The Celestron Infiniview
LCD digital microscope is one of the most versatile microscopes in the market that
has been shown to be particularly ideal for middle school and high school
students. With a combination of a zoom microscope and 5MP digital camera, the
Celestron Infiniview allows students to observe a wide range of 3D
specimens/objects, which may include among others; insects, coins, stamps and leaves
in amazing detail.
The Built-in 5MP digital camera in place will allow the user to capture and save high resolution images of the specimen for future use. In addition to the camera, the Celestron Infiniview also comes with a composite video output through which the viewing can be shared on larger screens for everyone to see.
Using the USB port, the user can
also download the image and videos being viewed on to the PC. This is in
addition to the microSD slot that allows for images/videos to be saved on to
the memory card.
As well as a full color 3.5 inch LCD screen, the microscope also comes with a high quality 5 element IR cut glass lens that allows for sharper images, which is one of its greatest strengths. Using the shutter trigger at the base, the stage can be easily adjusted when viewing different size subjects, which allows for more clarity of the images.
Although it allows for a small magnification of between 4x and 160x, it is excellent for low-power observation of 3D specimens.
With the adjustable stage, it becomes easier to observe sizes of the specimen under observation. While the LCD screen only allows for the maximum magnification of 160x, magnification also increases to 200x when a computer monitor is used.
The Celestron Infiniview
microscope also comes with a Rechargeable Lithium-Ion battery, which eliminates
the need for external power. As such, it gives the user portability given that
the battery can last for about 2 hours. Students can therefore use it in the
field observing a wide range of specimens.
Some of the other accessories included are:
Celestron Infiniview LCD Digital Microscope may not have very high magnification, it is particularly ideal for younger users who had been using hand lenses. This is because it allows for relatively higher magnification as well as the ability to take short video clips and still pictures of the specimen.
The fact that it can also be
used with any type of screen is an added advantage for users given that it can
either be connected to a television screen or a PC monitor. Generally, it will
be a great way to introduce younger students to microscopy.
