Celestron Microscope Digital Kit MDK - 44320

by Legacy Reviewer, Verified Owner Written on June 13, 2014
the older model was excellent. However, with the newer model the we received last year, we had problems with the bottom light illuminator. Very bad design and not practical to use. You must go back and adapt the old design- it was perfect.
I have recommende this microscope to many teachers/instructors to use. Please fix the bottom light feature. Thanks
Pros: excellent for teaching
Cons: problem with the bottom light ...
Would recommend: Yes

Budget conscious scope has recreational value

by Legacy Reviewer, Verified Owner from United States, FL Written on November 24, 2012
If you are looking for an entry level scope. This is a good one. I originally purchased it to set up some wet slides at work as I wanted to analyze some plaque samples. The overall kit would be more usable if it had a more powerful light. The optics were quite clear but the adjustments a little too coarse for professional use. While I did not get the intended results at work once I brought it home and introduced it to my children it paid for itself in spades. A great tool to introduce young ones to the very small world all around us. I've had this for over a year now and my 11 year old still collects samples to analyze under the scope. I guess that was it's intended purpose all along. I recommend it in this capacity.
Pros: Good value for price
Cons: Limited to recreational use ...
Would recommend: Yes

There is no 800 number to call if you have questions. Emailed company had to wait 3 days to get back to me and still not able to resolve problem. Now I have to pat to ship ity back to the company to get a new one. Too much headache for something that sounded to be a good product. Was not impreaased

Grand-daughter likes it

by Legacy Reviewer, Verified Owner from United States, SC Written on January 13, 2011
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...

Pros: Decent image quality, easy to use...
