Celestron Micro360 Microscope
As one of Americaâ€™s most recognised astronomy, binocular and microscope brands, Celestron has become synonymous over the last 60 years for award winning innovations and market firsts. The all new Micro360 microscope from Celestron does not fail to live up to these long standing credentials. It incorporates several outstanding features, making it a great value offering to anyone looking for a robust and reliable microscope. With a magnification range from 40x up to 640x, the Micro360 brings a hidden microscopic world to life â€" in stunning detail.
Designed to uncover an invisible world
Engineers at Celestron have designed the Micro360 with several key features which ensure it can deliver optimal performance when operating at all magnifications. The most innovative design feature is the 360 degree rotating head, which gives a user complete flexibility on how and from which position they choose to operate the microscope. The feature also gives the added advantage of allowing several alternating people to use the microscope simultaneously, making it ideal for lab or school environments. Directly underneath the rotating head are 3 objective lenses (powers of 4x/10x/40x), each manufactured from high quality optical glass to Celestronâ€™s globally recognised precision standards. Their superior optical construction ensures that images produced are bright, clear and sharp.
Beneath the objective lenses is a solid platform where the microscope slides can be placed. Adjustable LED light sources above and below the platform as well as a rotating colour filter wheel ensure that the slides are optimally lit in order to produce the best viewing results. Towards the base of the microscope are located two interlinked focus dials which can be operated single or double handed for extra fine tune focusing. The microscope illumination is battery powered (4 x AA, not included) making it very portable. It is manufactured from high quality materials and has been expertly assembled, like all Celestron products, ensuring stability and durability throughout its working life.
Zooming up to 640x
With all these great design features, the Micro360 is a very capable device that can deliver a high level viewing experience regardless of a userâ€™s demands. The primary function of the microscope is its ability to magnify. With a range from 40x up to a powerful 640x, a user has a wide variety of magnifications at their disposal giving them unprecedented access to an everyday microscopic world that is invisible to the human eye.
Accessorise The Celestron Micro360 microscope comes with a set of useful accessories. Two high quality eyepieces are included, 10X and 16x strength, and can be interchanged with one another when more or less power is required.
