Question

What resolution is the uScopeMXII?

Answer

The uScopeMXII is wavelength-limited. Image resolution is governed by the wavelength of visible light and depends on the numerical aperture (NA) of the objective and the camera mode: SD (standard definition–960x540) or HD (high definition–1920x1080).

uScopeMXII-40 40x 0.65 ≈0.25 ≈0.125 100,000 200,000
uScopeMXII-60 60x 0.85 ≈0.167 ≈0.083 150,000 300,000

As a rule of thumb, NA × 1,000 is the total magnification possible with any given objective.
