    Wow- you are absolutely right! This is a must! Both for collectors of militaria, but also for coins, stamps and other pieces we come across in this addiction. Thanks for the tip- i am going to order one or two. (just in case one breaks on a bad time)
    Collect ROA, Cossack, Schuma and other WW2 Volunteer militaria.

    What is the magnification? Looks to be a handy bit of kit. How do you take/save the images?

    Jerry, the magnification is 20x to 400x, I'm reading this from the instructions here, all I know is it is very good! It's dead easy to take pics, it comes with a cd rom which has all the installation set up on it and once you've done that it is simply a matter of clicking on the icon and your away. To take a pic you just have to click on the camera icon which opens with the program. You can also video with this thing! You do need to focus manually on anything you are looking at, it has a dial on the side of the microscope that you manually rotate unti the item you are looking at comes into focus, it takes a bit of getting used to but it is great for close ups!

    Ian, that is almost identical to the one I bought! Grab one boys, the more I mess around with the one I got the happier I am that I got it.

    Dave, I only picked up on it to see if I could find one like it over here in the UK, so I'm afraid that 90% of the credit should go to you because all I did was a general Google search followed by a search on the Maplins website!
    If in doubt in the UK, try Maplins for anything electrical or similar
