The Celestron Laboratory Biological Microscope is an all-metal bodied microscope with fully coated glass optics and advanced features like a basic condenser and 5-position disc diaphragm at an affordable price. With both coarse and fine focus knobs, 3 objective lenses, an adjustable head (0° to 60°), and 5 specimen slides, it's a great entry-level microscope that will last for years.
A condenser concentrates and focuses light when using high-power objective lenses. Since these lenses tend to have very small apertures, a condenser combined with an iris diaphragm provides increased illumination and resolution. You can easily adjust brightness, contrast, depth of field, and evenness of illumination on your specimen. The fixed stage also comes with slide clips to secure samples.

It only took my 13 year old grandson a few minutes to get used to it so the lack of an integrated light source such as LEDs did not bother him. He had no problem using the mirror to focus light on his specimens. He loves it. (Posted on Sep 01, 2014)
