The OM118-M3 is an excellent monocular starter microscope and is combined here with a choice of 3 useful accessory options. The microscope includes 3 objectives (4x, 10x, 40x) and a WF10x eyepiece.


The Omano OM118-M3 is a high power monocular microscope used for viewing cellular structures on slides. The ocular is angled at an ergonomic 45 degrees and rotates through 360 degrees for flexible viewing. A single WF10x eyepiece combines with three achromatic objectives lenses (4x, 10x, 40x spring) for magnification levels of 40x, 100x and 400x. The objectives are set in a triple, forward-facing nosepiece.

Stage & Focus

The microscope includes a plain stage with two spring-loaded stage clips to retain the slides. An optional mechanical slide holder is available at a 44% discount when purchased at the same time as the microscope. We recommend this slide holder as it makes slide handling significantly easier for both younger children and teenagers alike.

Focusing includes rack and pinion design for durability and coaxial coarse and fine focus controls. We recommend coaxial coarse/fine focus controls since they enable 'eyes down' focusing. In other words, the viewer does not constantly need to look up in order to find the other focus control. This benefit is important in enhancing a student's experience and therefore in encouraging a more sustained interest in the microscope. Safety features include a rack stop to ensure that the stage does not impact with the objectives and thereby break the slides and a slip clutch control to mitigate the risk of damaging the focus controls through over extension.

Condenser & Illumination

The condenser is 0.65 N.A with iris diaphragm for optimal adjustments. Transmitted 20w incandescent illumination includes variable intensity.

SAVE MORE when buying the optional mechanical slide holder at the same time as the microscope. We recommend the slide holder for easier slide handling especially at higher magnifications of 400x and 1,000x.

Optional Summit Series Camera

All the Summit Series microscope cameras stand out for remarkable color resolution as well as a large color palette for improved color resolution and sensitivity. Critically, they are free from the smearing and blur that characterizes other systems in this price range. In addition, the included 0.5x reducing lens makes for an image that is significantly closer to that seen through the eyepieces with the naked eye. Robust documentation and measuring software is included with all the OptixCam cameras as well as four different mounts: C/CS Mount, 23mm eyepiece adapter, 30mm and 30.5mm collars so they will fit almost any microscope.

Other features include fast refresh rates, auto/ manual exposure and white balance control, full screen live imaging, time lapse photography and user-friendly, image capture. In short, these microscope cameras offer a well-designed package at an affordable price. We recommend them for any standard photomicrography application where the primary requirements are image capture and documentation.
