The Discovery Pico Polar digital microscope is a biological microscope with a 1.3MP digital camera. It can be used not only for visual observations of the microbial world but also for capturing research in photo and video formats. This microscope will come in handy in your studies it will be a good choice for your hobby. It is user-friendly; even a beginner can easily use it. The microscope comes with a knowledge book about the microbial world.

Achromatic Optics and Fine Focusing

The monocular head can be rotated 360° horizontally. It can also be tilted 30°. This is useful for long-term and group observations as it makes working with the microscope more convenient. The optics including achromatic objectives and a wide-field eyepiece are made of glass. The 40x objective is equipped with a protective spring-loaded frame that protects the front lens from damage. The microscope magnification range is from 40x to 400x. Coarse focusing can be adjusted with the side coarse focus knobs.

Adjusting LED illumination system

The microscope features a LED Illumination system with brightness adjustment. It is powered by batteries (not included) or AC power supply (included). The stage features sample holding clips. The diaphragm disk is placed under the stage.

1.3MP digital camera for photo and video recording is included

The 1.3MP digital camera enables you to display the image under the objective on an external screen take pictures and record video. Everything that is placed on the stage comes into its field of view. The camera is installed directly into the eyepiece tube (you must first remove the standard eyepiece) and it is connected via a USB cable to the computer. You also need to install the software that is included in the kit. The frame resolution is 1280x1024 pixels. Video recording is possible at 30 frames per second which allows you to shoot very smooth videos. You can carry out simple editing of photos (adjust brightness change the size of the picture etc.).

'Invisible World' Knowledge Book is included

The 'Invisible World' knowledge book is a nice addition to the microscope as this educational guide is colorfully illustrated and well written.
