    Discovery Micro Gravity is an entry-level biological microscope that allows you to observe transparent samples. They can be prepared slides, microworld in the water drop, or self-made slides. The microscope is small and lightweight thereby making it portable. Therefore, you can use it not only at home but you can also take it with you on a trip or to the country.

    Optical system

    The magnification range is from 40x to 640x, so bacteria or blood cells cannot be seen. However, this microscope will allow you to see something of animal and plant tissues, observe cells as well as examine parts of insects and tiny organisms that live in water. The microscope is equipped with three objective lenses (4x, 10x, and 40x) and a 10x–16x sliding two-position eyepiece. The head inclined at 45° makes extended observation convenient, and the sharpness is adjusted manually using the coarse focusing knobs. The microscope is easy to use, even for an inexperienced user.

    Adjusting LED illumination system

    The samples are placed on a stage where they can be secured with two clips. There is an LED light under the stage. It is recommended to use it in case of insufficient ambient light. Since the backlight is powered by batteries (not included), the lighting can be used even away from an outlet. The illumination brightness is adjustable. The illumination flux can also be corrected using the diaphragm disks.

    Book of microworld knowledge

    The microscope comes with the "Invisible World" knowledge book. This colorful book will tell young scientists about the microworld. You can read about the history of microscopy, microorganisms, and a variety of structures that can be seen under a microscope. In the book, not only interesting facts are described, but also experiments that can be implemented at home.
