Re: Help to buy a microscope

Yes, that one from Bulgaria+shipping was expensive - EUR is more expensive here than USA dollar. I think, I most likely buy this Fisher Micromaster, cause it's almost new (at least, the seller claims so) and it's price+shipping to Georgia will be OK. Btw, can you tell me, please, is there a tungsten...

Re: Help to buy a microscope

OK, it's everything clear with cheap school/educational microscopes, but chinese microscopes are used also in hospital laboratories, so, i can't understand, how it's even possible to use such unreliable things when sometimes lives of people depend on precise and accurate analyses?

Re: Help to buy a microscope

Hi, Apochronaut, thank you for your concern! I don't know how long the interest of my son will last, but I myself just almost fell in love with microscopes after reading so much about them :lol: so, I'll try to keep his interest as long as possible. Purchasing from USA to Georgia is just well establ...

Re: Help to buy a microscope

Hi, Lorez, thank you! Sometimes I think that one shouldn't read anything about microscopy BEFORE buying a microscope, buy some "bestseller" from Amazon and be happy with it, cause it turned out that buying a microscope is just like buying a house or a car when you choose, choose and choose endlessly...

Re: Help to buy a microscope

Thank you, Charles, I too hope he will enjoy it and will learn a lot things about biology.

One more question: should I ask the seller something about the microscope and what exactly? Maybe about optics or something else, idk... :roll:

Re: Help to buy a microscope

Hi Charles, thank you, there are photos below in the description, it is the condenser on the third one, isn't it? https://img.auctiva.com/imgdata/5/5/2/7/2/5/webimg/970669367_tp.jpg I like that one too cause it has 2 objectives, so there is the possibility to attach a camera and connect it to the co...

Re: Help to buy a microscope

Hello, Hobbyst46, thank you for replying.
Yes, he wants a "real" microscope to see cells and other things that are inside. He's very smart and maybe will be able to cope with a microscope with a little help.
