Home and Hobby

This category includes more affordable stereo microscopes for Home use. With good quality optics that get the job done reliably over many years, they are robust while offering exceptional value.

For your convenience, we have divided this category into three sub-categories:

  • Kids
  • Hobbyist
  • Advanced Hobbyist

Kids enjoy stereo microscopes because they relate more to macro specimens such as bees, insects, flowers and crystals. Within a few seconds, a child can be gazing at the wonders of a fly's eye. Expect cries of "Wow, that's so cool!"

For the more advanced home microscopist, we have selected some better microscopes that are designed to last a lifetime and which are backed by lifetime limited warranties. Brands include Meiji Techno, Motic and our value house brand, Omano Microscopes.
