1. Buy a cheap office lamp that has a flex stand.
2. Remove the light fixture and extension cord.
3. Attach a 1" 2-hole pipe strap to the end of the light fixture by drilling a hole through the center of the strap and mounting it on the flex stand.
4. Attach the Dino-Lite to the pipe strap with zip ties.
Yes I know it won't look "professional" or there may be other ways to do it, but I went a cheap route. Total cost - under $8 and a little time.
The first aspect of the microscope that made it unsatisfactory for me was the lack of a proper stand. When viewing anything at ~25x magnification or higher (this scope goes up to 220x) the slightest change in position will cause the object to move in or out of focus. The articulating deskstop stand is not precise at all. After being moved into position, it tends to spring back slightly. Proper stands are available; the smaller stand costs $70 but only has 2 inches of clearance between the scope and the stage/table. This is not enough room to maneuver and manipulate an insect specimen mounted on a pin. The larger stand costs $100, which is as much as the scope itself.
Secondly, I found that the picture quality was not clear enough for me to see the detailed characteristics that I needed to. Even when I managed to focus the image as precisely as I could at the lowest magnification, there was still some fuzziness to the image.
Finally, when using magnifications of ~25x or higher, the specimen must be held very close to the lens. At even higher magnification, the specimen must even be inserted into the clear plastic guard that surrounds the lens and LED lights. This simply isn't viable. Larger insect specimens do not fit into this plastic piece, and any delicate specimens (and most of them are delicate) are at risk of being damaged.Read more ›
Its really good for what I need. It could be better if the light source could be changes (multi angle, and not just direct beam of light). But for the price its OK.
Hard is to know that the same equipment in Brazil cost USD 600.

the focal range is quite small but able to see things really well. also fast moving bugs/insects are hard to get in focus due to small focal range. Read morePublished 7 months ago by Amazon Customer

Excellent microscope. I've had two cheap imported ones at a third the price, but neither worked or lasted long. This is the real McCoy. Read morePublished 16 months ago by ChadSD
