Microscopes are created to enhance resolutions of any image or object, and come in various types, including compound, digital and stereo. As for the last one mentioned, a stereo microscope can show object depths in a 3D image. If this is what you are looking for, then try checking out the AmScope SE305R-PZ Forward Binocular Stereo Microscope.

 

Features

 

The AmScope SE305R-PZ Forward Binocular Stereo Microscope is a forward binocular stereo microscope that offers 10X, 20X, 30X and 60X magnification settings. Coming with a sturdy all-metal pillar stand, it sports a versatile illumination system that offers both transmitted (bottom) and incident (top) lighting, which means that you will be able to use it to observe three-dimensional objects and the slides themselves. This microscopy instrument also offers good depth and high resolution within a broad field of view, providing you with clear stereo images. With its forward widefield and 45-degree inclined binocular head, it makes sure you will have an easy observation, not to mention that it uses rubber eye-guards to provide further comfort.

 

Also, this microscope from AmScope is designed with high-quality widefield optical glass lenses, which is a system that ensures sharp clear quality of microscopic images. Its metal construction also makes it possible for such an instrument last more than 10 years, which are just enough time to cover all microscopy tasks from elementary to high school. Plus, its metal body is said to be sturdier at high magnification levels, with minor turbulence not having to distort the images.

 

Pros

 

The option to change the magnification level will be as quick as turning the large circular, bottom lens carrier in order to select whatever level you need. When doing so, you will notice that it will be very smooth, with the adjustments locking into new positions very firmly with the perfect resistance in every turn. While this is not a microscope for examining specimens, such as plant cells, hairs, single celled organisms etc, its low-power 10x eyepieces produces  images that are sharp over much of the field of view, with comfortable eye relief. This instrument is definitely great for magnifying insects, jewelry, electronics, coins and other similar objects.

 

Cons

 

You should take note that the high power 20X eyepiece is not as comfortable as you would expect it to be, with the eye relief that is quite tight. Also, the screws that you have to loosen out to remove the eyepieces are extremely tight, requiring you to use a tiny screwdriver to remove them, which by the way could not get loose easily.

 

Final Thoughts

 

All in all the AmScope SE305R-PZ Forward Binocular Stereo Microscope is perfect for a lot of applications, such as in biology, forestry, geology and archaeology. It is appropriate for educational purposes in schools, hospitals and even homes, where you can let your children explore of the world of every material’s surface details and fine structures. This instrument is definitely worth your investment!
