Handheld Computer Attached Microscopes

These microscopes consist of a camera (attached through USB to the computer), zoomable optics to allow for a range of magnifications, top-illumination (using LEDs), and some kind of stand. Their quality and ease of use depend on the included camera (pixel number and sensitivity), optics, and the supplied software (many of the cameras can also be operated from other software packages). We tested the Celestron 44302.
