A mini microscope

This ‘look at’ microscope is remarkably small and amazingly good.

Laboratory microscopes are often for looking through very thin sections with a lamp shining up from underneath. This little item has a top light. It is not suitable for looking at those wafer thin laboratory slides. It is more like a powerful magnifying glass.

In use you can adjust the angle of the lamp so it produces a bright spot just where you are looking.

It really is bright – as LED lamps tend to be these days.


The microscope has a little pouch and a box which would offer a bit of protection when in a pocket. There are, of course, instructions in the box as well.


I know nothing about cost or suppliers. This was a gift from Brother-in-law. I’m certainly not promoting or advertising any particular brand here.
