Celestron Microscope Digital Kit MDK 40x-600x Camera Video USB - 44320

Rating: 5 out of 5
  • Currently 5.0/5.0

As a young child growing up I was always into science and technology. I always wanted to explore new things and find out how things worked and why they did what they did. I remember in elementary and middle school going into the Science Lab with my Science Teacher Mr. Barbin bursting with excitement anticipating what we would be exploring that afternoon.

Maybe I was one of the few children that was excited about science but when I saw that my nephew was showing the same excitement this year when he was telling me about walking into his science lab at school it brought me back to my childhood. Growing up my mom didn't have a lot of money to buy expensive toys and gifts but I do remember have a microscope. It was plastic, cheap feeling and didn't last for a very long time. I'd say that I got to use it about 3 or 4 times before the lens was damaged and the eyepiece would come into focus any more. With that being said I decided to do something special for my nephew. I wanted to buy him a microscope that he would be able to use at home while he looked at micro-organisms, cell walls, and other microscopic life forms that he would gather from our back yard.

After doing a little research online I found the Celestron Microscope model (44320) at a really good price and thought this would be the perfect gift for my nephew. You can use this microscope as a traditional microscope or as a digital microscope. There is a place to put a digital camera to take pictures of the organisms that you are looking at. The Celestron microscope features an eyepiece that zooms 10x to 20x and when paired with the microscopes 4x, 15x, or 30x objectives lens it produces magnification of 40x to 600x power. The Digital kit makes it easy to place a digital camera on the microscope and comes with 25 prepared slides. If you are looking for a great gift for the young explorer in your life then I would highly recommend getting him or her the Celestron Microscope Digital Kit MDK 40x-600x Camera Video USB model (44320). I give this a 5 star rating for the quality and features offered.
