Very nice; great value
Solid construction and all the basics. Easy set up for the most part (I had trouble only with setting up the safety stop). The optics are fine for home use, and it's easy to use. The small set of prepared slides was a very nice surprise.

Only two things would make it a little more user-friendly: coarse and fine focus adjustments on the same dial (similar to the stage adjustment), and a switch on the light source.

Overall I would definitely recommend this for the hobbyist; it's a great value for the price.

This is an Good Quality Instrument
I was pleasantly surprised when the Celestron 44104 arrived. I have not used a microscope since high school biology. I had always wanted to have a microscope, but could never justify the cost. This year, while purchasing presents for others, I decided to buy this for me.

I am glad I did. This instrument is a good quality 'heavy' type of device and comes with the electric illumination device. Funny, I did well with just the included mirror light up the slides.

To save money, check out the Celestron 44102. As near as I can tell, that is this model minus = 12.5x eye piece, blue filter, and the AC light thing.

Excellent microscope, but possibly dangerous?
Just got this microscope yesterday. It's amazing. Originally I had planned to spend more money on a scope with 1000x magnification power, but when I learned that this one could be upgraded, I decided to save some money and avoid the difficulty of dealing with oil immersion. I am very impressed with what you can see at 400x and 500x, and with such clarity. Also, the mechanical stage is great. I didn't think of the mechanical stage is a deciding factor when choosing a scope, but now that I've used it I can't imagine not having it.

I want to give this product 5 stars, except that, as others have said, this seems like it could be a fire hazard. I actually feel very fortunate that I had read the other reviews that mentioned this danger, because otherwise I probably would not have taken any precautionary steps. Because I read those reviews, I chose to put my microscope on top of a cork coaster when using the lamp. Sure enough, when I moved the microscope aside, you could...
