I have seen some really nice logs from several different people either breeding fish or breeding shrimp or just pointing out a nasty little something or other......

Would like to see some pictures of the scopes you are using.
What kind of money would be involved especially for camera work...
Do you recommend Achromatic or Apromatic not sure if this is right but referring to the quality of the lens.
Basically would like input from all aspects to be able to make a decent decision on a purchase.

Thanks,

John

Budget around $200 per scope and pick up both a compound and a dissection would be the best bet. You can pick up a decent stereo dissection in that range.

Heres my bench (dont mind the mess) The stereo is a Konus Opal 40x dissection that I picked up for about $120 new and next to it is a cheap hobby lobby 400x compound that came with a little usb camera. I use the compound for counting cells but really most the time it's the stereo dissection that pays the way!

Since most of my clients are engineering companies I often run across used stereo setups (they use them for soldering small parts and such) ranging from super low to super high end... IMHO the Konus does it's job at a great price! A better compound is in the future for me but not till I finish acquiring the rest of my lab wish list as this one will do find for now. So far Ebay has been wonders, I've been able to pick up my microfuge, tubes, a micropipette (much valued peice of equipment) and a few water baths on a very tight budget!

Try some hospital labs and see if they have any old ones. The old ones are better than some of the pics there. You should be able to get one quite cheap (or even free).

I used a Nikon Eclipse E400 to take these pics (x40 and x400). They are about £6000 ($11000) though - I borrowed one at work...

As a matter of fact I have.
Anderson (Aomont) reminded me just the other day that I was going to post them.
Time does get away.
I'll get the pics up as soon as I can find the file that I hid them in. :shock:
My wife read this and is instructed to remind me! :lol:

This is the microscope that I found in a local hobby shop for $90.00. It works well for what I need it to do. It takes video and pictures, or you can use it as a traditional scope too.
