the "blister" thread pics were taken with a
lowest price today seems to be 70.00.
..Amazon also carries it..but it's about 20.00 more.
..several nice features about this particular
camera..such as the detachable imager..
[just clip it to the eyepiece of a bench microscope]
and you can use the microscope even if you are not
near a computer.
there is also a Celestron 44302..about 50 dollars..
that is a little less flexible...
the imager does not detach..and the lighting cannot
be turned off...and a 1.3 Mpixel imager vs the 2.0 Mpixel
imager for the 44306.
on the other hand..the 302 is better for macro tasks
as it's focal point is not as close as the 306...
easier to photograph things that are NOT Quite microscopic
in size...such as labels and small objects.
