Microscope for 9 year old

Postby Phil I on Mon Nov 19, 2007 8:13 pm

Looking for a quality microscope for my 9 year old that she can use to view rocks and slide specimens. Under $200. Any ideas?

Hi

That's two microscopes.

For rocks, you will need a stereo microscope such as the Konus Opal.

For slides, you need a compound microscope, such as the Celestron 44104

For a beginners guide on how to choose your first micrscope, see my article, Microscope Guide for Beginners. This explains the differences in the two types of microscopes.

Hi

Nothing difficult at all. All you need is immersion oil and a bottle is supplied with any microscope equipped with an oil immersion lens.
