Rating: 4 by Frances, NC Need clearer instructions. Did not seem to work as well as the one I had when I was a kid. Loved the carry case and all the nice xtras for gathering stuff to look at. Found it hard to adjust - for example looking at one of the dog's hairs -- just seemed to look like dark line - hair was white. Some of the leaves showed up with the veins, etc. and were good.
