        Comments about RadioShack Illuminated Microscope:

        A kids toy, but usable with practice. Hard to hold steady and stay focused in the garden. LED light would have made a big difference in battery drain. Cheap/poor optics make good lighting necessary.

                  Great little scope for places where a regular microscope would not be possible.

                  If you need a replacement bulb its a standard 222 bulb

                  Radio Shack no 272-1124 or most places that have replacement flashlight bulbs

                      I have been using this to view Morgellons fibers in peoples skin and it has worked well for that. However, recently the bulb went out and I cannot find a 2.5v.3A small top bulb anywhere! I even went back to Radio Shack to no avail. I was hoping RS would stock bulbs for their products, but I guess they can't be bothered.

                      A great little microscope. Perfect for checking on trichomes, also allows you to identify males/females very early on. Only downside is that it's a bit difficult to hold it steady.

                      Great to use on my plants RE; tricomes
                      I had to take about 2 hours to get to
                      know how it would work best for me. Its small
                      hard to hold still. so I got to work best by
                      putting a sample of plant in a pop bottle lid
                      and holding both.had no shaking got great results.
                      I will tell all my frends to buy this low cost
                      magilight..P.S.I did pay and extra $1.50 for 1yr
                      replace if it falls apart I plan to be useing
                      it every day....Thank you RADIOSHACK

                          Can't get a clear focused image. I have used the 30X for 11 years and love it. The 60x-100x shows a cloudy blurred image. Had 2 colleagues of mine try it and they had the same issue. Maybe just a lemon?...

                          Comments about RadioShack Illuminated Microscope:

                          This mini mouse microscope is worth every cent. I would not recommend it for any kind of professional use, but it is outstanding for hobbies and simple curiosity. The small view and somewhat awkward focus and power adjustments combined with lack of stability(the nature of a handheld microscope) makes this bad boy a lesson in perseverance, but the reward is an amazingly crisp view. I rigged mine to a flexible desk light to eliminate my shaking hands with excellent results.

                                    For a [$] microscope this works very well, having a clear enough image to be truly useful. It would be even better with a LED light though.
