I have a portable  20X monocular microscope (cat. # H-03096-00)
manufactured by Specwell that  works well in the field.  It also
converts to a telescope for distance viewing of remote surfaces, but
does not include a light source.  The Specwell is available in 35X
and 40X models, as well.  It can be purchased  for about $200.00
from Cole-Palmer:  800-323-4340.
