The perfect starter scope. I added a HD camera tripod mount to the bottom by unbolting the swivel base and running the bolt thru both the base and the mount tab for the tripod. works either way now. And with the digital eyepiece I received for the microscope I purchased, with an adapter to take the eyepiece from 24mm to 32mm. Awsome.
