The Celestron Handheld Digital Microscope Pro is a user-friendly, low-power microscope equipped with a 5.0 MP sensor. This Celestron microscope is perfect for capturing both photos and videos of various specimens.

An adjustable LED illuminator ensures that specimens are well-lit and visible. The adjustable stand provides stability, crucial for capturing clear images at high magnifications. This makes the handheld digital microscope an excellent tool for hobbyists and professionals. It is useful in fields such as entomology, quality control, medical investigation, research, and forensic documentation, where detail and accuracy are essential.

The digital microscope uses a 5-element IR cut high-quality glass lens. With magnification ranging from 20x to 200x, it is suited for low-power observation of three-dimensional specimens. Additionally, a four-foot USB 2.0 cable offers easy maneuverability, making it convenient to view large surfaces.

A wheel on the barrel adjusts intensity. The microscope is powered through a USB connection to a computer, which also serves as the viewing screen. It features a clear plastic nose-piece and a single adjustable internal objective. The focus mechanism includes both coarse and fine focus options.

The CMOS sensor replaces the traditional eyepiece. The Celestron handheld microscope supports various still image capture resolutions and video resolutions up to 2592×1944. The downloadable software is compatible with both Windows and Mac systems.

The Celestron microscope is ideal for examining stamps, insects, plants, skin, gems, circuit boards, and even traditional slides at higher magnifications. Additionally, the software offers features for accurate measurements and annotation, enhancing the documentation of specimens.
