Meade Microscope 900x w/ 19-piece Accessory Kit

I would like to know the difference between this microscope and a Meade 9260 that you also have listed. This microscope goes up to 900x magnification, while the other, which is more expensive, only goes to 400x. Thanks for your help.

Hi

Meade Microscope 900x is a plastic toy. It features 900x, but optical quality is so poor that it cannot be used at that magnification. The Meade 9260 Microscope, by contrast is all metal and is at least useable above 100x.
