Light microscopes are very versatile tools that can be used for magnifications from 1x to 1,000x or a bit more. It can be used to every thing from viewing live organisms to slides that require a lengthy preparation. Anyone can have one and use to some degree. You can buy a new or used one from $50 dollars to any amount you can name.

Light microscopes are cheap and reality simple devices whereas electron microscopes are much more complex, and provide a much higher resolution image and are capable of much higher magnification.
