How do I shop for high powered microscopes on a budget without getting a bad quality one?
I don't want to spend tons, (I'm thinking I can do about $250 max) and want a high-powered microscope. I would really like it to be bifocal (not stereo). I'd prefer at least a max of 1000x, if not 1600x. I want the microscope so that I can explore the world around me. Oh, and I'm considering certain biological fields for my career. Thanks guys!
