I've noodled around with my student-level binocular Amscope but haven't been entirely thrilled. Hard to bring things to a tight focus or provide adequate lighting.
This Olympus EH trinocular is available locally and has 10x, 20x, 40x, and 100x phase contrast objective lenses. Is this a good instrument for a beginner? Is it a good buy at $250 - $300?
It looks very clean and well-maintained.
I'd like to look at amoeba and all that cool pond soup stuff, and even take some photos. Could I attach my Canon T3i DSLR with an adapter?
