The Higher the Magnification - The More Detail You'll See

Magnification 40x
Magnification 1000x
Magnification 2500x

Magnification is the ability of your microscope to make small objects seem larger. As the magnification increases the area being viewed will be decrease is size but the detail of the area being viewed will improve.

Amscope microscopes come with multiple magnifications to aid you in finding the proper magnification for viewing each specimen.

Camera Connection Types

When comparing 2.0 and 3.0 there are few major differences. First the transfer rates. USB 2.0 offers transfer rates of 480 Mbps and USB 3.0 offers transfer rates of 4.8 Gbps - that's 10 times faster.

Camera Resolution

The most important factor in ensuring successful microscopic imaging is choosing the appropriate optics and camera for your application that gives you more data and higher image quality. When selecting a microscope camera, it is best to base your decision on the most important requirements for your microscopic observation.

Key Features

  • The Celestial Globe is a demonstration device that shows the apparent positions of the stars visible from Earth
  • The globe consists of two concentric spheres mounted on a common axle and supported on a frame with a base
  • The frame is fixed to a round base so that the axle is held at an angle of 23.5° to the vertical, representing the inclination of the Earth’s spin axis to the axis of its orbit around the sun

The Celestial Globe is a demonstration device that shows the apparent positions of the stars visible from Earth. The three dimensional representation allows the relative angular positions of the constellations to be visualized and permits students to estimate which stars will be visible from different places on Earth for any rotational position of the planet.

The globe consists of two concentric spheres mounted on a common axle and supported on a frame with a base.

The inner sphere (1) in the above illustration) is 4€ in diameter and represents the Earth. The continents are marked on it in their correct relative positions. The outer sphere (2) is transparent. It is 12.5€ in diameter and has the constellations and their stars marked on it. Yellow shading indicates the Milky Way, the plane of our galaxy. The axle (3) that carries both spheres allows them to be rotated independently.

An angle scale is marked on the frame (4) that supports the axle. The angles are marked every degree and extend from zero at the equator to 87° in both directions. The frame is fixed to a round base (5) so that the axle is held at an angle of 23.5° to the vertical, representing the inclination of the Earth€™s spin axis to the axis of its orbit around the sun.
