    Celestron 44302-B reviews

    44302-B Deluxe Handheld Digital Microscope (Gray) is rated 4.5 out of 5 by 10.
    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Overly bright lights create glare I'm using it on Chinese Dynasty stools to get a clearer picture of the antique inked engravings below the surface of the wood. It does improve the visuals and supported my contention that there is an epic going on in these picture-graphs. I did have to build a taller stand then the one provided, as steady distance views to the subject revealed more groups and actions.This is for a fundraiser and even though B&H had no idea who I was or how I was planning to use it, I appreciated your generous efforts in this initial business transaction. Professional and quick to act, so we will be back to peruse more category selections soon.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Fun Little Toy I have set this up on both a MAC and a PC with no problems. It gives you reasonable images on most items. On some things like circuit boards you can get a strong reflection from the LEDS. I did find it a little difficult to focus on some items, looking at an IC wafer is pretty much impossible, probably because the faetures on the wafer are too small to resolve. If I was going to use this at work I would get the one that replaces the microscope eyepiece but for playing around at home this is fine. I think it would be a good low power field microscope for middle school students.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from How To Fix LEDs My unit came at a very good price form B&H, fast service. The LEDs did not work on arrival, other people have had this issue online.. so I used my knowledge. There are two small (brass) bolts on the inner LED ring. They provide contact for the power to illuminate the lights. LED problems? Just tighten them up with needle nosed pliers, mine were loose. Works great now. Apart from that issue, this is a well built inexpensive gizmo which has proven very useful.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Excellent value for the price Great for taking images of tiny objects. It is relatively easy to setup and use. We initially had difficulties running the included software. There were conflicts with the ffdshow video and audio codecs on our PC. However, we were able to resolve the issues by putting the application on the blacklist for ffdshow. One drawback (to be expected of a lower cost microscope) is that focusing at high magnifications is difficult. Moving a fraction of a millimeter can make the image go from focused to completely blurred.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great value - easy way to document Great for documenting mechanical and electrical circuit assembly issues. Hard to believe it works this well at this affordable price.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from My son loves it Bought is as a birthday gift and my son loves it. A great improvement from the microscopes of my day. Great for taking images.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fun and Easy to Use It's very easy to use, either in it's stand or handheld. Excellent image quality at all magnification levels.
