What Our Customers Say

Wow! Wow! Wow! And then some!  The Aqua slides & microscope are amazingly awesome! Using them feels like fishing when I was a kid. You never knew what you would catch.

I bought this as a gift for my ten year old son. He absolutely loved it and the whole family finds it fascinating. Simple set up. Great microscope.

Stacy C.

This thing is AWESOME!! It is just as advertised. I am so excited. We are homeschooling and it goes perfect with our life science on molecules and organisms. This is even better than I even expected. Definitely worth the purchase

What basic knowledge do I need to start using a microscope?

None! The setup video will guide you through your first time using a microscope, and you’ll gain more advanced skills in the weekly live masterclass.

How can I adjust the microscope for users with different eyesight or those wearing glasses?

Projecting the micro-view onto a TV or monitor is the best way to make microscopy accessible to people of most abilities. Otherwise, for viewing through eyepieces, you’ll want to have the users take off their glasses. On the Horizons Microscope, you can adjust the diopter in case each eye focuses slightly differently.

What's the best way to share my findings or observations with others?

In-person collaborative discovery is always the most fun, but you can also snap a photo or record video and share on social media!

If I need technical support, what is the best way to contact the company?
