Product description

This compact yet powerful digital microscope is the perfect companion for up-close observation on the go. The onboard 3-inch, full color TFT LCD screen flips out when you need it, then folds back into the microscope body for portability. A rechargeable lithium ion battery provides hours of viewing time in the classroom or on a nature walk.  FlipView, with its 10x to 120x  magnification is a low-power microscope perfectly designed for viewing an array of 3D specimens, from beach sand to bugs, coins and currency, documents, circuit boards, and more.   


With its built-in 5 MP sensor, FlipView offers the best resolution you’ll find on a Celestron digital microscope. Combine that with the 5-element IR cut lens, and you’ll achieve sharp images and video of your specimens. A ring of 8 adjustable LEDs provides the perfect illumination for your shot.

Insert any Micro SD card (up to 32 GB) to save images and videos, or plug the microscope into your computer via the included USB cable and capture images using Celestron’s Portable Capture Pro software. Or stream the view from FlipView to a television or projector with the included video out cable.


With one of Celestron’s most versatile designs, FlipView can be used in three configurations depending on the specimen you’re viewing:

Use it in handheld mode for quick and easy observations.

Flip out the attached leg and FlipView sits on any flat surface. Perfect for viewing flat objects like stamps, currency, and more.

For longer observing sessions of 3D objects, mount FlipView to the included metal stand via the ¼-20 connector. The stand features two articulation points and can be adjusted to point it precisely at your subject.
