My son set up the scope for his daughter and said it was a "tricky" set-up. Once up and going his daughter (my grand-daughter) found the microscope absolutely fascinating. She also got a Celestron telescope for Xmas and likes it better (so far), but has told me that the microscope will come into more use once Spring is here.
Pros: can view the microscope slides on the computer screen
Cons: without help she could have not set up the scope and software
