Microscopes

Microscopes
Microscopes can open you up to a fascinating new world! There can be a lot of technical information supplied on microscopes but the following is a simple summary to help you choose the best microscope for your budget and usage.

Broadly microscopes can be divided into two categories, Biological (also known as compound) or high power and Stereo or low power


For children, hobbyists and general use, Biological are most popular as one can see the truly "invisible" things like blood cells, amoebas and bacteria. They have their own light source and different magnification options usually between 40X and 400X.
 
Stereo sometimes referred to as dissecting microscopes give an erect, three dimensional perspective making it ideal to examine
specimens such as coins, stamps, whole insects, fabric weaves, insect wings, sand, soil and tiny electrical components.  This microscope has a low magnification power up to about 10X-40X, often uses two separate eyepieces with two objectives, which creates the visual effect of depth perception.

Generally speaking, if you require lower magnification and your sample is 3 dimensional, or in particular you wish to manipulate, dissect or re work it, a low power is the best choice.
