You aren't answering the question.

I'm not an employee. I'm just a newb on here. But this is the lowest price I can find on it and you aren't exactly helping.
Give me a worthwhile question...and I'll answer it. Better yet, offer it again at $112 or below....and we'll talk.

Where'd you find it remotely that price? Honest question. All the searches I saw it was well over $200 unless you go to ebay.

So which story is it ? It is regularly "$1,199" or supposedly the going rate is "over $200" ?

Honest answer: If you know to search eBay.....you know good and well on how to find past price histories.

Instead of making this a big mystery, I looked up completed sales on eBay and saw the same scope, that had been used one time sell for $110 shipped.... new ones can be had for $182.

3rd party seller inflating the retail price. I'm not saying it's a bad deal, but I hate when they do that.

that $112 price is likely a just launched seller, so those don't count.

MSRP for scopes has been overly inflated for years now. You are better off buying the one w/ the kit: https://www.amazon.com/dp/B0094JTZOU

There's also one with a darkfield condenser but less zoom so you don't have to bother w/ upgrades for around the same price point. (can't find link now)

Next BF for $150! Wink

Do you think the one you just suggested for -+\- $150 would be better for image reproduction? I know it has less zoom , Just ordered a 5_️difinitive intro to minroscopes. Ive tried with good lense, (love my Sony 50 macro-not strong enough for this subject). Is maddening up close Always searching. Many lenses and close up filters later, and lots of other materials that magnify, I'm broke and back to original sane thought, " I need a microscope." iits some kind of very tiny organic matter/ particle? Sharp as hell images possible you think? thanks !!

Look into Nikon or Lexar for those. But they aren't cheap.
These are entry level. Maybe lenses can be upgraded/modded, don't know.
