The Electronic Antique Microscope

The iOptron® Electronic Antique Microscope is made according to designs of 19th century instrument models, but with the latest optical technology. You can observe and study plant and insect slices under either transmission light or reflecting light with variable magnification objectives. You

can also save micro images directly to your computer using the digital eyepiece. The straightforward design is ideal for the beginner student. Yet its classic look also makes it a beautiful and decorative piece to have around the home or office.
