Our most popular line of handheld digital microscopes just escalated to a new level with this amazing handheld digital microscope. The Handheld Digital Microscope Pro from Celestron is an inexpensive microscope intended for students and hobbyists.
This USB-powered microscope has a built-in CMOS camera sensor capable of capturing still photos and videos. And with a ridiculous 5 megapixel resolution that delivers high-performance microscopy. This handheld unit is a wonderful complement for any research.
The mobile computer-powered design makes this unit at home anywhere a laptop can go. Celestron’s Mac/Windows-compatible Micro Capture Pro software allows users to analyse, annotate, manipulate, and save the transmitted images from the digital microscope. An included USB cable also allows real-time images to be displayed on a TV or projected in a classroom.
The Celestron microscope also includes a height-adjustable stand that adds functionality. A 20-200x magnification zoom range that is suited for almost any specimen, including slides and three-dimensional objects. LED illuminators near the microscope objective provide incident lighting that is dimmable using a switch integrated with the USB cable. The built-in 5MP camera, height-adjustable stand, video output cable, and feature-rich software make this unit a well-equipped entry-level instrument for the field, classroom, or home.
