Product Description

From the Manufacturer

The professional-level Celestron LCD Digital Microscope Deluxe is a touchscreen LCD microscope with advanced features at an affordable price. Offering 4 fully achromatic lens objectives, a mechanical stage, 3.5 inch TFT full color touchscreen, 5 MP camera, and 1 GB of internal memory, taking high-resolution images of specimens has never been easier.

The LCD screen rotates 180 degrees so you can easily share your discoveries with others. With magnification from 40x to 400x (and up to 1600x with digital zoom), it's ideal for viewing a range of cellular specimens on slides.

Great for the discriminating professional or serious hobbyist, the LCD Digital Microscope Deluxe with touchscreen is a tool that is well suited for labs, schools, and research institutions.

Product Description

Celestron has developed the first digital LCD microscope with a 3.5" touch screen panel that is also rotatable 180 Degree for sharing the view on the screen. Also comes with a built-in digital camera, so you can take snapshots or video using the built-in flash memory or use an optional SD Card and then later upload your images to your computer.

As a home schooler, I am always collecting bits of technology to implement the learning curve of the bright little minds. This scope perfectly overcomes the limitations caused when your students have glasses or sight problems. They can gather around it and turn the LCD to share discoveries.

The build quality is satisfactory, every function works as described. Some reviews claimed to see dark spots on the screen. I found nothing of the sort. There were some dark bubbles in the thin plastic film which was screen protection in shipping. Maybe they didn't know to remove the plastic film? As with any lab tool you have to keep the lenses and slide environment very clean.

Gripes: The largest magnifier has to get VERY close to the slide to magnify contents. This means that the light from the top LED gets obscured. This somewhat limits the ultra magnification to things like thinned liquids or transparent objects that can be back lit. Other scopes have a moving stage area instead of little metal arms that this one has to move the slides around. The movement left and right or front to back of the slides is not very fluid and feels like cheap plastic bushings or something.

Likes: The carry case is well made with a shoulder strap. The seven included slides provide good contrasts of color and sample variety. I will be purchasing more along with some blanks. We were able to identify and view individual blood cells, bacterium, plant cells and the like. With some practice we got scary up-close with a sugar ant. In the LCD Deluxe Digital Microscope, Celestron has nailed a good balance of features to educational value.

I got this microscope to use as a tool for my homeschooled daughter. It is a great learning tool. I have not had any problems with it (as indicated by other reviewers for a different model.)

It is nice to be able to view slides with my daughter as she is studying them. The pictures the camera produces are wonderful.

The traditional features of the microscope are good - lighting, stage movement, filters, lens. Even my husband, who is a pathologist and looks through a microscope everyday of his life is impressed with this one!

This is a fine, modern microscope for the proce.

I did not purchase my Celestron 44345 microscope from Amazon but I thought I'd post a tip here for those considering this item. I originally purchased this microscope from Costco dot com. They had a great price but the scope had several problems: 1) the lower light flickered (apparently a common problem with Celestron microscopes) and that affected the LCD display, 2) the LCD display had problems with red, so that viewing red items caused pixels in the display to flicker, and 3) the stylus for the touchscreen was broken. I contacted Celestron and they advised to return the scope for a replacement. The feature set for this microscope is pretty unique and I wanted to find a replacement that worked, but based on the feedback here on Amazon regarding the regular (non-deluxe) version of the Celestron LCD microscope I was reluctant to order another sight-unseen because the flickering illumination issue seems to have affected quite a few. Unfortunately, I am in a state that does not have any Celestron microscope dealers where I could have inspected a scope, but I was able to contact a dealer in Oceanside CA who graciously tested one out to ensure it did not have any issues. It's a beautiful device and I am glad to have it. So, the tip is simply to consider a similar strategy if this scope interests you -- find a seller who will check it out. BTW, one of the included slides is an apple and that works well for the "red" test.

I purchased this microscope for my son's 11th birthday 9we are home schooling him) While I was not expecting a laboratory grade instrument for 250$, I would at LEAST like it to do what ot said it would in the description! the only things on it that worked were the 2 illumination lamps. The LCD screen was either black or white...no touch-screen...nothing. I had to call the company 7 (SEVEN)! times to get them to replace it with a new one. Every time I tried to access technical support,they had a recording saying they were closed (i was within their buisness hours). When I recieve the replacement scope,I will write another review,wether it works or not. This may be the last Celestron product I ever buy.

ive had two of the Celestron LCD Deluxe Microscopes. the first one was returned because just out box i turned LCD monitor on and could not turn off. so i had to unplug the device, which would not turn back on. so i returned for replacement. now ive just received replacement model and the touch screen does not respond on this one regardless of suggested methods of resetting the machine. so, obviously this is a poor design. hopefully i can return for refund and use for less expensive higher quality microscope camera, notice the resolution on the Celestron LCD Microscope is rather low and can not be interchanged nor replaced.

We just received this unit and it never worked. Called Celestron and they think that the LCD is not working and that we should return it. So back in the box it goes. Also, there seems to be a little wear on the bottom of this unit that would indicate that it was previously returned or sat on a retail shelf for some time. Either way, it was marketed as new not 'like new' or 'previously owned' or even refurbished.

Fortunately we ordered well ahead of our son's birthday so we have time to come up with something else. Also, Amazon's return process is really quick and easy. We'll have to see how long it takes to get our refund.

I am still excited about this microscope as a fun educational tool with a lot of flexibility, but haven't gotten a chance to see it in action yet. If you're on the fence about getting this just make sure that you leave enough time for a backup plan in case it does not work.
