Celestron Microscopes

Celestron have developed a wide range of microscopes. The type of microscopes available are; Stereo, Digital, and Optical. The stereo or stereoscopic microscope is designed for low magnification observation of a sample, typically using light reflected from the surface of an object. A digital microscope is designed to use optics and a charge-coupled device (CCD) camera to output a digital image to a monitor. The optical microscope is a type of microscope which uses visible light and a system of lenses to magnify images of small samples.

The stereo Microscopes use two separate optical paths with two objectives and eyepieces to provide slightly different viewing angles to the left and right eyes. This arrangement produces a three-dimensional visualisation of the sample being examined.

A digital microscope usually has it’s own in-built LED light source, and differs from a stereo microscope in that there is no provision to observe the sample directly through an eyepiece. Since the optical image is projected directly on the CCD camera, the entire system is designed for the monitor image. The optics for the human eye are omitted.

The optical microscope is sometimes referred to as a “light microscope“. It is a type of microscope which uses visible light and a system of lenses to magnify images of small samples. Optical microscopes are the oldest design of microscope. Basic optical microscopes can be very simple, although there are many complex designs which aim to improve resolution and sample contrast.
