I'm nearing retirement age and had bought a couple inexpensive microscopes over the years. This is the first time my experience matched my pre-purchase imagination. This microscope is very easy to use and whether its used for fun or science, it is quite an addition to my daily entertainment.
Update 7/7/13: I now have a micro sd card and uploaded an image of a yellow blossom from a weed in my yard to customer's images at the top of this page. I'm really pleased with the abilities this microscope has for viewing and capturing the hidden world.
Other than not holding up to a 20x scope the celestron seemed pretty darn good. I'm giving it 3 stars because the 160x magnification claim doesn't hold up to a conventional 20x microscope. I'm sure one can measure 160x somewhere, but at the end of the day if no comparison is offered against traditional optical instruments I find it false advertising. If you're looking at specimens with a 10x hand lens then I believe that the celestron will get you more details (besides other benefits such as capturing photos, of course), but compared to a 20x binocular microscope it looses out. Too bad.
