Have a look here:

Binocular high power microscopes start at around £250 and I guess that you get what you may for. I bought a Meiji phase contrast microscope from them around 3 years ago and it is fine - costs more than the budget range though. If you saw my pics of ivy pollen in another place they were taken on that.
