mmm home grown prawns, I assume thats wat the incubator does.

Don't know much about microscopes but looks interesting.

I saw these in Lidl for less than £50.

Extensive set incl. cutlery...


For eating the prawns - really!
I worked for quite some time with high-end microscopes buy I don't recall this much seafood involvement.

This microscope seems well featured but doesn't have phase-contrast (for viewing unstained materials), nor a 60x lens (anything higher would only be useful for oil-immersion).
The digital zoom will surely be disappointing given that it is only a 2MP camera.

For a much cheaper a simpler introduction to microscopy you may wish to (also) try ]this $12.69 80x handheld one.
