I was a little worried that I couldn’t see too well with my eyeglasses, but I can see the subjects just fine through my glasses or without even. Picking it up for the first time, I was expecting it to be heavier, seems to do a good job all the same. I'm looking forward to observing the lifecycle of the brine shrimp project, but I haven't gotten to it yet. I really like how far the scope goes up so that it can focus on larger objects like rocks or fingerprints.
The condenser lens comes out easily, so make sure to be careful when unboxing. Depending on what you are viewing the light source from below may still be too bright to see details. We found that if you take a small piece of wax paper and place under the glass piece it diffuses the light more and makes the specimen easier to see. There are many slides that come in a plastic case and most are already setup for viewing. (Examples: onion skin, fungi, earthworm cross section, etc.) The earthworm slide is one I would recommend diffusing more with the wax paper to see the individual layers of intestine and epidermis.
This set also comes with a vile of Brine Shrimp eggs and a hatchery. The instructions to hatch the eggs are in the instruction manual. It's quite simple to make the saltwater using bottled water and salt without iodine. The eggs are supposed to hatch 24-48hrs later, but we were unable to see any hatch after waiting four full days. After research, there are many factors that could cause the eggs to not hatch, such as water was too cold, too many eggs, etc. You are instructed to place the hatchery in a window sill and it has been cold outside. With the shallow water for the eggs I fear the water may have gotten too cold. I will start the hatching process over very soon.
The microscope is battery-operated and requires 2 AA batteries that are not included. Otherwise, this is a near complete starter kit for a teenager who is interested in science. I have a 7 and 6 yr old that enjoy looking through the microscope with our help. They love to find things when outside and bring in to get a closer look! Thanks for watching!
Pros: Very easy to focus, portable
Cons: My kids struggle a little with the spacing of the eye pieces. It's not a deal breaker, but they seem to think they should be able to squeeze them closer together. This hasn't prevented them from using it, but they all (ages 4, 6, 7) have mentioned it while using it.
Other comments - the depth of field is somewhat limited to about 1 inch tall objects. Not a deal breaker, but if you find a big rock or want to look at your shoe tread, you will have to make sure it's in that size.
I would totally buy this again and as a gift for cousins. We haven't tried making our own slides, but in all honesty, this wasnt what we planned ot us it for anyhow.
