If you drive a Lexus, or wish you did, this is the microscope for you. This is a fine clinical quality binocular instrument of excellent quality. Binocular viewing is easier on the eyes - no squinting. Coaxial focusing knobs for fine and coarse adjustments, and a fourth objective lens on the rotating nose-piece for up to 1000X magnification to identify questionable parasites and eggs. This microscope's fine optics allow clear views even at high magnification. With the additional 16X eyepiece you can even go to 1600X for very fine viewing. This fine instrument also has halogen lighting for the brightest, clearest illumination available. If you want the best at a very reasonable cost, this is it.
