works well, takes still and movie images. a little touchy on the focus, a bit like cheap binoculars, but it works once you get the hang of it. I also wanted to setup on Linux, but the imaging chip is not standard. I inquired with Celstron and their technical support line replied that it's proprietary. Oh well, at least it works well under windows. I have example images and movie of insects from my garden at mentalfest dot blogspot dot com. Overall, I feel it's a good value for personal hobby use.

I use this microscope in my research work to take a quick look at small features (10's to 100's of micrometers) on micro-milled metal parts. Because the refresh rate of the image is a little slow, it is tricky to get in focus. That said, this camera is useful for quick, basic inspection. Color balance and light levels are not great, but can be adjusted in software if needed.
This would not replace a good microscope with a good camera, but it is a good option if you're on a budget.

I purchased this microscope to be able to examine coins a lot closer and take photos. It works just as advertised. Led's reflect in the picture if the coin is inside a reflective surface(plastic case, etc).

The video feature on this scope is a "frame by frame" video.

The accessory stand is the best feature for my shaky hands!

The small Cricket on the end of the tweezers didn't suffer long, my Gecko ate it!

This scope was very easy to install & use on laptop. Price is right if you're just using for fun or only require lower magnification. The focus dial is VERY touchy & takes some getting used to. And even the slighest movement throws off focus. Which makes it difficult to snap clear pics. But with practice you can get a decent quality picture.
I was a little disappointed in the description of the magnification power. I thought it was 10x through 150x, meaning everything in between. (Never bought a digital scope before) But, you can only focus at 10x to about 30x, & then again at about 150x.
Overall - not bad but I would rather spend a few more dollars for a few more options or functions and better quality.

I run a core microscopy facility at a major mid-western public university. I originally bought this as a toy for my kids. It worked right out of the box as advertised. We spent 3 hours looking at: a dollar bill, a dime, a plant leaf, and our finger prints on a clean piece of glass sitting on a black sheet of paper. The focusing mechanism is a bit funky (for kids and adults new to microscopy) with the manual adjust, but otherwise is great once you get used to it. Five minutes of patience will give you hours of fun. We (my lab manager and I) liked these microscopes so much we bought a couple for the lab, and to teach a short-course on image analysis.

***MAC USERS*** It works great with ImageJ (public domain software (free) from NIH: [...] ) so don't worry that the capture software included is just for PC. Just plug it in to your computer, start ImageJ, File>Import>Video... and it works! (***Use 32-bit version of ImageJ. 64-Bit version doesn't yet support video import from USB.***)

***PC USERS*** Switch to Linux... It's just better than Windows... and you can't beat the price. (Kidding... The included software is fine.)
; )

***Linux Users*** Microscope ran fine under ImageJ in Ubuntu Linux and Red Hat Linux... Haven't tried any other versions of Linux yet.

***Educators*** -Can be used as a tool for fluorescence microscopy if you get a green laser-pointer, a sheet of "laser eye protection plastic" (the yellow orange stuff) and any plant tissues with big chloroplasts! The red fluorescence of the chloroplasts jumps out in a dark room. Point green laser at plant leaf from the side, focus on plant leaf surface, insert plastic sheet between microscope and leaf... et voila! Bright Red "easter eggs" -the chlorolplasts.

Can also double as a web cam -without autofocus!

First of all I supposed you get what you pay for,this was NOT an expensive unit. If you usage is looking at stamps or coins it MIGHT meet your expectations.
Second, I am generally considered very computer literate and this software for this unit was used under Win-XP sp3.The software was VERY poorly written. It did not function for certain features with any consistency. The unit itself would really not function beyond 10x and even then was not at expectations as the software simply was inconsistent in use. The level of reflection from the LED lights are much to overwhelming: a flat-black suface MUST be used to overcome this issue.
The unit DOES have almost a ridiculous focus knob. It cannot be used while the unit is in place. It also does not respond well to anything beyond 10x. However; this is the low-level Celestron digital. You get what you pay for. If all you are going to use this for is very low-level magnification and then at a low level of capture (640x480); it MAY be OK for your use. It is NOT totally useless, but it really needed much improved software and focusing. The base is also inappropriately lightweight and poorly made.
However, the software is SO badly written that features often did not work unless the software was closed and re-opened (& this is in WIN-XP!) It is simply my opinion that the software has a great deal of conflicts with other visual drivers stepping on it in memory and that is the basic reason for it's problems. Camera software drivers in memory may be the problem. I suspect that ANY camera software drivers or sound drivers are the major issue why this software has problems. IF this were to be used on a dedicated machine it may work fine. However dedicating a computer for a $39 10x unit is not the best use of equipment or practical.
