student microscope for sale

Postby binman » Sun Sep 14, 2008 10:50 am

anyone interested in a student microscope? this is a high quality japan made instrument (with JC11 passed gold sticker), the type used in schools. i've got one in very good condition.
its great for passing time on those cloudy nights or as a side hobby!
gives really clear images and has a wide fov unlike the cheap ones sold in toy stores for around £20-£30. focus is smooth, objective lenses click firmly in place and every thing works as you'd expect from a quality instrument.
its made by griffin, has a 10x eyepiece which has good eye relief that gives 40x 100x and 200x (200x enough to see the red blood cells as little doughnuts!) has clean anti reflective coated optics, included are 50 new blank slides and 100 new cover slips. will upload some pics... any offers? they retail around £90-£100 new. theirs no box with this item. stands about 12 inchs tall.
selling to help raise funds for a new scope.

regards mark

it is a good price, should be twice that really! even second hand. i guess because it doesnt have a super mega 1000x zoom mag, come with a ton of useless gadgets and a CD rom or doesnt have a big bright shiney box with made in china written on it somewhere no ones interested......?

£5 P+P a load of slides costing another £8 leaves the microscope at £17 !!!![:(]
i mean COME ON folks how cheap can i go without being robbed!

starting to change my mind with this as it is great fun on a boring sunday afternoon or cloudy night.
a spiders two main eyes look just like toy teddy bear eyes dont you know!

Oh, I'm so tempted.

Does it come with any prepared slides or just blank?

hi thing
i have one prepared slide only with it (leaf hair of silverberry) but i've seen kits on ebay and car boot sales including 15 and sometimes 30 pre prepared slides for just a few pounds.
the slides provided have cover slips to make your own, you just need the fixing solution (again ebay)

i seriously wont go any lower on the price and after xmas if it hasnt sold im keeping it
