I currently have a 20x stero microscope for the last 20 years, which I enjoy using to not-very-seriously look at all sorts of things.
However, I am thinking of buying something with more magnification. My main criteria is that it needs to be portable, so that I can easily set it up elsewhere and "Wow" the kids in the extended family with things that I have found to be cool. So with this, I favour a microscope that works on batteries and is not stero. I am thinking seriously of this one: https://www.opticsce...=U#.XnFhN3IzaUk
I know I am somewhat of a novice, so any opinions re pros and cons will be appreciated.
Thanks in advance,
PS- I do not want a used microscope, but do want a fine focuser. That said, should I be looking for one that shines a light from above and not just below? I like that feature on my current microscope.
