I'm making unnecessary comments at this point, but when I looked to improve upon my microscope situation (and really didn't want to spend what I spent, which is going to make the wife major p.o.'d), it appeared to me that almost everything that works with reflective light was about the same below the $250 level.

They all seem to operate around either the pen size chip-inspection type camera (which takes really clear pictures, but is low magnification and not that cheap), or the turret style thing that I have that comes with various apparatuses to hold the scope (mine came with the worst - a stand that couldn't actually stay upright if you tipped the microscope down - which you have to do with everything).

There were some others like the QX3, and follow-ons but reviews are inconsistent and it sounds like they don't have updated software to use with current operating systems.

The only low-cost device that tempted me was an inverted surface reflective microscope that was $90 on amazon and had a true 800x optical (more than mine). But it's 800x, period and very limited in scope.

There is a huge market of student-ish scopes for biology (really capable devices that are maybe a bit lightweight, but inexpensive), but not much for surface reflective - the version I bought is probably what would be referred to as homeowner grade, because the western-world versions have another zero on the price.
