Microscope for a serious high school student?

Can someone help me look on this site:

http://www.fishersci.com/ecomm/servlet/Search?keyWord=Compound+Microscopes&URL=WCSLogon&restrictedCategoryId=&N=0&Ntk=all&rpp=15&suppCatNoOnOff=false&imagesOnOff=true&highlightOnOff=true&teaserOnOff=true&store=ScienceEducation&storeId=10652&type=&showAdvanceOptions=

For a good microscope for a high school student, who is serious about micro biology. Nothing that's beginner yet nothing that is too advance.

Also, if the price can be less than, or very close to, $150.

Thank you

I recommend you check out eBay or Craig's list. There is always a good assortment of used microscopes available. A basic binocular inspection microscope (which you will probably find lots of on eBay) does not go to high enough magnification (maybe up to 25X or 50X). You will not be able to see micro-organisms like paramecium or hydra (life in a puddle after a rain) etc until you get to 100X. You want to be able to get light from underneath the sample (transmission) but it is really nice if you get a microscope that does both transmission and reflection (for samples that you can not see light thru like moss or insects or polished rocks or metal etc).

If your high school student is really serious, you might want a port on the scope that allows you to attach a digital camera.

On prices... check out a real scientific microscope company on-line: Nikon and Olympus and Leica are excellent companies (fisher scientific does not make microscopes (?), they resell microscopes made by other companies, after marking up the price). For new microscopes, you can't get much for $150, be ready for a little "sticker shock".

For used microscopes, $150 might get you something really basic. If you look at this as an investment, good microscopes keep their value fairly well (so long as they are well maintained). And... a used microscope is more likely to come with some options and add-ons that might be really nice: polarizing filters, color filters, higher power objectives, port for a camera (and maybe a camera), spare light bulbs (good microscope lamps produce high intensity light and, therefore, the bulbs are expensive), etc.

On used ones... A couple things are important, the condition of the objectives and the condition of the internal light path (basically mirrors). You can also find companies (often little companies) which provide maintenance on microscopes, they do once a year cleaning and that kind of thing. Such a company might be a VERY good place to ask if they have or know of any good used microscopes.

It is a little easier to look thru a microscope that has two eye pieces but a whole lot of very good scientific work was done on microscopes that only let you look with one eye (instruments that are more than about 50 years old). Scientists learned to "see" the image with one eye while the other eye was still open (cause keeping one eye closed gets old in a hurry) and, this was before digital cameras and good film cameras were expensive and required a dark room so lots of scientists drew pictures of what they saw.
