Brinsea's high intensity candler (the "base" that fits inside this, and is available separately for about half the price) works much better WITHOUT this "scope," but requires a dark room, like a closet, windowless bathroom, or any room after dark. If you have a classroom of school children (daytime) who must all have a turn looking at the egg, this is a helpful appliance. If you are doing a documentary and need to attach a camera and computer system to the scope, this MAY be helpful. Seriously, all this piece of plastic does is create a dark environment with a peephole.

As a private small breeder, it is much more trouble to get the eggs in and out of this thing, only to see a restricted view of the egg. I am able to better evaluate the egg for overall health and development without this... wish I could send it back but Brinsea's 20%-restocking-and-you-pay-the-postage-both-ways makes it not worth the trouble.

Great egg viewer and I like the led light (no/little heat build up), but wish I had seen the high intensity version when buying. Need the high intensity light for darker eggs and since most of my chickens are brown egg layers, I had to also later buy the high intensity light kit to go with this viewer. Also, I have not been able to find the "add-on" piece for the computer/projector viewer that the manual mentions. No one seems to have this on their site - even Brinsea. Or at least, I have not yet found it.

I bought this unit to candle dark eggs. from the description it sounded like it would work. it does not have enough light to candle dark eggs such as Marans but works fine for normal white or beige eggs. instructions to assemble was poor. too bad it wasn't strong enough for the reason I purchased it. otherwise fine but pricey.

I bought this for my daughter's pre-school class chicken hatching project after the traditional flashlight candlers kept breaking. It was expensive but so completely worth it. The children were able to see the veins and slowly turn the egg to find the heart and identify other parts of the chicks as they developed. It just doesn't compare to the flashlight candlers.

If you are candling eggs in a pre-school, I highly recommend this. The viewer allows the teacher to place the egg in the right spot and then the children can turn the egg using the viewer instead of their hands. This reduces the risk of disease, and increases the safety of the egg and growing chick.

Even though it was more expensive, it is absolutely worthwhile for classroom projects.

I love this egg viewer. I've had infertile eggs explode in my incubator in the past so taking a peek at what's going on inside the eggs is a must. Plus, it's so wondrous to watch the little guys develop. It's a great tool. Educational for kids. This Ovascope is far superior to my old electric candler. It's easy to use and you can see so much more detail. Plus its portable. I can take it out to the coop and check on the eggs the hens are setting on before the rotten ones break or blow up. Yuck! I am extremely satisfied with this purchase.

I had used a flashlight bright led candler but still had trouble seeing th embryo clearly inside the egg.
This was expensive but well worth it.

only bad thing about it is that the glass inside got small scratches. still it makes egg candling a lot easier.

I have been incubating and hatching eggs for years and have tried many different lights as candlers. This one is by far the best. It allows me to easily check the eggs without going into a darkened room and I can view the egg from all sides simply by rotating the dial. I'm able to candle each egg much quicker than any other method I've used in the past.
