Stereo microscopes are often used to study the surfaces of solid specimens or to carry out close work such as dissection, watch-making, circuit board manufacture or inspection, and are essential tools in entomology. Great working distance and depth of field are important qualities for this type of microscope, instead of magnification.
The BioScope is a great first microscope. With comfortable binocular eyepieces and twin objectives, small objects appear to leap up at you all in 3D. The 20x magnification and large, easy to adjust focus makes it perfect for smaller scientists – it has a powerful LED light, clips for holding slides in place, and a back plate that can flip between black and white for optimum contrast. Try looking at coins, flowers, and bugs up close! Instructions included - Learn about the microscopic world
