I'm thinking about buying a microscope

  1. Sep 20, 2005 #1

    So like my topic says, I am thinking about buying a microscope via eBay for home use. It's generally to run my biology experiments.

    I am looking at a microscope with around 1600x magnification so it's possible for me to be able to go further in my experiments.

    I have been looking around eBay and their auctions and found a main seller, precision*world. Here's a link to one of his auctions.


    Other than whether a microscope is monocular, binocular, trinocular, etc... and the magnification, I don't know how to distinguish one microscope from the other.

    I'd appreciate it a lot if someone could offer me some advice.
