Re: Hi, noob from Alabama here...

Hi NJH, I wish I had my hands on your part that has the broken screw in it. I would take care of it for you. My paying job is as an A and P mechanic. So currently I do heavy maintenance repair on army helicopters currently. I won't get too much into it on open forum, but I have access to a lot of to...

Re: Hi, noob from Alabama here...

Captain_Howdy1, I hope you are not from Tuscaloosa:-( I have an Amscope and have had it for four years. I think for the price for someone just starting it is a great intro scope. If you really get serious and as you continue to learn you you may find that it is less the scope Vs. the person behind ...

Re: Goldfish egg 0 to 4 days

cool! I keep fish as well...but they are mbunas so momma fish holds the eggs in her mouth...

a very enjoyable experience. I don't consider them pets or neither would I call fish keeping a hobby as it is too much work!

But I still enjoy it!

Re: pond water guys...

I have no idea what the three non-moving objects are in the lower left quadrant so if anyone does please comment. Possibly staurastrum A higher power objective would provide more detail.

Re: Hi, noob from Alabama here...

thank you all for the welcomes and the time you have given reading my post! I will ask one question before I get this thread off topic too much and I'll let it go and move on to a different subsection. Since you guys seem to know your stuff do any of you know whether or not the AmScope Plan Achro ob...

Re: Hi, noob from Alabama here...

Wish I could have gotten back sooner. But had a medical emergency with my puppy yesterday...he's ok now so I am thankful I think I made an obvious miscommunication about clear focus on my microscope.
