Not a great microscope

Viewing piece is not clear and it does not focus to the power like you would expect. More of a device of frustration than one of discovery. Disappointed for the price.
A Little disapointed

We were so excited about this microscope, but ended up disappointed. The back arm and eye part are plastic. It looks sturdy, but it's not. When we're ready for another one, this will NOT be the one I buy.
