no, it is a real time image--really what it is is a macro digital camera with a fixed focus

Answer:
Celestron 5 MP actually has the resolution of its shots 5 - 12 megapixels. Setting to 5 mpx is optimal IMHO. The size and resolution of your computer display is very important when we speak of the microscope magnification.

Setting to 5 mpx is optimal IMHO. The size and resolution of your computer display is very important when we speak of the microscope magnification. If you watch your shot on the small, build-in screen (300x200 pixels) you, of course, cannot have great magnification (anyway I enjoy it). A 5 megapixels picture taken by the microscope must be viewed on the screen with comparable resolution (wide * height ~= 5000000 pixel). If you have it and the microscope zoom is maximized you will have 200x magnification and even more. I can't say more precisely now. IMHO, quality of the microscope optic is good, and shots are nice. Please, pay attention that this microscope is designed to look AT objects (light falls on the object). When you use a classic microscope you use transillumination (light behind the object). So if you want to look at plant cells you probably should search for a classic type of a microscope. In general, I've got what I wanted. The only bad thing I met is that the microscope software provided on the CD disk refused to work at my Windows XP SP3. But anyway you can connect the microscope to a computer via USB and treat it like a flash drive. In "My computer" folder you will have Microscope Icon, and you can run the windows master for taking shot from microscope, directly on your computer. see less

Answer:
The light source is above, not below the specimen, so if you need light shining up through the slide to view your specimen, then the answer would be "no". I use slides as well as free standing specimens that need light shining down onto them, so this microscope works well for my needs.

Answer:
have never used it for that but it is used a lot by coin and stamp folks so assume you could. Like all microscopes it has a focal plane but the image you see will depend upon how clear the plastic cover through which you are looking is.

Answer:
I may the wrong person to answer. As far as I can tell from using the unit and the User's Manual, you can not take intervaled photographs nor program the Celestron 5MP. The unit is excellent. I see it getting into more and more hands for studies. Someone WILL find a way to do it.

Answer:
Yes,yes,and don't know. It is a five pixel image (I think) so don't any more. This is not a lab research device--best for introducing kids to a new world and science projects. Some stamp and coin folks use it to see detail better---entomologists vac see detail better for ID.
