Levenhuk 2S NG Microscope is a great value, with its basic functions and high-quality Levenhuk optics. This model is a great choice for those who are just beginning to take interest in biological experiments. With its 200x magnification, it is a wonderful educational microscope for students and amateurs on their road to scientific excellence.
The Levenhuk 2S NG allows for bright field observations of transparent specimens. Its 40-mm (1.6-in) plano-concave mirror provides enough light for your observations, which means you can use this microscope without having to plug it in to a power source. This is the easiest and safest illumination method, which means that children can safely use this educational microscope. The disc diaphragm allows you to control the amount of light required for studying the specimen.
This monocular microscope has a single 16x achromatic objective lens, which provides a clear view without any chromatic or spherical aberrations. The head in this model is located directly above the stage, but for comfortable observations you can incline both the head and the stage to the desired angle by the arm of the microscope.
The 100x90-mm (3.9x3.5-in) stage is perfect for observations of one or two specimens. To prepare the specimen, first place a sample on the blank slide, then slowly drop a cover slip over the sample. The resulting slide is then placed on the stage and secured in place with stage clips. Use the coarse focusing knob to focus your view by moving the body tube of the microscope up and down (at 20-mm (0.8-in) intervals).
The metal construction makes this microscope both sturdy and stable.

- Microscope with 16x objective lens
