Description

Highly recommended starter microscope for Elementary Schools and Home use

Summary

It is rare that Microscope.com uses superlatives, but the new Omano OM150-M LED is THE starter microscope of choice, for three reasons. Premium '185' objective lenses for improved resolution; coarse and fine focus control for significantly easier focusing and a sub $100 price. These features are typically missing from competitively priced microscopes and the combination makes for outstanding value and more important, a higher quality microscope that is more likely to engage the student since the frustrations of poor resolution and weak focusing are resolved. All metal construction and LED wireless illumination both serve to reinforce our recommendation since there are no wires for the kids to trip over.

Optics

All-glass optics and variable-intensity cool LED illumination offer the magnification required for Elementary and Middle School students. A wide field WF10x eyepiece combines with three premium '185' achromatic objective lenses, 4x, 10x and 40x to provide magnification of 40x, 100x and 400x. These objective lenses are a significant step-up in quality from competing sub-$100 microscopes. An eyepiece lock nut can be tightened to minimize the risk of loss and the head rotates through 360 degrees as required.

Stage & Focus

A large, flat top 90mm x 90mm stage offers two slide clips to secure specimen slides. Rack and pinion focus includes coaxial coarse/fine controls that are dual-sided for convenience and sized for smaller hands. A rack stop and slip clutch offer protection against inadvertent damage to microscope objectives or slides.

Condenser & Illumination

A six-position pinhole aperture provides for illumination control and the resolution (fine detail) produced is excellent. A filter holder is provided for optimal adjustments. LED llumination is provided by 3 AA batteries with variable light intensity with no wires for kids to trip over. The LED battery system also enables field trips for outddor observation.

Microscope Accessories

Includes dust cover, manual, 3 AA batteries, power cord.

Pack 1 Accessory Kit

"The World of the Microscope" book is, in our opinion, a wonderful and colorful introduction to microscopy. Practical, clearly worded and with dozens of illustrations, it provides numerous experiments and activities that range from simple to more complex. While many assume the book is aimed at children, we have found it to be an useful primer for both young and old alike. We highly recommend it.

5 Prepared Slides - Inspired by a permanent exhibition at The Natural History Museum in London, the Beastly Bits slide set includes 5 prepared slides from ONE of the three different groups: Beastly Bits (Animal), Blood & Gore (Human tissue) or Neat Eats (Vegetable). All are professional-grade, prepared slides designed to stimulate the imagination of children - and adults alike!
