The Celestron Labs S10-30N Stereo Microscope is the perfect specialized stereo microscope. With 10x and 30x magnification, this stereoscope produces a 3D image of your specimen at low powers. The S10-30N Stereo Microscope is ideal for observing subjects like insects, rocks, leaves, fossils, and more.
The classic stereo microscope’s ergonomic angled head reduces neck strain for more comfortable observing sessions. It uses natural or external light and features a reversible stage plate.
The binocular eyepieces adjust to accommodate the user's inter-pupillary distance. The left eyepiece has an integrated diopter adjustment control. Once you have the eyepieces in their desired position, use the rack-and-pinion focus knob to dial in precise focus. It is best to begin viewing a sample at low-power 10x and then switch to high-power as needed.
To accommodate large samples, you may need to expand your focus range by vertically sliding the head along the pillar stand to bring the image into sharp focus. For specimens that do not fit on the microscope base, like fossil bones, the Celestron Labs S10-30N microscope head can rotate around the pillar stand. Just make sure you counterweight the base when the head is in the opposite position.
The microscope is light and easy to carry. Bring this microscope on your day-to-day explorations, whether in the lab, on a desk, or in the field. It’s well-suited for hobbyists and students.
Your Celestron Labs S10-30N comes complete with two synthetic rubber flared eyepiece eyecups, a stage plate, and a dust cover. Install the angled rubber eyecups to reduce extraneous light that may interfere with your viewing. The stage plate comes in a reversible black/white, offering you different ways to observe to get the best detail. Protect your instrument with the dust cover when it is not in use.
