Manual Handheld Microscopes

These little handheld microscopes have build-in zoom and a light source for top-illumination. They cost around $10, and are available from multiple vendors. They are fun to have around, but you have to be able to look through an eyepiece and manipulate the focus and zoom knobs to operate these microscopes. We tested one model here (the Carson Micromax). Others can be found by searching for the term Illuminated Microscope.
