Note: If you order additional 20x stereo eyepieces to double the magnification, they will only increase the magnification when you are actually looking into the microscope. The additional eyepieces will not increase the magnification on the built-in camera, so you would still only get 10-40X magnification when looking at the image on your computer screen.
