Trekker’s unique optical design provides excellent depth of view and a
focus range which extends nearly 3/4 of an inch above the stage –
extremely useful when viewing irregularly shaped objects such as
geological specimens or insects. You can even record your results
permanently with the TrekLink Photo Adapter (available separately) which
allows the Trekker to be connected to 35mm and digital SLR cameras.
The removable eyepiece also doubles as a 10X magnifier or hand lens.
|At last – an affordable, hand-held microscope with precision
optics! Simply place a specimen on a ring at the top of the
microscope using the magnetic holder and focus using the
thumbwheel. The 35x magnification – chosen on the recommendation
of teachers – is powerful enough to provide great detail. The
small size (4” diameter x 1” depth) comes from the use of
folded optics and the high resolution, coated glass optics provide
clear, sharp images. The high gathering power of the large
objective lens allows transparent and semi-transparent objects to
be viewed using room lighting. Solid specimens can be observed
using the scope’s white LED annular lighting system, powered by
a 9-volt battery for up to 100 hours of continuous operation.
