This is a great microscope for teaching microscopy, learning during vacation, in the field, or as a beginning microscope. The high power magnification results in a limited field view (as with any compound microscope) so although handheld these scopes are best used with slides or very slim objects. This model is particularly useful because it has a slide stand that holds the slides securely in place. An LED light provides a bright, clear image.
