Explore the microworld with Celestron's Amoeba Dual Purpose Digital Microscope. It is a versatile, compact, and ergonomic magnifying tool that can be used both as a handheld device or hands-free when placed on the included stand with a round specimen base. With dual bottom and top LED illumination, its 1.3MP CMOS imaging sensor will capture bright and crisp images or videos of your specimens, magnified up to 200x on a 14" monitor. The microscope draws its power and relays visual data to your computer via an integrated USB 2.0 cable. For mounted hands-free configuration, the hand unit slides down into the stand's semi-circular clip and allows you to study objects less than 0.4" in diameter on the 3.2" wide base. The base also features two pre-loaded clips for securely holding slides or other flat samples. Using the two coaxial knobs on both sides of the stand, you can bring your samples in or out of focus. The rubber ring on the body of the scope allows you to change magnifying power. Also located on the see-through clear blue polymer body are several control buttons that allow you turn on illumination or capture images without resorting to controls on your PC. This microscope is compatible with Windows and Mac operating systems and includes a ULead Software CD for Windows.
