured in real time. I have successfully captured images from pre-made, stained slides of typical subjects like onion root tip crossections.The camera is exceptionally easy to use. It is automatically recognized by both Windows XP and OS X, and it was accessible from Photobooth in the Mac and the included software in Win XP. It has an automatic brightness/contrast adjustment that tries to adjust to the lighting and usually does so quite well.I use it with both my Mac laptop using Photobooth and in Windows XP through Parallels desktop. In Photobooth, I cannot get it to capture video, nor can I get it to capture images at resolutions higher than 640 x 480. It works as advertised in Win XP (640 x 480 video and 2 MP stills).With a little modification, I was also able to mount into the 1.25 eyepiece of a Celestron Starhopper telescope, and I was able to capture good daylight images. The camera lacks the sophisticated drivers that you would need to take images of stars.My main con is that the drivers do not allow much (if any) adjustment of key features that would allow a skillful user to take better photos. You can't even control the exposure time. That means a lot of soft photos and no demanding lighting conditions like fluorescence microscopy or stargazing.Also it has a built-in 15x lens that seems unnecessary considering that the microscope does most of the magnifying. All the extra zoom really does is narrow your field of view.Overall, I have a few complaints, but what do you expect for*? My research-grade Hamamatsu ORCA ER could do amazing things, but it literally cost 1000 times more. This does 90% of what I need it to do.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from It Works On Mac Too It works on Mac with Photo Booth, software not needed. For PC, the software takes a picture and takes a video. Slide the camera into the attachment ring, slip it in your scope and plug in the USB. It's probably the easiest time I ever had with any electronic equipment. Fixed at 15X.

    Rated 1 out of 5 by from Not whatI expected. I intended to use the imager in my Celestron stereo microscope to photograph micro minerals to add image to my catalogue. First problem was the adaptor did not fit into the eyepiece hole on the microscope which I found a bit strange as they are both celestron items. After machining adaptor to get it to fit hole I was greatly disappointed to find that the field of view of the imager is only about 10% of what is seen through the microscope eyepieces. Wasted my money on this one as it is useless for my intended use. The imager was easy enough to set up on computer and while not a great picture regards clarity I did not try to improve definition using the available quality adjustments as it went back in the box to never see the light of day again. Should have listened to my own advice of buy cheap buy twice

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Very honest purchase The specific camera is a very useful addition to digitize your camera view. Camera attachment is very easy, resolution is good enough. It is highly recommended for amateur biologists, entomologist and everybody looking for a cheap but dignified solution.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from worth the price Gives video output that is compatible with common video players such as VLC so it doesn't necessarily require you to use the driver disc. The video is not super smooth for moving objects in the field so it takes a little extra time to focus and point. I used it on both a spotting scope as well as a microscope with good results. It is worth the price, which is minimal.

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Expected better quality I guess this was a case of you get what you pay for. The product works, but it really needs a good light source and the frame rate is horrible. At least you can touch up the stills afterwards, especially the white balance. I will use it for now, but I will probably get a better device later.
