Microscope.
    #1229893 - 01/18/03 09:21 PM (13 years, 10 months ago)

Greetings.

I'm looking to buy a microscope with magnification between 400 and 1000x per Anno's advice. Curious if anyone has some knowledge on what is a good scope to purchase? anything i can look at?

I'd really like to be able to digitally capture pictures on to my hard drive... I consider this one of the most, if not the most important feature. any help appriciated!

thanks~ :grin:

Here is a post from a while back that might interest you.

http://www.shroomery.org/forums/showflat.php?Cat=&Board=Pictures&Number=638646&page=&view=&sb=5&o=&fpart=1&vc=1

It seems the user who posted it requested all of his posts be deleted. He took some pretty nice pics with an Intel model that hooked up to his computer. Roadkill says he saw the same model at ToysRus.

The pics weren't the best, but were pretty nice considering the item was available at ToysRus. I believe the magnification went up to 60x.

Edmund Scientifics has some digital microscopes that you can look at. If you want to buy them you are going to pay out your ass. I thought that this one looked pretty cool. You can take video and pictures with it. That would be pretty neat to see a video of mycelium growing.

  Go to ebay and check out the microscopes.  There are really a number of very good ones to be had for reasonable prices.  That's where I am going to get mine.  :smile:

Considering the magnifications you want to acheive your best bet would be to by one with those specs that is able to accept a 35mm camera attachment. Or could try to findone that has a video out plug which could be directed to a monitor or the video input on your PC(if your video card has one). But those tend to be a bit on the pricey side. I recently saw some on ebay with video out on ebay for around 425.00(used).

One can make very good shots simply through the ocular.

The items from Ebay look really interesting. Top bid on the second one is only $159. Looks sweet.   

>> Of course, I don't know squat about microscopes, so I'd want to research it thoroughly first.  :smirk:

They have lots of good scopes at various prices. Also have video cameras that can attach to the ocular.
