The microscope is not name brand, but it’s nice! Smooth and easy to use, with excellent controls! Supposed to be made by the same manufacturers that make the parts for Lieca and such. We also got some slides, covers, and stuff to do bacterial gram staining.
Here is the butterfly we are cutting up.
Anyway, I was excited and wanted to share. I am really excited about being able to take pictures of the views in the microscope since I intend to document a study on fecal samples and parasite loads in our goats over the next year. Doing some tracking and want to be able to show what I am finding. Hope you enjoyed the pictures! Oh, and I put the camera, a Cannon point and shoot, on manual at auto white balance and 800 ISO, with the macro setting for a close-up picture. I cupped my hand around the microscopes eye-piece and the lens to the camera, and could zoom in and out to get the picture I wanted. You have to move the camera around a bit to get the full picture do to the lenses in the tube of the eye piece and the camera. Took some maneuvering, but in about 2 minutes I had it down.
