Celestron verses Konus microscope

Postby mtb54703 on Mon Nov 24, 2008 3:52 pm

Just how much the same or how much different are the Konux 5304/5325 and the Celestron 44106?

Thanks

Very little. Both made in China with similar features.

As I see it - for $150 you get the following on the Celestron:

2 eyepieces on the Celestron (10x + 12.5x)
a set of color filters
LED bulbs verses halogen bulb

Hi

An LED usually burns a little cooler, but have had reports on the Celestron that the LED is actually quite hot. May or may not be a factor for your application.
