This review is from: The Usborne Complete Book of the Microscope: Internet-Linked (Paperback)
The many, undoubtedly beautiful, photos are mostly from electronic scan microscopes, and are computer-color enhanced. They are indeed gorgeous, but the average child will be greatly disappointed that what she or he sees through their own optical microscope bears little resemblance to these showpieces. Better if many more of the photos were representative of what will be seen under "normal", amateur, home conditions.
