Konus Optics'Academy-2 Biological Monocular Microscope offers users a scientific microscope experience by providing four DIN achromatic objectives, a widefield eyepiece, a stable metal frame with fine and coarse focusing, and a movable stage with a sample bracket. The optical system has a 1000mm focal length and delivers a maximum 1000x magnification. You will see crisp images with low color distortion, thanks to the achromatic optics. To add proper illumination to your images, the scope has a bottom 0.5W white LED lamp, an Abbe condenser with a double lens, and an iris diaphragm. To enable you to emphasize certain details of your samples you are also provided with four color filters, in orange, white, light blue, and green.

Excellent value for a reasonably powerful microscope

Very satisfied. Im getting high resolution at all the different magnifications, even the x 100 with oil

Professional standard microscope for under $500 - brilliant!

I did a lot of research before purchasing this microscope as I didn't want to spend thousands but yet wanted a high quality instrument with professional features. This fits the bill for me. 4 high quality glass achromatic objectives, a smooth moving stage, LED adjustable light source, Abbe condenser and both coarse and fine adjustable height wheels for the stage. The body is fully metal and very stable. Great clarity when I viewed my own blood sample with the individual blood cells very clear at just 100X, let alone the 400X and 1000X. I highly recommend this compound microscope.
