Clip this little lighted scope onto your smart phone and use the phone's zoom feature to show images (and take photos) up to 30X magnification. Our Optics Guru Paul says it has no business working this well for six bucks. Measures 2-5/8" x 1-1/4" and comes with (3) replaceable button-cell batteries for the light.
Good things come in (2) different small
packages. Our pocket microscopes are compact and perfect for a clear,
close look at stamps, coins, flora, insects or assorted minutiae. The
30X version measures 5-3/4" x 1-5/8" x 3/4" in black plastic with a
focus knob, on/off switch, small LED for illumination, and a vinyl
carrying case. Requires (2) "AA"s. The 60X version is a microscopic
3-1/4" x 1-3/16" x 3/4" and has a built-in white LED illuminator powered
by (3) coin-cell batteries that are included. Magnifies from 60-100X,
with coarse- and fine-focus knobs, and has a vinyl carrying case.
This is the answer to your prayers, battery-confusion-wise. The 5-5/8" dia wheel has 44 slots and holes cut to exact size of every available button-cell and coin-cell battery for watches, remote controls, calculators, cameras, mini flashlights, audio devices, key fobs, etc. Slip the battery through the smallest hole it will go through in the plastic template and actually know what size to buy without having to put the old one under a microscope to read the numbers you can't read.
Microscope glassware for examination of
blood, pond water, mold, and other minutiae. All of the microscope
slides are optically clear glass 26mm x 76mm (about 1" x 3"), between
1mm and 1.2mm thick. The well slides, of course, have a concave well to
hold a drop of liquid. Our each is a package of (12) well slides, or a
box of (72) standard slides with ground or beveled edges. Cover glasses
are the smaller and very thin pieces of glass used as the top of the
glass slide sandwich. They are often used temporarily by simply dropping
them onto a drop of liquid to flatten and spread it and to minimize
evaporation. More confident microscopists will cement them in place to
permanently preserve a specimen. Our each is a package of (100) cover
glasses 18 mm square, #1 thickness (0.13mm to 0.17mm). If you need one,
you need both.
