5.0 out of 5 stars Amazing performance for the price, August 28, 2015
Amazing performance for the price. I use this to measure dust particles adhering to glass slides. It can easily resolve particles of 20 micron diameter. Smaller than that and noise starts to become indistinguishable from particles, but perhaps with more careful lighting the noise could be reduced and resolving power improved further. Strangely, the image resolution seems (for dust particles anyway) to be better turning off the LEDs and bright room lights, and having only muted room lights. Have also used it successfully for water contact angle measurement.

I took images of dust particles on a glass slide using this unit and a professional lab microscope. I attach both images - the lab one shows the scale. The Celeston can readily make out particles of ~10-20 micron, with a nicely contrasting black background. Obviously not as clearly as the lab machine.

It's not clear in the instructions, but you can press the microscope right up to an object (ie. the clear plastic part). Handy because you don't have to fiddle with focus then, you just set it once and then can go from object to object placing it in contact.

If you are looking for image analysis software, I recommend imageJ. Unfriendly and complex but free, powerful, and a large user community.

By the way what arrived in the box was a Celeston product. Celeston branding and software. Which is great, their website is better presented than you tend to get with no-name Chinese goods.

Does what it's meant to. Feels well made. Not for stripping fine wires though, like circuit board jumper wires.

I've had many Timex Ironman watches, and greatly prefer the ones with fabric straps like this one. Face is not too big, not too small. Survives constant immersion in the ocean.

Happy with it, but not super powerful or long-lasting battery. Good value for money though, at the price. And cordless is brilliant.

1.0 out of 5 stars Devoid of actual content, November 21, 2014
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
Very disappointed. I fully agree with the principle (we think and communicate in stories), but this book is superficial - it doesn't give you any facts, information, research or instruction that illuminate storytelling in a remotely interesting way or allow you to use it more effectively. It is basically 150 pages of this guy telling you "storytelling is an inherent part of being human", like we didn't already know. I normally I give away books I don't like, but this one is so vacuous it went in the recycling bin.

No problems with this product. The copper contacts did melt off occasionally, but that was my inexperienced soldering
