For a serious compound microscope, look for a model with both coarse and fine focus, built-in illumination, light control via an iris and condensor and a mechanical stage. If you need to keep the budget down and/or don't have access to power, a model with a mirror is acceptable, but insist on a model with a fine focus control. It is very difficult to use high powers on a microscope without a fine focus.

Try the excellent LOMO MULTISCOPE BMH4-BF binocular microscope (best buy). These are the types of microscopes found in the typical college science or research lab and are the most used type of microscope in microbiology and medicine. They require you to use and prepare slides.

My son, college age, is studying medicine and I would like to purchase a high quality biological microscope as a gift for him. I know nothing about such things and am wondering if you could make some recommendations, including price and details (magnifications, etc.). I do know that he prefers scopes with a viewing lens for both eyes rather than just one.

Thanks for your consideration.
