A very versatile stereoscope microscope that permits you to change from a widefield image at 10x magnification to the close-up detail of 30x magnification simply by rotating the objective turret. The extra rugged fixed-arm stand has both incidental and transmitted illumination. Built in high-resolution digital camera offers 1.3 megapixel live image resolution at 1240 x 1024.  Supplied with Motic Images software, which allows the user to view, capture, label, manipulate and measure images.  The microscope is fully functional, independent of the camera application.
