I have an old Olympus stereo-zoom microscope at home. It
works quite well. I have one of those Chinese microscopes
at work, but it is a different one than the amazon link.
They indicate a 9" working distance, which is really great.
Mine have about a 4" working distance, which is fine as long
as the light, etc. don't interfere. Not sure that gooseneck
thing is really adequate. I made my own lights with 8 white
LEDs, resistors, a wall wart power supply, and a ring of PC
board material. One possible problem with the 9" working
distance is the eyepieces might be too high for comfort.
You might end up having to use a lowered table for it.
