Celestron 1.3 Megapixel Mini Handheld Digital Microscope

The Celestron mini handheld digital microscope employs a CCD camera coupled with multicoated optics and six white light emitting diodes (LED's) to magnify and snapshot a broad variety of subjects on a computer screen.

Use it to inspect stamps, coins, circuit boards, rocks, and more. Simply place the unit on top of the subject, turn the light shield to focus, and enjoy the detail-rich view on your screen. Take snapshots, or video of your subjects. Even retouch the images with your favorite image editing program (like Photoshop, GIMP, etc.)
