Recommended Posts

Ok im looking to buy one but not them high price ones just one from $20 to $40 or so.


I found a few but i dont know what one is good enough for me. I dont know if 100x is better than 50x or if 900x is better than 600x i just dont understand that part.

Really depends on what you are interested in doing with it... for biological samples (my bias) 5-20x is all the more you need.


Beware of scopes that advertise large magnification. So many other things are more important---eye relief, for example.


See if you can get one of those USB-enabled scopes with a camera built in. They look like toys but are actually pretty good.
