Great value for the money!,
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Celestron 44102 400x Power Laboratory Biological Microscope (Electronics)
Admittedly, I bought this microscope for an unusual purpose, to turn into a robotic digital microscope. As a result, I've stripped the stage off it and glued a webcam without the lens to the eyepiece. But I could only do that because this is such a high-quality, well built item. The construction is sturdy, with metal parts where a cheaper microscope would be plastic. The optics are great, and components such as the focus rack turn smoothly. I don't know why anyone would buy one of those cheap kids microscopes, when you can get this one for so little money.

Can I see some of the images from your robocam? It would help plus it sounds really cool.
