Top Customer Reviews
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.
In other words, this is a very flexible piece of hardware for education/entertainment.
The only flaw I've found is the lack of info about the microscope stage.
My personal very rough measurements are:
At 40x, the width of the field is roughly [est. eyeball +/- 10% ???] 1.5mm or 1,500 microns. That would translate with other objectives, to
40x screen width 1,500 microns
100x screen width 600 microns
200x screen width 300 microns
400x screen width 150 microns
600x screen width 100 microns
Other rough estimates: [Micrometers = microns]
One turn of the vertical knob is about 20mm/20,000 micrometers.
One turn of the horizontal knob is about 3mm/3000 micrometers.
So you can probably use those dimensions to guess actual size of microorganisms when measured with Photoshop or others.
My rating is a 5 for hardware and software. It loses a full point for absence of info on measurements. I did them myself, but take them with a grain of salt. Celestron should add these specs to theirs.
