Compound Microscopes from Amazon.com
Compound microscopes use an array of precise lenses to gather and focus light in such a way that high magnification of microscopic objects is possible. Depending on the configuration of eye pieces and objective lenses, professional and consumer grade compound microscopes are capable of up to 2000x magnification. Hobbyists can enjoy stunning glimpses of microscopic organisms and structures ranging from aquatic plants and animals to geological specimens and even individual cell structures.
