1.0 out of 5 stars Celestron 44302-A piece o' junque, April 9, 2012
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Celestron 44302 Deluxe Handheld Digital Microscope 2MP (Electronics)
I purchased this about 10 days ago and it arrived today. I hooked it up as directed. On a mac, there were no drivers or software to install. Quite to my surprise and dismay it didn't work. Following their directions lead me nowhere. Only after searching their website, for half and hour, for any hope did I find a statement that it might not be compatible with a mac and that they were working on it.

After calling the company I was informed that there is a fix in the works but as of this date 4/9/12 there is no release date. In other words it could be this afternoon or January 2013 or December 2014. The tech support people were borderline useless. Apparently it is Mac compatible - maybe - on certain Macs, but not all, the fix will be ready on a third full moon in Decemuary.

I am ticked. I purchased this because it was listed here as being mac compatible, it didn't specify it wouldn't work on certain macs. Bad Amazon.

Don't feel that they are discrimination against Macs - it dies the same "install and work one time" routine on any version of Windows that I can find. The drivers are crap and I haven't been able to find a standalone freeware video driver that will work with the camera.
