Celestron 44108 Professional Compound Microscope 1500x with Halogen Lamp is a large heavy duty professional level microscope best suited for very serious users of analysis and research. These Microscopes come with 10x and 15x wide field eyepieces, and a Quadruple Objective Nosepiece with 4x, 10x, 40x, and 100x objective lenses. These lenses and eyepieces combine to give this Microscope magnifications of 40x, 60x, 100x, 150x, 400x, 600x, 1000x, and 1500x. The Celestron Professional Biological Microscope 1500 has a binocular head with two eyepieces, one for each eye. The binocular head is generally more comfortable than a monocular type head. The head also rotates 360° which allows comfortable viewing at any position, plus enables others to share the view without moving the microscope.
The Celestron 1500 Biological Microscope has a built-in Halogen Lamp that provides a very bright and concentrated white light to illuminate a specimen. Controlling the amount of illumination are the microscope 's Abbe condenser and Iris Diaphragm. The Abbe condenser allows the user to concentrate the light cone and regulate the light, while the Iris Diaphragm adjusts the amount of light passing through the slide to optimize resolution, contrast, and sharpness. The stage a slide rests on is a large mechanical stage of 132mm x 140mm (5.2" x 5.5") and comes with stage clips. Centering slide specimens could not be easier with knobs controlling two axes for precise movements, which is critical for high power viewing. Also, focusing on this compound light microscope is very convenient thanks to the coaxial control, where both the course and fine focus knobs are on one large control.
The quality construction of Celestron Microscopes gives it lasting durability and stability. The Celestron Professional Biological Microscope Halogen 44108 is made entirely of metal. All optical components are made out of glass and are fully coated to eliminate image degrading, reflections, and glare. The Celestron Professional High Power Microscope w/ Halogen Lamp comes with five prepared slides so you can begin enjoying right out of the box. These High Power Microscopes also come with three filters; Blue, Green, and Yellow that are useful for enhanced contrast and color correction. Lastly, this Compound Microscope by Celestron comes with a two year limited warranty. These features of the Celestron Professional Compound Microscope 1500x Halogen Lamp - 44108 make this professional level microscope best suited for serious analysis and research.
