Celestron Introduces New InfiniView and Handheld Digital Pro Microscopes

Two new models bring smart design and high utility to Celestron’s innovative digital microscope line.

Torrance, CA (June 12, 2013) – Display, capture, and share your microscopic discoveries with the two latest additions to Celestron’s digital microscope line: InfiniView Desktop LCD and Handheld Pro digital microscopes. Designed with classroom and lab environments in mind, both models can accommodate a wide range of applications for the hobbyist, student and professional alike. 

InfiniView is a lightweight, versatile low-power LCD digital microscope that effortlessly goes from field to lab thanks to its rechargeable lithium ion battery, which provides up to two hours of continuous use. Place your specimens on InfiniView’s adjustable stage and view them in vivid color on the 3.5”LCD screen at magnifications from 4x to 160x. Record what you see as a 5MP photo, 30fps video, or a time-lapse series of images directly onto your Micro SD card (supplied by user). Connect to your Mac or PC via USB and the included Celestron Portable Capture Pro software, to save work directly to a computer or connect to an external monitor with the AV out cable, for displaying in a large group setting like a classroom or conference.

The Handheld Digital Pro takes the bestselling Deluxe Handheld to new heights—literally. Connect Handheld Digital Pro to your PC or Mac via USB, then use the included height-adjustable stand to zoom in on small objects like stamps, coins, insects, at a 20x to 200x magnification range. Or, pop the microscope out of the stand and use it freely to view large object surfaces or look into tight spaces. Finally, document your discoveries in vibrant detail with Handheld Digital Pro’s 5MP sensor camera, adjustable LED illuminator, and included Capture Pro software, which let you save high-resolution still images or 30fps video. 

The InfiniView and Handheld Digital Pro microscopes are now shipping and are available through Celestron’s vast network of dealers. Please visit Celestron.com for dealer locations or more information.
