A USB digital microscope with a simple but incredibly useful stand that allows students to make fine adjustments to the vertical height of the microscope and swivel the scope arm around a 360 degree range. This permits a greater level of viewing accuracy and stability. On either side of the stand there are two metal holders to lock your object in place and a printed ruler to help you get an approximate feel for the length of objects. The optics built into this digital microscope are excellent. The sharpness of texture on magnified objects is incredible to look at you will spend hours searching for things to magnify.
