LOMO P-111 Modular Brightfield Microscope

Of the dozens of microscopes that you guys sell, can you help me with a recommendation for a 10 and 12 year old budding scientists - well lit, easy to see, maybe with a storage box and slides included, etc. less than $100 but decent quality. Many thanks.
Jean Wnuk.

Hi Jean

For the best buy in a beginner's microscope, try the LOMO P-111 Modular Brightfield Microscope.

This microscope sells for less than $100, but it has absolutely nothing in common with other microscopes in its price range. It is a Russian (not Chinese) made stripped down research grade microscope without a binocular head, mechanical stage, built-in illumination, or oil objective. However, it does have dual focusing, an iris light control like an expensive model and it uses the same high quality eyepieces and objectives as much more expensive LOMO microscopes. Best of all, it can be upgraded at a later date with illumination, mechanical stage and oil objectives - something you cannot do with microscopes costing many times this price. It is priced low only because we purchased this model in bulk from LOMO in Russia. This is easily the best buy in a beginner's microscope on the market.

For a good slide set, try the Meade #904 25 Piece Prepared Microscope Slides Set.
