Enhance your workbench or lab with Celestron's Handheld Digital Microscope Pro. This compact magnifying tool offers handheld and stand-mounted operating options. Using the included wide stand with a metal rod, it allows you to adjust and secure your working distance and the horizontal position of the microscope above your samples. The base also provides two pre-loaded clips to hold your slides or flat samples. With its 5.0MP imaging sensor (capable of capturing still images and videos), infrared-reducing 5-element glass lens, and an 8-LED illumination ring, you capture bright and crisp high-resolution images and 30 fps videos. Optimized for 3D examination of larger objects, this kit also can be useful to study miniature artifacts by bumping up the magnification power. The effective magnifying power depends on the size of your monitor and can be increased up to 800x. The device also provides a wide angle of view, an unlimited focusing distance starting from 0.4" (10mm), and an integrated USB cord shutter control.

    Celestron 44308 reviews

    Handheld Digital Microscope Pro (Gray) is rated 4.6 out of 5 by 33.
    Rated 4 out of 5 by from A good enough solution for research The microscope does what is supposed to be doing. It is not too high magnification (don't expect to see individual cells), but it is not low either (40-200x - I could take it up to 120x calibrated and with a good result on the photo). Photos at 5MP have quite large pixels, but 1,3-3MP are very good in quality and very usable. I liked the fact that it automatically polarizes according to the light available and this also prevents too high reflections. I've tested it on several types of materials and I've found that it is not capable of focusing on totally reflective surfaces (e.g. glass, mirror, shiny metals). Other than that I'm very pleased with it and it will be a wonderful complement for my research. I'm an archaeologist working on prehistoric pottery and this microscope will significantly aid the construction of a more precise typology of the pottery analyzed. The software that comes with it is easy to use and easy to learn, but could have been a bit more intuitive (especially in the way photos get to be calibrated - you need to read the manual to understand what to do, but it's easy). Also you won't be able to use it without the stand or any other holding device, in other words it needs to be absolutely still in order to get good results. Finally I liked that there is no button to capture photos on the device, but instead is part of the software, as this prevents shakiness in the photo or video.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great tool This thing is so cool, great images, and excellent magnification. My kids love it and it works great at the office where we capture organic textures for use in our animations. Highly recommended

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent product 5 star rating for the money. I use to evaluate stone before during and after polishing. Be patient with focus and how you support the stone during your evaluation and you will get excellent results. Large monitor helps and also good control of lighting. This device is very versatile and only limited by ones imagination. Variable lighting allows different views of crystalline forms, if you work the problem until satisfied. I am recommending to friends and will buy one for grandkids.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Nothing short of amazing I am a behavioral neurobiologist working on Drosophila (fruit fly) feeding behavior. I wanted to document the appearance and behavior of the flies, but we didn't have a camera on our dissecting microscope. The optics of this microscope are incredible. The field of view and depth of field are not limiting at all. In some ways it is completely comparable to our scope that costs 3 or 4 times the price.The camera is excellent, adjusting to a very wide range of light intensities. The software is simple but has useful functions, and it is intuitive.One drawback is that the stand is a little bit flimsy. The scope can be taken off the stand, however, and held in place by other means. The focus wheel is a little inconvenient when taking a video, since rotating it shakes the scope. In my specific unit, one side of the field of view is not quite in focus when the other side is, but I assume when I bring it back to exchange it, that will not be a problem.Overall, I could not be more satisfied with this purchase. When I showed the images and movies to the head of the lab, he said we should buy more of them.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great microscope for the money I use this microscope to take pictures of electronics at work. I have purchased and used more expensive models from Dyno-Lite in my previous company but have found this Celestron to be just as good. It is also helpful that it works on both Macs as well as Windows to allow anyone in the office to borrow it. The stand is sturdy and can be transported easily in my backpack. Greta microscope camera for the price.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Very impressive! I was skeptical that such an affordable digital microscope would be useful. Turns out this thing is pretty impressive. The software installs without issue and the hardware is very simple: just connect the USB cable and it's ready. This works like any microscope so you need to know what to expect. Optics in microscopes give a very shallow depth of field and this one is no different. Don't expect images like an electron microscope. My son helped me set this up and the first thing we tried was a thin onion membrane. Right away we could see the cell walls and with a little focus we could see the cell nuclei. Then we look at old coins and even an ink line drawn on paper. Really amazing how easy and crystal clear the images were. The software for capturing images and video couldn't be more simple. I actually picked this up to take a few images for a project at my work, which it did very well. This is a great home microscope. The only reason for 4/5 stars is the stand. It's ok but plastic and that makes getting a good focus when zoomed all the way in a little touchy. Still not a show stopper and you'll get the hang of making it work. Couldn't be happier and the B and H price made it even better.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Yes, for sure I have used this product to view coins, newspaper print and bugs. I will continue to look for things to view. I wish I could find an app to use this with an Android tablet. Then I could use this in the field.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent! for under a $ bucks this digital micro scope works well. Nice little stand to hold slides and image 3-d objects. Lights can be actually a bit bright at times.
