I just checked in the 1998 Forestry Suppliers, Inc Catalog 49 on page 304
and found the scope that appears to be identical to the one we felt was
excellent for pollen classification in the field.  It is a SPI 50x Portable
Microscope, catalog number 61028 and lists for $87.90.

I also looked in the 1998 Edmund's optics and optical instruments catalog and
found a scope that Edmund sells this under their own name.  It is 
catalog number D30,013, has a green body, costs $45, and is a 50x 
scope.  We have purchased this one and found it to be far inferior to 
the one I described above.
