Niggles and I have been looking at microscopy, learning more about it. Um, there's a lot more to it than we thought... What's become obvious early on in the piece is that my cheapo $50 ebay scope isn't up to the job of looking at stomates and spores. It's not just the magnification, it's the crap optics. Need a compound scope with illumination, pref LED. Pref with coarse and fine focusing. Magnification to 1000x or more if there's an immersion lens involved ( never used one, no idea how that works ). I wanna see stomates, chromosomes, spores. Good optics are essential. We'll be attaching a camera to it too. Zeiss. Leica or Olympus lens or similar quality. If you have a good compound scope at home just sitting round and you'd love to see it get used regularly, gimme a hoi and we'll find a suitable trade for you.

Have a trinocular compund microscope for sale that I bought from the US. Only been used a couple of times, and now have no use for it. It's a really good machine, very useful for mycology purposes, or any other work requiring high magnification. Here is info on the model: http://www.microscop...600x-p-124.html I paid $350 for it originally, asking $200 for it now. Pm if interested. Cheers. Edit: can supply a 5MP or 9MP (I forget which one, I'll have to check) USB microscope camera with it too if needed. The price of which would have to be negotiated.
