See things closer than you’d ever imagine. This Pocket-Size Illuminated Microscope magnifies 30 times through precision optics, meaning an ant can appear the size of an antelope. The Pocket-Size Illuminated Microscope automatically illuminates the area in front of the lens. With illustrated instructions from nature expert Nick Baker, you’ll understand how to get a close-up view of pretty much anything. More details
