I agree this microscope has a issue with focus. But tinkering with it I found the issue. The diaphram light adjustment knob need to be set to open or the tiny hole to focus the light on the lens also the condenser lens was causing the problem I removed the condenser. And whala I was able to focus very clearly still have a little trouble focusing at 40x and its hard to see the 40x lens has to be match with the tiny hole on the diaphram to focus the light into the lens you can see the object but its a little dim. If I allow all the light in I can't see at 40x so set it to small hole. Remove the condenser lens in the diaphram its causingthe focus problems. This will void warrenty and you will not be able to return it if you do this mod. Seems the manufacture needs to fix the condenser other then that it is a very good microscope but it needs mod to get it to work properly. I intend to see if standard optical lenses for microscopes will work on this to improve image quality. It appears to use standard threads 30mm. So a optic lens upgrade might be possible to improve clarity and image quality.

Comments about Toys R Us 1001325 Edu Science M1280X Ultra Student Microscope:

The microscope was missing 1 of the 2 pre-assembled slide clips. My daughter had been saving for this microscope for a while and against my advice, she did not want to exchange it.

                    Received as gift from family member. After the frustration of trying to focus on subjects and knowing we'd likely not use this much... we awkwardly asked to return as we knew they spent A LOT of money for this and we loved the gift idea. We added $50-60 more and got an AmScope variety which we're much, much, much happier with -- it feels like a real microscope with metal construction and glass optics. Unlike this product

                        I bought this because I wanted to get my kids a stereo microscope. I figured that at this price it was worth the risk (thankfully I can return it).

                        As soon as I opened it, I knew I should return it, but decided to at least look through it anyway. (I wanted to try it out before giving it to my kids to make sure it worked, I did not want them to be disappointed.)

                        First - False Advertising. The box says 'course and fine focus knob', this is essential for high magnification. I guess it is not really false advertising, because both adjustments are on the same knob (note, they did not state 'knobs'). Turn a lot for course, turn a little for fine.

                        Second - The top illuminator was not even aimed to the scope stage. This is easy to fix by simply unscrewing the bezel, and gently moving the white LED. The top illuminator is pretty dim - they could have put a brighter LED in there.

                        Third - At the highest magnification, I cannot get any light throughput. Makes it kind of useless if you cannot see anything.

                        Bottom line is that I will be returning this, and hopefully finding something else. I was hoping to get my kids something that was usable, but was disappointed (and one present short).

                        Wish there was a way of leaving Zero stars - 1 star makes it seem that it gets a 20% satisfaction rating, where it is really a big zero.

                          Both sets of the eye pieces were horribly spotted. At first I was concerned it was my eyes, but as I reached up and rotated each lens I could see the spots moving in a perfect circle so I knew they were, in fact, part of the product.

                          We were unable to get a clear view on any of the slides that were included and I returned it and ordered one online that had glass lenses for less money.
                          This may be a fun toy (lots of neat things included to play with) but if you are trying to homeschool it is not a quality piece. For this much money I would expect a higher quality lens set.

                                  Could not get anything to focus above the lowest resolution and all the lenses were full of dust and grime. I also could not find any instructions for anything what so ever in the box. The flimsy plastic frame would cause the specimens to shift by barely touching anywhere on the the microscope. Returned this to the store immediately after purchasing.

                                  my attached photo is made of the supplied shrimp antenna specimen with the lowest resolution and you can see everything is hazy and also full of dust specs. I was never able to focus with anything higher.
