These Microscope slides are an essential asset for anyone who purchases or owns a Microscope.
Here are some reviews from people who already own these slides:
Celestron has taken the typical Chinese laboratory prepared slides, corrected many of the spelling errors in the listing that comes with the box and packed the wooden box in a nice printed cardboard box. The selection is more interesting than the three other ’100 slide’ collections that we have, but the quality of the slides is the same. Only about forty of the slides are duplicates of our other sets, and ten of those are different enough to merit keeping both prepared specimens. I like the wooden box, and Celestron’s slide labels are better than the other three sets because they have the slide numbers located at the very top of the label (some sets do not number the slides themselves).
ViTiny Pro10 Review by Oliver Walker
My Overall Rating: Available on Amazon for $289 here.
This is a very sweet gadget. At first I was intrigued but the ViTiny Pro10 is one of the lightest, most powerful and compact mobile microscopes produced. This palm-size microscope does not require any additional monitors to view subjects, giving the freedom to take it anywhere you need magnification.
You can buy this portable microscope from this link here.
The unique Pro10 with its full color display allows you to view images in high magnification, take standard photos, record videos, and output on a PC or TV. It can also be used as a web camera. This microscope is surprisingly easy to use and has good battery life.

I got this microscope to use as a tool for my home-schooled daughter. It is a great learning tool. I have not had any problems with it (as indicated by other reviewers for a different model.)
It is nice to be able to view slides with my daughter as she is studying them. The pictures the camera produces are wonderful.
The traditional features of the microscope are good – lighting, stage movement, filters, lens. Even my husband, who is a pathologist and looks through a microscope everyday of his life is impressed with this one!
This is a fine, modern microscope for the price.
This microscope is great for a home schooling tool. Is a sturdy microscope which is easily used and your work can easily be saved on your PC.

This microscope is brand new in factory sealed box. Its retail value is $900.
CUSTOMER REVIEW – D. Wiedemeier
Purchased as a present. I was looking for simple microscope of decent quality. What arrived in the box was a full featured, solid, school/lab grade microscope. My 14 year old son put it together without help. I’ve used it and I’m quite impressed with price vs. value!
I wish it came with a catalog of accessories for upgrade.
It offers eight settings of magnification power, 40x, 80x, 100x, 200x, 400x, 800x, 1000x & 2000x.
Who is this microscope for?
It comes with a binocular sliding head, mechanical stage, coarse and fine focusing system. It is an ideal instrument for biological, bacteriological and pharmaceutical researches. This microscope is made by the same technicians and on the same production line as optical instruments for Leica, Zeiss, Nikon and Olympus. It is brand new in factory sealed box.

This microscope is simply of a professional standard. A microscope for the pros, the 1500x Professional Biological Microscope gives you plenty of viewing options, complete with 2 of 10x and 2 of 15x wide field eyepieces and 4 different objective lenses.
An extra large mechanical stage allows ample working space, and knobs control both axes for easy centering of specimen slides.
This Microscope is for:
This scope has been excellent. It came in secure packaging from Amazon, each eye piece and lens was well packed inside of it, and everything arrived promptly.
I had read the last reviewers post about difficult seeing things above 600x, but like the comments say underneath it, you have to use oil at 1500x. The lens piece actually says “OIL” on it so you don’t get confused.
The 5 pack of slides was fine with it, and I also picked up a 25 pack as well to go with it. They all look great at even 1500x magnification. I’ve only done minimal experimentation with making my own slides (cheek scrape, blood, etc) and it’s easy to do (You may need to get a few extra liquids to get the right contrast to your sample).
This scope is not the cheapest, but you get what you pay for when it comes to optics of any kind. The controls are really easy to use on it, it’s easy to fine tune, changing slides is easy, and there’s a nice hard stop so you never have to worry about sending your longest lens through a slide on accident
The Celestron 500x Power Biological Microscope is an intermediate-level biological microscope that features an electric illuminator that provides direct control of light.
The Abbe condenser and iris diaphragm are supplied to concentrate and adjust for more or less illumination. A mechanical stage is standard equipment with knobs controlling both axes for easy centering of specimen slides. Other features include 10x and 12.5x eyepieces, 4x, 10x, and 40x objective lenses, fully-coated glass optics, all-metal body with monocular head, five prepared slides, and coarse and fine focusing knobs.
Where cheaper microscopes of a comparable price typically utilize plastic components and flimsy construction, this microscope is precision made with metal components, and includes an Abbe condenser and Iris diaphragm, which beginner scopes rarely include. And it’s amazingly powerful, up to 500X to reveal details you never knew existed.
I was pleasantly surprised when the Celestron 44104 arrived. I have not used a microscope since high school biology. I had always wanted to have a microscope, but could never justify the cost. This year, while purchasing presents for others, I decided to buy this for me.
I am glad I did. This instrument is a good quality ‘heavy’ type of device and comes with the electric illumination device. Funny, I did well with just the included mirror light up the slides.
To save money, check out the Celestron 44102. As near as I can tell, that is this model minus = 12.5x eye piece, blue filter, and the AC light thing.
