    Junk My son got the Refractor Telescope/ 300x/600x/1200x Microscope Set as a birthday gift. There are already several accurate reviews of the ridiculously junky telescope, so I thought I’d share a review of the ridiculously junky microscope. Where to start… the stage does not have metal clips to hold the slides; there are plastic edges that are supposed to tighten against the edges of the slide if you place it on the stage vertically instead of horizontally. Any slight nudge will bump/pop the slide right out. The slide covers are round white stickers- not sure how they could function as covers. The specimen slide isn’t labeled and it’s not easy to tell what it is so it’s anyone’s guess what you’re looking at, if you can find it. The instructions that come with the telescope are for some other model. Our tweezers were missing when we opened the package. And, most importantly, the magnification and visibility is absolutely terrible. If I could give it no stars, I would. And to the reviewer who said this was good for kids, WRONG. It isn’t good for anyone, and any price is too high for this- it belongs in the garbage.

    Bad microscope This is one of the worst microscopes ever. I could not even see a thing and the light stopped working the first day. It looked used.Cheap plastic stuff.The lens is plastic also.
