Celestron® FlipView™ Handheld LCD Microscope

(in stock)


Grades 6–12. This compact yet powerful digital microscope is the perfect companion for up-close observation on the go. The onboard 3", full-color TFT LCD screen flips out when you need it then folds back into the microscope body for portability. A rechargeable lithium ion battery provides hours of viewing time in the classroom or on a nature walk.

With its 10x to 120x magnification, FlipView™ is a low-power microscope perfectly designed for viewing an array of 3-D specimens, from beach sand to bugs, coins and currency, documents, circuit boards, and more. The versatile ergonomic design can be used 3 ways: handheld, on a flat surface with flip-out leg, or with the included metal stand and 1/4-20 connection. Insert any micro SD card (up to 32 GB, card not included) to save images and videos, or plug the microscope into your computer via the included USB cable and capture images using Celestron's Portable Capture Pro software. Or stream the view from FlipView™ to a television or projector with the included video out cable.

Other features include:

  • Shutter trigger on the housing (and through the software interface when used through the computer option)
  • Flicker control of 50/60 Hz
  • MJPEG video compression format
  • Measuring software, Celestron® Portable Capture Pro, with note-taking capabilities and included calibration tool
